1

66-41 - 1/9
The A’s took care of business against the Astros and Rangers. This week they get the Astros again in Houston followed by Kansas City. And they’ll likely continue to roll.

63-43 - 2/19
As stout as the A’s are this season, the Angels are keeping right on their tails sitting just two games behind in the AL West entering the week. It should be a good race through September.

3

58-47 - 3/14
The Nationals managed to play with a full roster for a short time, but now will be without Ryan Zimmerman as he heads to the DL again with a hamstring injury. He’s already missed 44 games this season due to injury.

4

60-46 3 4/21
The Orioles took two series wins over the Mariners and Angels last week, but might be looking to add some rotation depth at the trade deadline to hold the AL East lead.

5

61-47 3 2/12
With a sweep of the Giants over the weekend, the Dodgers took back first place in the NL West and created a little space as the race between the two teams heats up.

6

58-46 1 1/10
The Tigers acquired former Rangers closer Joakim Soria last week, and will use him in the later innings for bullpen relief. He could be a candidate to take over the closer role if Joe Nathan struggles.

7

58-50 3 2/14
Jason Heyward’s streak of reaching base in 16 consecutive games was snapped Monday after the slugger exited the game with back soreness. Atlanta needs him to return soon as it tries to regain the lead in the NL East.

56-50 2 1/11
A.J. Pierzynski struggled in Boston, leading to his release. Will the change of scenery help him? The catcher got off to a nice start going 3 for 4 with an RBI in his St. Louis debut.

60-49 4 1/22
After kicking off July with a 2-10 record, the Brewers have seemingly shaken off the struggles going 6-4 in their last 10 games since the break.

10

57-50 1 7/27
The Pirates have made moves at the trade deadline for three-straight seasons since returning to contention. Will they make it four years in a row by bringing in another name to help down the stretch?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
11

58-50 - 1/16
Jake Peavy’s debut with the Giants didn’t quite go to plan. The former Red Sox starter took the loss Sunday as the Dodgers completed a weekend sweep. Peavy hasn’t won a game since April 25 this year.

55-52 2 8/25
Addressing the need for another bat in the lineup, the Mariners bring Kendrys Morales back into the fold, but could still be shopping for more offensive power this week at the deadline.

13

59-50 2 3/22
Despite the lineup not being at full strength with Brett Lawrie, Edwin Encarnacion and Adam Lind on the mend, the Blue Jays are keeping pace in the AL East after another good week.

14

53-55 3 1/30
Will the Rays trade or keep David Price? That is biggest question this week with several suitors in the mix, but Tampa Bay has made up ground in the AL East and could keep the ace.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

54-52 3 10/24
The Royals may be looking to add a bat in this week’s trade deadline sitting just five games behind Detroit entering the week with a big weekend series against Oakland looming.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

55-52 - 8/17
The Yankees acquired Chase Headley from the Padres last week. In his first game with his new club he delivered a walk-off single to lead New York over the Rangers Tuesday.

Carlos Santana tied the team record for home runs in a series after clubbing his fourth and fifth shots of the four-game set Sunday in an Indians win over the Royals.

The Reds headed into the All-Star Game as one of the hottest teams, but returned from the break to lose seven-straight games and have won only once since.

53-54 4 11/28
After another good week going 6-1 against Atlanta and Houston, the Marlins are just 5.5 games back for the second wild-card spot and seven behind in the NL East.

52-56 1 17/26
The White Sox continue to play good baseball thanks to Chris Sale’s 10 wins and 1.88 ERA in 16 starts. Jose Abreu padded his Rookie of the Year campaign hitting his league-leading 30th home run on Friday.

52-56 - 18/27
After a good showing on the road last week, the Mets raise their July record to 13-9 entering Monday’s action. Can they finish the season strong with a winning record?

48-58 - 18/29
Kendrys Morales was traded to Seattle last week. Will other players hitting free agency after this season - like Josh Willingham and Kevin Correia - be on the move this week?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets

48-60 3 3/27
Jake Peavy was sent to the Giants last week. Will Jon Lester be the next starting pitcher heading out of Boston before the trade deadline on July 31?

24

47-61 - 19/29
Cliff Lee has struggled in his two starts since returning from the DL. He pitched 10.2 innings in the two games, giving up 21 hits and nine earned runs. Can he still be moved at the deadline?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
25

48-59 2 20/30
Odrisamer Despaigne has been dazzling for the Padres in his short time in San Diego, but finally hit a rough spot in his start on Saturday, allowing six hits and five runs (two earned) in 3.2 innings against Atlanta.

47-61 1 18/30
Arizona had a club-record payroll around $110 million on Opening Day only to stumble out of the gates. Now, the Diamondbacks might try to trade some of that salary to prepare for a reload in ’15.

44-63 1 5/28
As if things couldn’t get worse for these Rockies, Justin Morneau and Troy Tulowitzki - who leads the NL with a .340 batting average - both landed on the DL last week.
