21. Cleveland Indians (29-33) The Indians have lost their last three series as their offense has essentially disappeared in recent games. They are hoping the call-up of their own top prospect, Francisco Lindor, will help jumpstart them like many of the other top prospects that have been called up this season. Corey Kluber had a tough week as well, losing both his starts as the reigning Cy Young award winner hasn’t been performing as well as he was last season, and the offense hasn’t been able to pick him up much either.

20. Cincinnati Reds (28-34) The Reds aren’t in a horrible position record wise, but direction wise they have a big decision to make. Facing a steep uphill climb with the division they are in, do they wait it out with some of their veterans hoping to get things going, or start to sell and rebuild? Scouts for other teams have been watching Johnny Cueto starts, while Todd Frazier and Aroldis Chapman have also had their names pop up in rumors. While they were able to sweep the lowly Phillies, they dropped three of four to the Cubs showing they are further away than maybe they think. We could see a much different lineup for the Reds in coming weeks, as they have plenty of attractive players teams with playoff aspirations would love to get their hands on.

19. San Diego Padres (32-33) The Padres had a tough week. Justin Upton, Melvin Upton and Craig Kimbrel made their returns to Atlanta, but it didn’t go well as the Braves won two of three games. They then played the Dodgers tough over the weekend, but still lost two of three games as the offense couldn’t get anything going. Kimbrel though has gotten things on track, as he has gone 10 straight appearances without allowing a run, striking out 14 batters over that span of 9 ⅓ innings pitched.
