27. Colorado Rockies (11-17) Two games to start the week were postponed because of weather, another was called in the sixth inning and a third was postponed because there was six inches of snow. The Rockies wish they had just postponed the whole week, as their losing streak reached nine games. The offense was a little flat this week, but with how poor the pitching staff is performing it would even be hard for an offense clicking on all cylinders to pick up wins.

26. Cleveland Indians (11-19) A rough week for the Indians, who lost series to the Royals and Twins. They aren’t playing very good baseball right now, as they are struggling on the mound. Trevor Bauer has come back to earth, giving up at least three earned runs in three consecutive starts, raising his ERA to 4.19.

25. Texas Rangers (13-18) The Rangers were in the cellar of our Power Rankings last week and must not have taken kindly to it, sweeping the Astros to start the week and splitting a four-game weekend series with the Rays. The pitching staff has been solid, but they need to find production from someone other than Prince Fielder in the lineup. Kyle Blanks has done that thus far since being called up.
