18. Cleveland Indians (20-23) The Indians are the hottest team in baseball, as they enter this week on a six-game winning streak, taking three of four from the White Sox then sweeping the Reds. Just last week, the upcoming slate of games against the Rangers and Mariners looked to be snoozers, but with all three teams turning it around, this will be an important week for the Indians as they try to get back into the playoff picture. They cannot afford to wait much longer as the Tigers and Royals continue to be the class of the AL.

17. Texas Rangers (21-23) After being labeled the worst team in baseball by us mere weeks ago, the Rangers have quickly proved us wrong. They got off to an outstanding start on their road trip, taking two of three from the Red Sox and sweeping the Yankees over the weekend, riding a five-game winning streak. They got a little bit of everything during the week, as the pitching staff showed off against the Red Sox then the line up lit up the Yankees. Can they finish off the road trip strong against the Indians, another team riding high?

16. Arizona Diamondbacks (21-22) They still only have one starting pitcher with an ERA under 4.00 in Chase Anderson, yet find themselves right at the .500 because of their offense coming around. Paul Goldschmidt still looks every bit an MVP candidate and Yosmany Tomas has yet to really be phased by major league pitching in his first stay in the big leagues. A road trip through the NL Central with stops against the Cardinals and Brewers is on tap for the D-Backs this week coming up.
