15. Cincinnati Reds (12-13) A series victory over the hapless Brewers gave the Reds a winning week, as they split their four-game series with the Braves over the weekend. The Reds received some bad news this week though, as Homer Bailey will have to undergo Tommy John surgery, ending his season. Things have not gone well for the Reds and Bailey since he signed a six-year $105 million contract prior to last season.

14. Pittsburgh Pirates (12-13) The Pirates had a rough week, going 1-5. The series against the Cardinals was especially crushing, as each game was lost in extra innings. Gerrit Cole continues to perform like an ace though, as he got the only win this week for the Buccos, giving him a 4-0 record on the season. They are still waiting on Andrew McCutchen to get it going at the plate, as he is still hitting under .200 heading into the first full week of May.

13. Miami Marlins (12-13) Two series victories this week against NL East foes have the Marlins heading on the right track as they have won four consecutive series since being swept by the Mets. They could have returned the favor to the Mets to start this past week, but a Daniel Murphy home run in the ninth inning saved the Mets from a sweep. Dee Gordon has been what the Marlins had hoped for, and way more, as he is currently hitting .440. That is not a typo; on May 4th when games start we will have an everyday player hitting .440.
