The Tigers are of course looking to move big contracts this offseason, and the Dodgers, with the likely departure of free agent Chase Utley, are in the market for a second baseman. That, naturally enough, brings us to Ian Kinsler ...

Kinsler, who's going into his age-35 season, is coming off a very productive 2016. In 153 games for Detroit, he batted .288/.348/.484 with 28 home runs, plus fielding, and good base-running. For his career, Kinsler owns an OPS+ of 111 across parts of 11 major-league seasons. As second basemen go, Kinsler's been remarkably durable and consistent at the plate and in the field. While he's at an age that lends itself to decline, the skills appear very much intact.

As for the money side of things, Kinsler's owed $11 million for the upcoming season, and his contract includes a $10 million option/$5 million buyout for 2018. That's a bargain for a player of Kinsler's caliber, and because of that bargain status the Tigers should be able to get a healthy return. As for the Dodgers, the market's largely devoid of sound second base solutions, especially since Neil Walker accepted the Mets' qualifying offer. A trade for Kinsler may be L.A.'s best path to an upgrade over decline-phase Utley.
