15. Los Angeles Dodgers (3-3) The Dodgers have high aspirations coming into the season once again. Adrian Gonzalez has done his part thus far, batting an absurd .609 with five home runs and seven RBI through the first six games. The hitting isn’t the problem for the Dodgers though, as they have some serious question marks on their pitching staff. Beyond Clayton Kershaw, who has struggled thus far, and Zack Greinke, the Dodgers staff isn’t very strong. Same goes for the bullpen without Kenley Jansen closing out games. They will be in a dogfight all season.

14. Baltimore Orioles (3-3) The Orioles got bombarded by the bats of the Blue Jays in the second series of the season after taking the opening one from the Rays. The most surprising takeaway from the series against the Blue Jays may have been that nominal ace Chris Tillman and Bud Norris were the ones to got hit hard, not Ubaldo Jimenez. Jimenez pitched a seven inning gem, allowing only two base runners and striking out eight. If he has turned the corner again, the Orioles may have the ace they have been missing.

13. Arizona Diamondbacks (3-3) Like the Padres, the Diamondbacks had to go up against the class of the NL West the first week of the season and come away rather satisfied. Archie Bradley made his much anticipated MLB debut this weekend, and showed the ace qualities the Diamondbacks love. In the process, he also beat out Clayton Kershaw, something the Diamondbacks have become accustomed to doing recently.
