1. New York Yankees
Previous Ranking: 1
The gap between the Yankees and the field seems to grow larger by the day. While the other top-ranked teams have hit small hiccups, the Yankees have stayed consistent. They remain number 1 in the Power Rankings.
2. Los Angeles Dodgers
Previous Ranking: 2
The Dodgers remain in the Major League lead in total run differential. They took 2/3 from the White Sox this week. Mookie Betts has cooled off as of late, with an average just above .280 at this point.
3. New York Mets
Previous Ranking: 4
The Mets are on the doorstep of passing the Dodgers for the 2nd ranked spot on this list. An eventual return of Jacob DeGrom could speed this process up. The league eagerly awaits his return.
4. Houston Astros
Previous Ranking: 3
The Astros remain firm in the top 5. They’ve had 5 straight series against bottom of the barrel teams(Mariners twice, Athletics, Royals, Marlins) and they look to build momentum as they face the Yankees and Mets twice a piece to end the month.
5. San Diego Padres
Previous Ranking: 5
The surging Padres won 2 straight series against 2 top 10 teams in the Mets and Brewers. They look to stay in the top 5 as the return of Fernando Tatis draws closer.
6. Toronto Blue Jays
Previous Ranking: 7
The Blue Jays lineup is starting to catch fire as they had been expected to. They are led by Alek Manoah and Kevin Gausman in their pitching rotation, which has been above average this season.
7. Tampa Bay Rays
Previous Ranking: 8
The Rays come in ranked 7th in the league, but 3rd in their own division. They would be the leader in multiple divisions in the MLB, but they are almost 10 games back in the AL East. A wild card spot will be their most likely path to the playoffs.
8. St. Louis Cardinals
Previous Ranking: 9
The Cardinals have made the race for the NL Central into a close one. They need to take advantage of the sliding Brewers to create a gap and overtake the NL Central lead.
9. Minnesota Twins
Previous Ranking: 10
The Twins must stay on track to hold onto their AL Central lead. The second-place Guardians have been hot as of late and the Twins will need to win a few series in a row to keep a decent grasp on the division.
10. Atlanta Braves
Previous Ranking: 12
The World Series champs are hot!! They currently have won 9/10 games and they don’t play another opponent with an above .500 record until June 20th. They could break into the top 10 in next week’s ranking if all goes well for Atlanta.
11. Milwaukee Brewers
Previous Ranking: 6
The Brewers, along with the rest of the NL Central, have struggled as of late. They are 1-9 in their last 10 games. Josh Hader proved to be human this week, as he allowed his first runs of the entire season.
12. San Francisco Giants
Previous Ranking: 11
After having quite a disappointing series against the Colorado Rockies, Darin Ruf put together a big game to lead the Giants to a game 1 victory over the first place Dodgers.
13. Philadelphia Phillies
Previous Ranking: 17
Finally!!! The Phillies are playing to their potential!! They went on a lengthy win streak over the last two weeks. This hot streak includes a sweep over the top 10 ranked Milwaukee Brewers. The Phillies are HOT.
14. Boston Red Sox
Previous Ranking: 16
The Red Sox have emerged above .500 this week, promptly placing themselves in the AL Wild Card race. They will need to catch division rivals, the Blue Jays and the Rays, which hold 2 of those 3 spots as of now.
15. Cleveland Guardians
Previous Ranking: 13
The Guardians have one of the youngest rosters in the entire league. They pair this with one of the best farm systems in the league. Oh, and they’re tied for the final AL playoff spot. The future is bright Cleveland.
16. Chicago White Sox
Previous Ranking: 18
The White Sox have had quite a disappointing 2022 season. But, don’t panic White Sox faithful. The team is only 2.5 games away from a playoff spot. With the talent on this team, the season is far from lost at this point.
17. Miami Marlins
Previous Ranking: 22
The Marlins have some really fun players. Jazz Chisholm is working to bring the fun back to baseball, while leading the team in home runs and triples. Sandy Alcantara and Edward Cabrera throw 94 and 95 MPH changeups. Changeups at 94+?? Yeah, the future is here and thriving on that Miami pitching staff.
18. Los Angeles Angels
Previous Ranking: 14
After riding a 14 game losing streak, the Angels finally checked back into the win column with a 5-2 win over the Boston Red Sox. This win was carried by an Ohtani home run and a tremendous pitching performance from him as well.
19. Arizona Diamondbacks
Previous Ranking: 15
The Diamondbacks remain the odd men out in the NL West. They appear to be a few steps behind the playoff contending teams. This season has been an overachievement for Arizona, but they are still a few years from a playoff berth.
20. Texas Rangers
Previous Ranking: 19
Martin Perez had his worst start of the season this week. He allowed a season high in hits(12), runs(7), and earned runs(6). This is the first time his ERA has been above a 2.00 since May 15.
21. Seattle Mariners
Previous Ranking: 20
Logan Gilbert has been a Major League caliber ace this year for Seattle. With his ERA down over 2 runs from last year, he looks to continue to build on this season as the year wears on.
22. Colorado Rockies
Previous Ranking: 21
The Rockies lineup has been contenting quality this year. The pitching staff has not. They have allowed an incredible 336 runs in 60 games, good for a team ERA of 5.07.
23. Pittsburgh Pirates
Previous Ranking: 24
The Pirates remain in dead last in the MLB in run differential. For them to only be 10 games under .500 is quite spectacular, given their low runs scored and dreadful run differential.
24. Chicago Cubs
Previous Ranking: 23
The Cubs join the rest of the NL Central as teams that have been sliding as of late. They had a tough matchup against the powerhouse New York Yankees, which did not pan out well for Chicago.
25. Baltimore Orioles
Previous Ranking: 25
The Orioles are off to their best start in years. They are currently on pace to win almost 70 games, which would be the most wins in a year since the 2017 season.
26. Detroit Tigers
Previous Ranking: 27
Miguel Cabrera joined elite company as just the seventh player in MLB history to tally 3,000 career hits and 500 career home runs. Legendary.
27. Washington Nationals
Previous Ranking: 28
The Nationals are dead last in the MLB in run differential. They have also allowed the most runs in the MLB as well. With a down year from Juan Soto, there isn’t much for Nationals fans to be happy about with this team.
28. Kansas City Royals
Previous Ranking: 30
The Royals tallied a few wins in a row to escape the daunting 30th ranking. They are 1 of just 4 teams to have allowed more than 300 runs so far this season.
29. Cincinnati Reds
Previous Ranking: 29
The Reds best hitter this season, Tyler Stephenson, has been sidelined for 4-6 weeks with a broken thumb. The second-year catcher was off to a fantastic start. He very well could have been selected as an All-Star this season.
30. Oakland Athletics
Previous Ranking: 26
The Athletics are the third team to be given the 30th ranking spot on this list. They join the Reds and the Royals as the three teams to be placed in the last place of the Power Rankings. There have been very few bright spots for this team as they lost 10 games in a row over a two week stretch.
