6. Detroit Tigers (26-19) The Tigers have been playing ehh baseball recently, and it continued this week as they lost a series to the Brewers and split with the Astros. They still are one of the strongest teams in baseball, but just seem to be caught in a little bit of a rut. A west coast trip this week against the Athletics and Angels could be the thing to wake them back up, or will it continue their recent swoon?

5. Los Angeles Dodgers (26-17) The Dodgers got swept by the rival Giants to start the week, but salvaged things against the Padres taking two out of three. The deep sleep the offense went into is something to keep an eye on though, as they got shutout every game by the Giants, then scored only seven runs against the Padres. With the Braves and Cardinals on the docket this week, it may be tough for the Dodgers to get their offense going, but as long as Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw are still starting games scoring a ton of runs really isn’t needed.

4. Washington Nationals (26-18) The Nationals continue to run through teams. That, combined with the struggling Mets, have them 2.5 games ahead in the NL East and looking like they are ready to run away with it. Stephen Strasburg continues to struggle on the mound, which is really the only thing holding this team back from really taking off as everything else is truly clicking. Bryce Harper continues to mash at the plate, Drew Storen has been lights out in the bullpen, and Max Scherzer looks like a Cy Young candidate.
