The MLB season is now a week old, and already we are seeing some great play. There are some teams performing much better than we expected, and some struggling more than we thought coming out of the gate. Will the struggling teams be able to get out of the early holes they are digging themselves in, and will the hot starting teams be able to maintain that throughout the season? We will be able to figure that out in the coming weeks and months, as there is plenty of baseball still left to be played.

For now though, we will rank teams how they currently stand. We take a look at the team’s current record, recent standing, and how they have performed recently on the field. Without any further ado, let’s take a look at the MLB Power Rankings for Week 2 of the season.

30. Minnesota Twins (1-5) The first cellar dwellars of the season should get used to being down here this season. The Twins have some of the best prospects in baseball, but they are not yet with the MLB team. Until that happens, this team will struggle to win many games, and could be the worst team in the AL and possibly MLB this season. They had the unfortunate luck of Chris Sale making his season debut against them, and things won’t be getting easier this week. They will start things off hosting the red hot Royals then Indians.

29. Milwaukee Brewers (1-5) The Brewers caught a tough draw to start the season. They saw first hand what a healthy Rockies’ lineup is capable of doing, then had to face off with a Pirates team looking for their first win of the season after getting swept by the Reds. The results were a disastrous 1-5 start as youngster Jimmy Nelson was the only pitcher to have much success the opening week. The Brewers cannot be happy with the whoopings they have taken in the two Kyle Lohse starts this season, or the slow start everyone in their lineup not named Adam Lind has gotten off to.

28. Miami Marlins (1-5) Expectations are high in Miami this season, as they signed Giancarlo Stanton to a massive contract extension and added some more talent to the roster through free agency and trades. It will take a little while for things to come together, but for a young team like the Marlins hopefully it is sooner than later or they could fall into a hole deeper than they can come out of. Mat Latos making it through an inning in his next start would be a nice improvement, and getting their offense on track is a must. They already have three losses this season in games they have allowed two or less runs.
