The only other player to match or better Kemp's numbers in hits, homers and RBI in his team's first 15 games of a season was Willie Mays for the 1964 Giants. Solid company...

7

10-7 4 3/18
Michael Bourn’s early season struggles have passed as the speedy center fielder’s ability to set the table for the big bats of Freddie Freeman and Jason Heyward is paying off nicely for the Braves.

9-7 - 1/15
It will be a challenging week for the Rays, who won five games last week, as they host the Angels and close out in Arlington.

10-6 3 7/25
Ricky Romero won two games last week and Colby Rasmus is heating up at the plate, two very good signs for the Jays.

10-6 - 3/25
Philip Humber’s perfect game was the highlight of the White Sox's sweep of the M's in Seattle.

8-8 2 5/27
Catcher Josh Thole is quietly off to a fantastic start this season. Jason Bay has shown flashes of his old self, making diving plays and hitting monster home runs.

9-7 11 1/29
Matt Wieters had a big week at the plate for the Orioles, who continue to surprise early this season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
13

9-8 8 4/22
The offense stalled during a five-game skid that just so happened to coincide with Chris Young being placed on the 15-day disabled list.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

9-7 - 4/16
Pablo Sandoval is tearing the cover off the ball for the Giants, hitting safely in each of his first 14 games of this season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

7-8 1 6/26
The Marlins finished 5-1 during their first homestand at the new park and had their first game called this season due to weather, and it wasn’t even in Miami! Set off the fish sculpture!

16

8-7 6 16/29
Rockies outfielder Michael Cuddyer is on a mission to prove he is worth the three-year, $31.5 million deal he signed with Colorado in the offseason. So far, so good.

8-6 3 6/29
The Indians are keeping up in the AL Central despite the struggles of Opening Day starter Justin Masterson.

Cliff Lee joined Ryan Howard and Chase Utley on the disabled list, hurting a team that needed to rely on its pitching while the powerful offense continues to recover.

Heading into this week, Vernon Wells had more home runs (3) than Albert Pujols, Torii Hunter and Kendrys Morales combined (1).

Ryan Braun has struggled to start the season. Maybe receiving his MVP trophy last week will remind him just how valuable his play is to the Brewers success.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
21

8-10 5 4/28
Bartolo Colon is off to a great start and a big reason the A’s have one of the best pitching staffs in the AL.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
22

7-9 3 1/22
Aroldis Chapman has been absolutely filthy out of the bullpen this season, which begs the question: How long do the Reds wait to move him into the starting rotation? The clock is ticking...
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
23

6-9 4 5/27
Through their first 15 games, the Pirates have yet to score or allow more than five runs in any contest. Good pitching still requires good offense and the Buccos just can’t seem to put things together.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

7-10 3 18/26
The Mariners had a rough week, losing five of six at Safeco and being on the wrong end of Philip Humber’s perfect game.

6-11 - 22/30
Jordan Schafer became just the 10th player in franchise history to hit a grand slam from the top spot in the batting order and first to do so since Craig Biggio in 2007.

The only thing that saved the Red Sox from getting swept at home by the rival Yanks was a timely rainout.

They finally did it. It took them 17 games, but they finally did it. The Friars won consecutive games for the first time this season with back-to-back wins over Philadelphia.

5-12 2 22/30
The Twins had their best week of the season, but still finished with a 3-4 record.

3-13 5 13/29
The Royals' 10-game home skid to open the season is the worst in franchise history and marks the third worst in league history.

5-12 2 24/30
Kerry Wood and Ryan Dempster to the DL. Marlon Byrd traded. Have the Cubs thrown in the towel before May?
