12. Atlanta Braves (22-21) The Braves continue to hover around .500 despite what looked like a clear indication of wanting to rebuild heading into the season. They looked ready to fall after last week, but rode a weekend sweep of the Marlins into this week and went 4-2. Shelby Miller continues to dazzle everytime he takes the mound, as he followed up his near no hitter with another quality start against the Brewers, extending his streak of allowing two or fewer earned runs to nine to start the season.

11. New York Mets (24-21) They managed to split a four-game series with the Cardinals but it was still a tough week for the Mets. They got destroyed by the Pirates over the weekend, getting outscored 21-4 as Matt Harvey had the worst start of his career and Jon Niese was shellacked for a third straight start. On top of that, David Wright has been shut down indefinitely as his back problems continue to persist. That’s bad news for a team who cannot find any offense right now.

10. Tampa Bay Rays (24-21) Even with only a.500 week, the Rays still managed to take over the top spot in the AL East as the Yankees have nosedived. This team continues to get it done with pitching, and as long as that continues they will be in it for the long run. Their bullpen has quickly become one of the strongest units in MLB, as Kevin Jepsen and Brad Boxberger have been joined by Jake McGee for a dominant trio at the end of games.
