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.

26. Chicago Cubs (47-63) (LW 28) – The Cubs are getting closer to becoming a contender as they continue to stockpile talent. After the trade of Jeff Samardzija netted them Addison Russell, they picked up catching prospect Victor Caratini for Emilio Bonifacio and James Russell.

27. Houston Astros (47-65) (LW 29) – The Astros are again sacrificing the present for the future, trading away two Major Leaguers in Jarred Cosart and Kike Hernandez. But they could win this deal in the long run, thanks to picking up highly-regarded third base prospect Colin Moran.

28. Philadelphia Phillies (49-63) (LW 26) – For a team going nowhere and with assets, to do nothing at the trade deadline is a huge disappointment. It’s hard to see this franchise turning things around anytime soon.

29. Colorado Rockies (44-67) (LW 27) – The Rockies now own the second-worst record in baseball thanks to their current skid. They have lost seven of eight games, scoring just 23 runs during that stretch.

30. Texas Rangers (43-68) (LW 30) – Pitching continues to let this team down. Over the last seven games, the Rangers allowed nine or more runs three times.
