1

59-36 - 1/9
The Angels and Mariners aren’t making things easy in the AL West, but at the All-Star break there is no team better in the majors than the A’s.

57-37 - 2/19
Entering the break as the hottest team in baseball, the Angels are looking to make the second half one to remember as they battle the A’s for the division title.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
3

53-38 1 1/10
Released by Houston prior to the season, J.D. Martinez has been one of the biggest surprises for the Tigers as he is hitting .346 with 13 home runs and 43 RBI in 55 games this season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
4

54-43 1 2/12
After clubbing eight homers in May, Yasiel Puig was held homerless in June and has only one in July thus far. Could a Home Run Derby appearance break the Dodgers young star out of a power funk?

5

52-42 2 4/21
With Chris Davis and Manny Machado falling short in the season’s first half, Nelson Cruz carried the team offensively with his 28 homers. Enough to put the Orioles in first place in the AL East at the break.

6

51-42 2 3/14
After dealing with a number of injuries in the first half, the Nationals are healthy and have pulled into a tie for first in the NL East with the Braves. Can Washington keep everyone on the field for a division-title run?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
7

52-43 1 2/14
Once considered one of the best second basemen in the league, Dan Uggla is a shell of his former self for the second-straight season as he is hitting .162 with two homers and 10 RBI in limited play.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
8

52-44 3 1/11
Adam Wainwright gets the nod to start the All-Star Game over Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw. It’s not all good news though in St. Louis as Yadier Molina is expected to miss 8-12 weeks with a thumb injury.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
9

51-44 - 8/25
Felix Hernandez, with his team record-setting 2.12 ERA, is the AL squad’s starter Tuesday on FOX. So far, his numbers are better at this point than they were during his 2010 Cy Young winning season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
10

51-44 5 10/20
Despite some struggles due to injury, the Reds enter the All-Star break just 1.5 games behind the Brewers in the division.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
11

53-43 6 1/22
Once looking like a lock to be the winners of the NL Central, the Brewers’ lead has shrunken considerably. The Cardinals, Reds and Pirates are all within 3.5 games of taking the division crown.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
12

49-46 2 7/27
The Pirates needed a big week against the Cardinals and Reds on the road, but were unable to deliver winning just once in each series to fall behind pace in the division.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
13

52-43 1 1/16
Buster Posey and Madison Bumgarner became the first batterymates to hit a grand slam in the same game in MLB history Sunday. The Giants hope to regain some momentum after the break.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

48-46 1 10/24
The Royals have managed to stay in the playoff hunt despite their lack of a powerful offense. If Kansas City can add a bat at the deadline, expect it to be in contention.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

47-47 1 12/26
Cleveland enters the All-Star break with a .500 record despite struggling to play consistent baseball. If they can overcome these issues in the second half, the Indians could return to the playoffs.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
16

49-47 4 3/22
For the Blue Jays, the All-Star break comes just in time. They need to regroup after losing their handle on the AL East in recent weeks to the uprising Orioles.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
17

47-47 - 8/17
Rookie Masahiro Tanaka has been nothing short of outstanding this season, but the Yankees are going to have to survive without him as he rehabs a partial tear in his UCL.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
18

44-53 - 1/30
After becoming one of the biggest disappointments of the season, the Rays have rebounded with a 13-5 stretch heading into the break. They sit at 9.5 games back in the AL East.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
19

45-50 4 18/27
The Mets look to be heating up as they break for the All-Star Game after taking three of four against the Braves and sweeping the Marlins last week.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
20

45-51 1 17/26
While the White Sox are not likely to be contenders in the second half, they could end the season around .500, an improvement after a disastrous 99-loss season in ’13.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
21

44-50 3 18/29
Phil Hughes could be the AL’s comeback player of the year if he continues to perform well after going 10-5 with a 3.92 ERA for the Twins in the first half.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
22

43-52 - 3/27
The World Series champions certainly weren’t expecting to be at the bottom of the AL East standings at the All-Star break. Can they make a second-half run to defend their title?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
23

44-50 3 11/28
For the first time since 2010, the Marlins will have two representatives at the All-Star Game after Henderson Alvarez was named to the team to replace Nationals’ pitcher Jordan Zimmerman. He joins slugger Giancarlo Stanton.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
24

42-53 1 19/29
Sweeping the Brewers in four games last week injected some life into a Phillies squad that looked down-and-out after a rough 1-9 stretch.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
25

40-54 4 21/30
More players could be shopped at the trade deadline for the Cubs, but stars Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro should remain in the core as the team continues to rebuild.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
26

40-55 2 5/28
Once near the top of the NL West standings, the Rockies enter the break near the bottom due to a pitching staff that lacks the ability to support the powerful offense.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
27

40-56 3 24/30
With 130 hits on the season, Jose Altuve holds the Astros’ record for hits before the All-Star break, and is a big reason why Houston isn’t sitting in the AL West basement.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
28

40-56 1 18/30
Despite playing better baseball of late, the Diamondbacks are still buried in the NL West at 13.5 games back, likely making the team sellers at the trade deadline.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
29

41-54 3 20/30
A respectable pitching staff led some to believe the Padres could be surprise contenders, but with an inept offense taking the field, San Diego isn’t likely competing this season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
30

38-57 3 3/30
The Rangers are losers of eight straight heading into the All-Star break. Texas is now sitting in the basement of the AL West (under its state-rival Astros) and has the league’s worst record.
