1

54-37 2 1/20
Heading into the All-Star break, the Red Sox are the team to beat in the American League with their typical stars in Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz leading the team offensively amid several offseason moves paying dividends.

2

53-35 1 1/27
It was an underwhelming week for the Pirates, as they fall into a tie with the Cardinals in the division. Hopefully, Pittsburgh can find the magic quickly once again to avoid a midseason collapse as in years past.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
3

53-37 2 2/17
Oakland may be feeling a bit snubbed by voters after only one Athletic makes the All-Star roster, but it should be considered a compliment to the team’s solid play from top to bottom.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
4

53-34 - 1/9
The Cardinals swept the lowly Marlins to jump into a tie with the Pirates, who had an off week. Despite not having a dominating lead in their division, the Redbirds are still the team to beat in the second half of the season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
5

52-37 3 1/14
The Rangers took a flyer on Manny Ramirez, signing the veteran to a minor-league deal in what is considered a no-lose deal. Best-case scenario, he helps the lineup become one of the league’s most feared once again.

6

49-39 3 2/11
All eyes continue to be on Max Scherzer, who has a chance to collect his 14th win, but don’t forget about the league’s best lineup, led by Miguel Cabrera and Prince Fielder.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
7

50-39 1 2/13
Homer Bailey became the first major-leaguer to throw two no-hitters without another pitcher tossing one in between since Nolan Ryan after dominating the Giants’ lineup last Tuesday.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
8

51-38 1 1/10
Justin Upton, who was on a tear to start the season, has cooled off considerably with only three home runs since May 1, yet the Braves still remain one of the league’s best despite several stars struggling.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
9

48-41 3 3/23
Mariano Rivera gets to add one more All-Star Game, for 13 total, to his already outstanding career, earning it with 29 saves out of 31 opportunities and a 1.89 ERA entering the week.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
10

49-41 4 4/15
Adam Jones managed to thwart MLB’s all-time saves leader Mariano Rivera in New York on Sunday with a game-winning home run to pull the Orioles a half-game ahead of the Yankees in a tight AL East race.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
11

50-40 - 2/22
David Price came away with wins in two straight starts in his return to the Rays’ rotation, including throwing an eight-hit complete game to beat the White Sox on Sunday.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
12

46-43 2 3/18
Jordan Zimmermann, not Stephen Strasburg or Gio Gonzalez, is heading to the All-Star Game with a 12-3 record and the Nationals are building momentum with the return of Bryce Harper.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
13

47-42 2 7/17
The D-backs are riding a five-game winning streak entering the week after breaking out of a recent slump. If the team can take down the second-place Dodgers this week, Arizona will be in good shape heading into the break.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

43-45 2 2/26
The Angels continue to climb after a disastrous start, taking down the Cardinals and Red Sox in two straight series thanks, in part, to Josh Hamilton starting to show signs of improvement.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

46-43 5 5/26
The Indians’ up-and-down season continues with another off week for the club. Mark Reynolds’ recent slump has to be playing a role, with the DH going 0-for-20 with 11 strikeouts in a span of six games.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
16

43-45 3 1/25
The surging second-place Dodgers have a chance to close the gap in the NL West with the first-place Diamondbacks with three games this week in Arizona.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
17

43-45 4 8/27
The Blue Jays are starting to slump once again after being one of the league’s hottest teams only a couple of weeks back. Toronto is hovering near .500 but will need more consistency to make some noise in the second half.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
18

42-44 - 5/26
Despite pitching being the team’s strongest asset this season thus far, not one Kansas City hurler managed to make the All-Star squad. Only Salvador Perez and Alex Gordon get the nod.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
19

44-46 3 12/27
The Phillies are showing some signs of turning things around with series wins against the Pirates and Braves, but the turnaround might be a little too late to salvage the season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
20

43-47 3 4/23
Colorado had a chance to make a move in the NL West last week against the Dodgers and Diamondbacks, but failed to do so, coming away with only one win against Los Angeles and getting swept in Arizona.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
21

40-49 3 17/27
Not a bad week for the Mariners as they take two straight series on the road against the Rangers and Reds. This week could be a chance for Seattle to prove itself against Boston and the surging Angels.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
22

40-48 1 1/23
The Giants have gone just 3-13 in their past 16 games and are seven games below .500 entering the week in what has been a down year for most players on the squad.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
23

39-48 2 20/28
Travis Wood is the Cubs’ lone All-Star representative after starting the season in Triple-A. Not getting his first start until May, the left-hander has shown impressive improvement this year.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
24

40-50 4 12/29
With a nine-game losing streak entering the week, the Padres are looking like the rebuilding team they truly are after giving fans something to talk about by reaching .500 before the slide.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
25

38-48 1 16/29
Matt Harvey’s excellent season may have earned the pitcher a start in the All-Star Game at his home park in Citi Field after posting a 7-2 record with a 2.27 ERA entering this week.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
26

36-52 1 15/30
Ryan Braun is going to spend the All-Star break at home, while the Brewers send emerging stars Jean Segura and Carlos Gomez to the Midsummer Classic.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
27

37-49 4 19/27
At times, the Twins looked to be putting together at least a .500 season, but now it seems more likely Minnesota will have another 90-plus loss season with losing streaks piling up.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
28

32-56 1 27/30
There’s no embarrassment being swept by the Cardinals on the road, and the Marlins did manage to take a series from the NL East-leading Braves prior in a little victory during an overall disappointing season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
29

34-52 1 14/29
Starting pitchers continue to turn in quality starts, but still end up taking losses as the lineup can’t manage to pull its own weight with Chris Sale and John Danks becoming the latest victims last week.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

32-57 - 28/30
All-Star catcher Jason Castro helped lead the Astros past Yu Darvish, who nearly pitched a perfect game against the club in the second game of the season.
