33-31 - 1/11
After being the Cardinals’ best hitter in April, Yadier Molina has seen his stats decline ever since. The catcher is hitting only .167 with no extra-base hits over 26 plate appearances in the month of June.

34-28 1 2/19
Missing eight weeks due to thumb surgery hasn’t seemed to slow down Josh Hamilton. The slugger has picked up right where he left off after starting the season hot, still sporting a .400 average entering the week.

33-26 1 1/10
What has happened to Joe Nathan? The Tigers closer has struggled with command in route to a 7.04 ERA entering the week, and nearly blew a four-run lead Saturday against the Red Sox.

Felix Hernandez set a new career high in strikeouts with 15 over seven innings Sunday afternoon against the Rays, but settled for a no-decision in a Mariners win.

32-29 5 3/14
Winners of seven of their last nine games, the Nationals are relying on excellent starting pitching to bring themselves into a tie with the Braves and Marlins in the NL East entering the week.

32-29 1 2/14
After back-to-back series losses last week, the Braves have surrendered their lead in the NL East.

33-30 5 11/28

12

33-31 4 2/12
With guys like Yasiel Puig and Hanley Ramirez often stealing the spotlight in LA, Dee Gordon’s league-leading 36 stolen bases entering the week is often overlooked as a key component of the Dodgers’ offense.

13

31-30 - 4/21
Despite a few decent outings this season, Ubaldo Jimenez still hasn’t broken out of a funk. In 13 starts, the righty has seen his ERA balloon to 5.01 with a 2-7 record.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

31-31 3 8/17
Derek Jeter’s final season isn’t exactly going according to plan. He sports a lousy .254 batting average along with one homer and 12 RBI in 53 games. Despite all that, he is leading the voting at shortstop for the All-Star Game.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

32-31 6 12/26
The Tribe’s up-and-down season continues after a sweep of the Red Sox early in the week followed by two wins over the weekend in Texas.

31-32 4 3/30
Serving as Texas’ DH until Prince Fielder was lost for the season, first baseman Mitch Moreland is the latest Ranger to land on the DL, leaving the team scrambling to find yet another roster replacement.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
17

29-33 7 5/28
The offense is still hitting at a high level, but the lack of quality pitching has led to the Rockies’ recent slide. Colorado has fallen from one of the league’s hottest teams to a sub-.500 club in a matter of two weeks.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

29-32 - 10/20
Joey Votto is on a rehab assignment in Triple-A Louisville, and the Reds can’t wait to get their slugger back in the lineup with their offense sitting in the league’s basement.

31-32 5 10/24
The AL Central is turning out to be one of the league’s tightest divisional races. The Royals are four games back of first, but also just a couple losses shy of sitting in last.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
20

31-33 3 17/26
Chris Sale took a tough-luck no-decision Saturday against the Angels, but remains one of the league’s best pitching talents. If the White Sox are going to make a surprise run, their ace will be the one leading the way.

28-35 2 18/27
Curtis Granderson’s batting average is still a meager .221 entering the week, but after slugging two home runs Sunday in San Francisco, things could be turning around for the veteran outfielder.

22

29-33 - 7/27
Gerrit Cole, who is 6-3 with a 3.64 ERA in 12 starts, is heading to the 15-day DL with shoulder fatigue. The Pirates are looking for him to return quickly as they sit eight games back in the division.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
23

29-32 - 18/29
The Twins weren’t expected to be in contention this season, but the signing of Kendrys Morales indicates that Minnesota is looking to make some noise. The ball club sits just five games out of first in the division as of Monday.

28-36 2 24/30
After another week, the Astros continue to be one of the league’s hottest teams with Jose Altuve leading the way offensively. The second baseman is leading baseball in hits entering the week, raising his average to .315.

28-37 3 18/30
A sweep of Colorado and a series win over Atlanta has the Diamondbacks looking like the team they should have been this season. Unfortunately it is likely too late for Arizona to recover from its terrible start.

26

28-34 6 3/27
Streaky would be the best way to describe this Red Sox crew. After losing 10 straight, then winning seven, Boston put together another five-game slide last week to slip in the rankings once again.

28-35 - 20/30
Yonder Alonso hit only six home runs all of last season, but in his last 21 games, he’s belted five homers and 13 RBI to regain his stroke at the plate.

The Cubs rode a five-game winning streak last week, with Jeff Samardzija notching his second win of the season Saturday after having his worst outing of the season just one start prior.

25-36 4 19/29
Ryan Howard continues to produce for the Phillies, however, the rest of the lineup isn’t doing its share as Philadelphia has dropped eight of its last 10 games in route to the NL’s worst record.

24-41 1 1/30
Thought to be one of the best teams prior to the season, the Rays now have the worst record in the league after winning just one of their last 13 games.
