18. Arizona Diamondbacks (8-10) It was a short week for the Diamondbacks, and they have to be happy about that. After a split with the Rangers, they were swept at home by the Pirates, scoring only two runs in the series that was punctuated by a three-hit shutout in the series finale. This is probably what the Diamondbacks are, as they will hover around .500 but need some breaks to sustain any real success. A healthy Paul Goldschmidt will help, as he has carried the offense thus far; he is the only player with double-digit runs scored and RBI on the season and more than two home runs.

17. Baltimore Orioles (9-10) The Orioles salvaged a poor week over the weekend, winning in extra innings Saturday and dropping 18 runs on the Red Sox Sunday. The offense is not the problem here, as they still scored 20 runs in their losses, but gave up 38. Even in the wins they gave up a lot of runs, surrendering 11 in the Saturday and Sunday wins. Until they get things figured out on the bump, it will be a rocky road in Baltimore.

16. Los Angeles Angels (9-10) The Angels had a winning week going 4-3, but couldn’t get back over .500 since the first series of the year thanks to an extra inning loss to the Rangers on Sunday afternoon. Mike Trout has hit a little bit of a rough patch, as he saw his batting average drop 46 points this past week. While a drop like that is never a good thing, one positive that can taken away is that other players in the lineup are finally stepping up. One in particular is Kole Calhoun, who has seen his average rise 106 points over the same period of time.
