As we head into the middle of June, we are only six weeks away from the MLB Trade Deadline. We are beginning to get a clearer picture of which teams may be buyers and which ones may be sellers, even what buyers could be targeting on the market.

But, we still have some time until then, and if the MLB Power Rankings show anything this week, it is that things could change rather quickly. This week we have a team that shot up the rankings on the backs of the longest winning streak of the season by any team. We also see a team that made a pretty big trade last week still having the same problems as they are unable to get things going on their season.

Also, would it be a week in the MLB without major prospects making their debuts? Multiple teams called up their top rated prospects to try and jump start their teams. Will that be enough as we head into the summer, or will more moves need to be made by those teams.

We will have to see and find out as the games play out throughout the remainder of June and throughout July. Until then though, take in our MLB Power Rankings as we head into Week 11 of the season.

More from New York Mets

30. Philadelphia Phillies (22-42) The Phillies are bringing up the rear in the Empire Writes Back MLB Power Rankings, and it is a place they look like they could occupy for quite a while. The offense is abysmal, and haven’t been able to pick up the the pitching staff very often. When you hold the Pirates scoreless for double-digit innings multiple games you expect to win, but instead the Phillies lost both games as they were unable to score as well. Chase Utley is still batting .184 on the season, and there should be serious talks of removing him from the three-hole in the lineup as he is giving the Phillies nothing.

29. Milwaukee Brewers (24-40) The Brewers had tough matchups this week, but played good baseball. They took two of three from the Pirates before splitting a four-game series with the Nationals over the weekend. They have another tough week ahead, as their four game home and home series will be against the Royals, and then they visit the Rockies. Do they have another week of surprises in them? They could start shopping their veterans soon, as Francisco Rodriguez and Aramis Ramirez have already garnered some attention according to sources and rumors.

28. Boston Red Sox (27-37) The Red Sox are struggling mightily right now. They have the third worst run differential in the major leagues at -60 as their lineup just hasn’t produced the way they had hoped. Unfortunately, the pitching staff has, and they are struggling as much, if not more, than people had expected them to. They are currently riding an MLB worst losing streak of six games, tying them with the lowly Phillies for that honor. Rookie Eduardo Rodriguez also received a rude awakening after three strong starts to his career, getting blasted by the Blue Jays Sunday, giving up nine runs in only 4 ⅔ innings pitched.
