15. Toronto Blue Jays (9-10) It was a Jekyll and Hyde week for the Blue Jays, who started things off by sweeping the Orioles in relatively easy fashion, then going down to the Rays in three straight the same way. There is some concern over the shoulder of Jose Bautista, who may need a DL visit after missing the last four games. Devon Travis continues to put a stranglehold on the AL Rookie of the Year award, picking up all the slack Bautista is leaving behind.

14. Atlanta Braves (9-9) The Braves came back to earth with a thud this week. They were swept by the Mets to start the week, then lost two of three to the Phillies over the weekend. They have a full week ahead of them, playing each day in the week and could get blitzed as they face desperate teams in the Nationals and Reds looking to turn around slow starts. Jason Grilli continues to turn the clock back at the end of games though, as he has converted all seven of his save chances to go with a 1.29 ERA.

13. Colorado Rockies (10-8) A five-game skid looked like the Rockies were heading back to their regular spot in the standings, but they were able to steady themselves winning three in a row after. Sunday afternoon’s game with the Giants was rained out, but that could be a blessing in disguise for the Rockies; any rest day is a good day for them, as they will only go as far as the injury prone Troy Tulowitzki will take them. Can the stronger than usual pitching performances continue? That is the main concern, as the Rockies will always hit.
