3. Detroit Tigers (13-6) The Tigers finished up their homestand this past weekend, and it went surprisingly poor. They lost at least one game in every series, most shockingly probably being the three of four they lost to the Yankees. Weather could have played into that, as it was snowing during multiple games against the Yankees and David Price had a horrible outing in the process. They visit the Royals next weekend, which could be the series of the week.

2. Kansas City Royals (12-6) Another week, another series that the Royals mix it up with their opponent. The Royals have been making headlines more for the skirmishes and brawls they are getting in than play on the field. They could start running into some problems because of the brawls, as they have multiple players facing suspensions. Yordano Ventura will miss at least one start, and Kelvin Herrera faces two suspensions; one for the altercation with Brett Lawrie and his role against the White Sox this week.

1. New York Mets (14-5) Owners of the best record in baseball, the Mets find themselves in the top spot of our rankings. They earned it, as they tied a franchise record with 11 consecutive wins prior to losing the Subway Series over the weekend. The Mets will look to start a new streak against a streaking Marlins team before hosting the Nationals for a four-game series this weekend. Top prospect Kevin Plawecki has shown flashes replacing the injured Travis d’Arnaud, but it is fair to ask how long the Mets can weather all of these early season injuries for.
