The Athletics have won nine of 10 games entering the week and outscored the Indians 30-6 in a three-game series sweep as Oakland continues its winning formula.

27-12 1 1/10
Brad Ausmus has proved a very capable replacement for Jim Leyland and the Tigers are set on returning to the World Series after an exit in last season’s ALCS.

28-17 2 1/16
It took seven games, but Matt Cain finally picked up his first win of the season last week against the Marlins. He’s had better efforts this season, but the run support hasn’t been there. Perhaps things are about to turn in his favor?

27-17 - 1/22
The Brewers started the season hot, and many questioned if they sould sustain the early success. So far, Milwaukee has held first in the NL Central despite Carlos Gomez and Aramis Ramirez missing time.

5

23-21 5 1/11
After a lights-out postseason run in ’13, Trevor Rosenthal was expected to carry the success into the following season; however, the closer has been less than stellar for the Cardinals posting a 4.98 ERA and paltry 1.93 K/9 ratio.

6

23-20 6 3/14
Gio Gonzalez was placed on the DL after allowing 12 earned runs over just 7 1/3 innings in his last two starts, falling to a 3-4 overall record after dropping three-straight starts.

24-19 8 2/19
Though he remains maybe the best in the game, Mike Trout has seen some decline at the plate, at least compared to the lofty standards he’s held to.

8

23-20 1 8/17
The Yankees have a ½ game lead in the AL East entering the week, in what is shaping up to be the best divisional race in the majors so far. Can New York stay in front through the end of the season?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

25-20 4 5/28
After hitting a walk-off home run Sunday afternoon, Justin Morneau is proving to be a great offseason acquisition for the Rockies as a replacement to the retired Todd Helton.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
10

22-20 4 4/21
Matt Wieters could miss significant time due to an elbow injury which leaves the Orioles without a reliable catcher. Wieters was hitting .308 with five home runs and 18 RBI in 104 at-bats.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
11

23-22 4 2/12
Yasiel Puig continues to be the show-stealer in Los Angeles after adding three home runs and 10 RBI to his season totals while raising his batting average to .322 entering the week.

12

23-19 2 2/14
After starting the season as one of the baseball’s best, Atlanta has had a rough May, going 6-10 entering the week. Still, there’s plenty of time for the Braves to turn things around.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
13

21-23 5 3/30
Losing Martin Perez and Matt Harrison for the season is a big blow to the Rangers’ pitching rotation. The hitters will need to step up if Texas wants to make it through this season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

19-23 3 10/20
Johnny Cueto threw his third complete game of the season last week, dropping his major-league best ERA to 1.25 in nine starts. Could the Reds’ starter be a surprise NL Cy Young winner at season’s end?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

22-21 4 10/24
Alex Gordon has lacked power in ’14, but Sunday’s performance against Baltimore going 4 for 4 with a pair of three-run homers and six RBI is certainly a good way to break any sort of slide.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
16

23-22 2 11/28
The Marlins have performed better than most expected this season, but can Miami continue playing well with young pitching star Jose Fernandez’s season lost to Tommy John surgery?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
17

23-22 4 3/22
The Blue Jays are looking to put their disastrous ’13 season behind them and be the surprise winners of the AL East. Toronto is sitting just one game behind New York in the standings entering the week.

18

20-23 5 3/27
Just when the Red Sox looked to have something going, they come away with only one win last week in six games against the Twins and Tigers, and are in the middle of a four-game skid.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

19-22 1 19/29
The Phillies’ offense has looked flat at times this season, but after scoring 20 runs against Cincinnati over the weekend, Philadelphia could see a turnaround.

20

21-22 4 8/25
Since coming off the DL, Hisashi Iwakuma has a 2-0 record with 15 strikeouts and a 1.59 ERA entering the week. Despite a great pitching rotation, Seattle needs more from its lineup.

21

21-21 1 18/29
Brian Dozier is proving to be a spark for the quietly powerful Twins’ lineup in his third season in the majors. He leads the team in home runs with 11 and is quickly raising his batting average with his hot bat in the month of May.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
22

20-23 4 18/27
Daniel Murphy enters the week on a 10-game hitting streak and is one of the Mets best players. He leads the team with a .318 batting average along with 28 runs scored.

21-24 6 17/26
The MLB’s home run leader Jose Abreu was placed on the 15-day DL with ankle problems, will the rookie pick up where he left off when he returns from injury?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
24

19-26 1 1/30
The Rays need David Price to pitch well with the lack of depth in the rotation, due to injury. The team’s ace holds a 4-4 record with a 4.28 ERA over 69.1 innings.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
25

21-24 2 20/30
Much has been said about the Padres’ lack of offense this season. Maybe Carlos Quentin’s return from the DL will spark a much-needed increase in run production.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
26

19-25 2 12/26
Nick Swisher and Carlos Santana were expected to be anchors of the Indians’ lineup this season, however, both are hitting .196 and .152 respectively entering the week.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
27

18-25 2 7/27
Pittsburgh’s bullpen isn’t as dominant as it was last season, but it still needs to find a way to hold close leads if the Pirates are going to make up the ground lost this season.

28

18-28 - 18/30
Will hiring one of the greatest baseball minds in Tony LaRussa as chief baseball officer be enough to lift the Diamondbacks out of the hole they’ve created?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
29

16-28 1 24/30
Back-to-back series wins against the Rangers and White Sox have the Astros feeling good entering the week. George Springer is appearing to find his niche at the big-league level as well.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
30

15-27 1 21/30
Mike Olt has shown some pop at the plate with nine home runs on the season entering the week, but his batting average is sitting at .176 in 102 at-bats.
