31-22 4 1/10
By his standards, Miguel Cabrera struggled in April. But his month of May was a different story as he hit .380 and drove in 34.

28-28 4 5/29
After a great start, the Rockies are sliding back to mediocrity. Will a trip back to hitter-friendly Coors Field for a 10-game homestand bring some life back to Colorado?

29-26 2 8/18
Masahiro Tanaka improved to 8-1 on the season after earning the win against Minnesota on Saturday. The Yankees rookie from Japan also sports an AL-leading 2.06 ERA.

27-28 - 2/14

29-29 1 17/26
The White Sox are at .500 entering June, and with rookie Jose Abreu returning to the lineup, Chicago could still be a surprise team this season.

26-29 1 10/22
The Reds have had problems stringing together wins this season, but the back of the bullpen has been superb at protecting leads. Of course Cincinnati has to hold the lead until the seventh inning for them to be effective.

The Mets aren’t knocking any doors down this season, but at just four games out of first place in the NL East entering the week, New York does have a chance to surprise.

After losing 10-straight games, the Red Sox rattled off seven-straight wins. Will Boston be able to keep things going during a nine-game road trip?

Arizona went a decent 14-13 in May, but after the Diamondbacks dug themselves into a 9-22 start in April, they are still sitting in the basement of the NL West.
