Need a DH? Don’t mind spending $20 million for a guy whose best years are likely behind him? Call Dayton Moore today:

Butler is coming off his worst season, in which he hit .289/.374/.412. That’s still useful, particularly in the OBP department, but that’s a lot of money to pay for a guy with no defensive value.
