MLB Power Rankings Week 19

The Oakland Athletics are locked into the top spot in the XN Sports MLB Power Rankings after another huge trade to land a top-notch starter.

Jon Lester

11. Pittsburgh Pirates (59-52) (LW 12) – During the last seven days, Josh Harrison slugged 1.129 thanks to five home runs, four doubles, and a triple. His OPS during that time was an incredible 1.629.

12. Atlanta Braves (58-54) (LW 9)Ervin Santana has been great since the All-Star Break. In four starts, he is 3-0, with a 1.18 ERA, and 28 strikeouts in 28 innings.

13. Cleveland Indians (56-55) (LW 14)Corey Kluber has had back-to-back nine-inning performances without allowing an earned run, and fell one out shy of a complete game in his previous start. He has turned in quality starts in seven of his last eight outings.

14. New York Yankees (57-53) (LW 13) –The Yankees were active ahead of the trade deadline, bringing in some bats to help the offense. But it’s hard to believe their pitching staff can match up with the likes of the A’s and Tigers if they are able to reach the playoffs.

15. Kansas City Royals (57-53) (LW 17)Eric Hosmer could miss six weeks due to a fractured hand, which is a tough break for Kansas City. Hosmer had just enjoyed his best month of the year, hitting .366/.425/.535 in July.
