Whether they're making diving plays alongside leading outfielders or turning two at second base, the top MLB utility players may not always have a place on the field, but they're key players nonetheless.

When it comes to a list of the best current MLB utility players, guys like Chris Taylor, Eduardo Nunez, and Ian Happ are certainly making it toward the top. Yet you also have to consider the ever-versatile Howie Kendrick and slugger Ben Zobrist, among many other players who can perform almost anywhere they're put on the field. Who do you think are the top utility players in baseball right now? Kike Hernández? Charlie Culberson?
