MLB Power Rankings Week 25

Garrett Richards

16. Atlanta Braves (75-74) (LW 14) – The Braves have lost six of their last seven, making a playoff run more difficult, now sitting four games back of the second Wild Card spot. Their struggles are largely caused by their offense, which is averaging less than three runs a game this month.

17. Miami Marlins (72-76) (LW 17) – The Marlins still had an outside shot at a playoff berth, but likely not after losing MVP-candidate Giancarlo Stanton when he was hit by a fastball in the face. They’ll now just have to hope he heals in time to return next year.

18. Tampa Bay Rays (72-78) (LW 18)With a homer on Sunday, Ben Zobrist reached the 30-double, 10-home run plateau for the fourth straight season, becoming the first Ray to accomplish that feat.

19. New York Mets (72-78) (LW 19)Zack Wheeler gave up six runs over four innings against Washington on Saturday. It was the first time he allowed more than three earned runs in a start since June 25th.

20. Cincinnati Reds (71-79) (LW 22) – If nothing else, the Reds at least have Aroldis Chapman. The flamethrower could break several records this year, including K/9 (17.62), K/BB rate (4.7), and K% (51.9).
