27. Colorado Rockies (13-21) The Rockies were able to snap their 11-game losing streak, and get their first win of the month, against the Dodgers in their weekend series, actually splitting the four-game affair. Troy Tulowitzki was forced from Friday’s game with quad tightness, and didn’t come back at all during the weekend. He also made headlines regarding a trade, as he said he will not force his way out of Colorado, but it may be time they move on from him as the offense has been a major disappointment, ranking 28th currently in runs scored.

26. Arizona Diamondbacks (15-21) Not many teams suffered through a week as poor as the Diamondbacks, who got run over by the Nationals during the week and then got swept by the Phillies over the weekend. They’re scoring at a good clip, but the pitching staff is letting them down; only Chase Anderson has an ERA under 3.00 as a starter, and Addison Reed has been awful at the end of games, blowing as many games as he has saved.

25. Texas Rangers (16-22) The Rangers are climbing back into things a little bit as they are finally getting some production from players other than Prince Fielder. Shin-Soo Choo raised his batting average from .183 to .242 in the week, while Adrian Beltre launched his 400th career home run as well. The Rangers have huge holes in their pitching staff from injuries, but if they can get constant production from their veterans at the plate they could hang around in what looks like the worst division in baseball in the AL West.
