6. New York Mets (22-16) The Mets got a glimpse into the future this week, as Noah Syndergaard made his debut against the Cubs in the middle of the week and got his first victory of his career Sunday against the lowly Brewers. The Mets are treading water right now, as they suffered yet another injury to their lineup with Dilson Herrera breaking his finger. They have had extremely poor injury luck and need it to start turning around to sustain this strong start.

5. Detroit Tigers (23-15) The Tigers handled their business this week, taking a series from the surprisingly strong Twins, then taking two of three from the best team in baseball, the Cardinals, over the weekend. Miguel Cabrera is crushing the baseball, breaking the 400 home run plateau this week. With Ian Kinsler constantly on base ahead of him, Cabrera looks firmly in the race for the MVP once again, as the Tigers continue to battle it out with the Royals in the AL Central.

4. Kansas City Royals (24-14) This team just continues to roll. Their lineup is as deep as they come in the majors, and while their starting rotation lacks a big named starter, they do their job and then hand it off to one of the best bullpens in the majors. This team has no holes, as the top five players in their everyday lineup hits nearly .300 or higher, with Kendrys Morales coming in with the lowest at .299. They will have a two game series against the Reds before facing off in what will be a huge weekend series against the Cardinals.
