25. Cleveland Indians (4-7) Like the White Sox, the Indians had a short week playing only five games. Also like the White Sox, they went 2-3 as the weekend series didn’t go as well as they had hoped. They bounced back from an extra innings loss in Game 1 to take Game 2, but like the White Sox again were handled easily in Game 3. Trevor Bauer has been fun to watch on the mound thus far this season, but the Indians had a little scare with a ball hitting Carlos Carrasco in the face in the first game against the White Sox.

24. Texas Rangers (5-8) The Rangers fought hard this past week, but were ultimately beaten by teams that just have more talent than they do. The Los Angeles Angels and Seattle Mariners are also looking to get their seasons on track, and will take advantage of games they play against teams like the Rangers. Nick Martinez has been a revelation this season, throwing 12 scoreless innings to start the season, and Prince Fielder continues to hit the ball well at the plate.

23. Cincinnati Reds (5-7) That 4-0 start to the season already seems like a distant memory, as the Reds have managed to win only once since then. They are currently on a four game losing streak, and have lost seven of their last eight games. Homer Bailey came off the DL and had an underwhelming performance, allowing nine hits and three walks without a strikeout, surrendering five runs. Joey Votto has been outstanding at the plate thus far, slashing .364/.481/.727 as a bright spot.
