The season is heating up, and the MLB power rankings are starting to roll out some surprises, and some long-held expectations. What was looking like an exciting weekend series between the Braves and Nationals ended up in a sweep by the Braves, with a 9-0 shutout cherry on top.
The red-hot Oakland A’s finally met their match in the Detroit Tigers who are mashing an MLB-leading .302 over the first two weeks. Arizona and Colorado are still afloat in the NL West, while the AL West is still sorting itself out with a lackluster start by the Angels.
Things are starting to balance out across baseball, so it’s still very tough to get a read on a handful of teams. It’s still early to determine where the middle-of-the-road clubs will end up come September, but as the projected powerhouses either sink or float, the middling teams will find their way in or out of the mix.
