MLB Power Rankings Week 23

yasiel puig

There is just one month left to the Major League Baseball season and the final push is on for the playoffs. In addition to the 10 teams currently holding postseason spots, there are six more that are within five games of a Wild Card berth.

The next few weeks will focus on those races as teams try to make their moves. But this past week was about the teams at the top. The Angels and Athletics met in a battle for MLB supremacy, and it was L.A. which cemented its status as the league’s best team.

Meanwhile, Oakland’s struggles have opened the door for other teams to climb up this week’s power rankings, most notably the Orioles and Dodgers. These rankings also see the return of a former top-10 team almost cracking the top five.
