I agree mostly as seen in a few posts above this one, but I think Alexei could also help a contending team with a SS problem (St. Louis unless they just stick Descalso there, Yankees if Jeter remains injured, Cincinnati). De Aza's stats this season look quite similar to Rios, although he is a more frustrating player to watch than Rios.
