24-14 - 1/16
Brandon Belt is expected to miss six weeks after choosing to undergo thumb surgery, but the Giants should have enough depth to be fine in the meantime without the slugger.

23-15 2 1/9
The A’s lineup isn’t loaded with power, but the team is seeing success this season by keeping strikeouts low, and making contact with the ball consistently to back up excellent pitching.

21-12 - 1/10
Austin Jackson, who is on a nine-game hitting streak with a .301 average entering the week, has taken over Prince Fielder’s old spot in the lineup, giving the Tigers a new element of speed in the heart of the order.

24-14 2 1/22
After tearing through the schedule to start the season, the Brewers have seen a drop-off in success during the past two weeks, likely due to Ryan Braun’s DL stint.

Troy Tulowitzki is batting .395 entering the week, and Jordan Lyles is pitching lights-out with a 5-0 record along with a 2.66 ERA after taking the win Saturday against the Reds.

19-19 1 3/30
Tough break for Yu Darvish, who nearly tossed a no-hitter on Friday, losing it with two outs in the ninth. If only the Rangers’ other starting pitchers could come that close.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

19-17 3 8/18
CC Sabathia heads to the 15-day DL with right knee issues. Whether or not his knee was contributing to his diminished fastball velocity remains to be seen.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

19-19 2 1/11
Lance Lynn has the potential to be a top-of-the-rotation pitcher, but has to find a way to avoid big innings after another decent outing was undone by the Pirates’ bats on Saturday.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
11

17-19 1 10/21
Closer Aroldis Chapman picked up his first save this season by striking out the side against the Rockies on Sunday. It was his first game back from the DL since getting struck by a comebacker during spring training.

19-18 1 3/14
Jordan Zimmerman has been pitching well to stabilize the Nationals’ starting pitching this season, and with Doug Fister making his debut last week, Washington’s rotation is finally at full force.

13

19-18 - 3/27
Last week could be the start of a turnaround for Boston. The Red Sox have won six of their last eight, despite being nearly no-hit by Yu Darvish on Friday.

21-15 5 2/15
After struggling to find wins over the past two weeks, the Braves swept the Cubs over the weekend, injecting some life into a roster that needs it with a tough stretch of opponents coming up.

19-17 1 1/19
Despite playing with a slew of regulars on the DL, the Angels have managed to play above .500 and have the American League’s third-best run differential at plus-32 after Sunday’s win over Toronto.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
16

19-18 7 6/25
Taking three of four from the division-leading A’s was a good way to start the week, but Felix Hernandez needs to break his one-month winless streak if Seattle wants to keep things up.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

19-20 4 17/26
Alexi Ramirez is tied for first in the American League with a .333 batting average entering the week. Will the career .280 hitter be able to keep the hot bat all season?

The Marlins were riding high with a five-game winning streak to begin the week, however Miami took a step back after losing three of four to the Padres in San Diego and now Jose Fernandez hits the DL.

18-19 2 4/24
The Royals were hoping for a breakout season from Mike Moustakas, but six weeks in, the third baseman is facing a demotion to Triple-A after hitting .147 in 33 games.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
20

17-19 1 19/29
Cliff Lee is playing well as expected and Cole Hamels’ good outing Sunday could be a turning point. A.J. Burnett’s hot start gives the Phillies a formidable triple-threat in the rotation.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
21

18-20 1 3/22
One of the worst bullpens in the league should see more stability with closer Casey Janssen being activated from the DL after missing the first six weeks of the season.

After recent quality starts, Twins starting pitchers Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes are hoping to continue to see improvements since starting slow this season.

After another off-week, the Rays are falling fast in the standings. Luckily one good week could reverse the trend, but the schedule isn’t getting any easier.

John Axford was removed from the closer duties last week, with the nod going to a four-man crew of Cody Allen, Scott Atchison, Marc Rzepczynski and Bryan Shaw until he is deemed ready to resume his ninth inning spot.

17-19 8 18/27
Jenrry Mejia is in jeopardy of losing his starting role after posting a 9.82 ERA in his last three starts. Despite the struggles, the Mets starter still does not have a loss on his 3-0 record.

The Diamondbacks are starting to show signs of life after a disastrous start to the season. Unfortunately the damage is done and Arizona may not be able to climb out of the hole it has created.

12-26 - 22/30
