9. Minnesota Twins (34-28) The Twins, like the Astros, have fallen into a little bit of a rut. They have yet to win a series in June, as they got swept by the Royals this past week and lost two of three to the Rangers, salvaging the series with a nice win Sunday afternoon. They will look to get a boost to get things back on track from top prospect Byron Buxton, who was promoted to the major leagues in time for Sunday’s game. He went hitless in his debut, but with the tools he possess it wouldn’t surprise anyone if he overtakes the centerfield job and finds himself at the top of the Twins lineup before long.

8. Toronto Blue Jays (34-30) Meet the hottest team currently in baseball; the Blue Jays. They have been dominating teams over their 11-game winning streak, as their pitching staff has picked things up and their offense continues to mash the baseball. During their winning streak, they have outscored teams 88-40 for an average margin of victory of 4.4 runs per game. There are teams that don’t score that per game, let alone win by that much for almost two weeks straight. Chris Colabello has just added to what was already an explosive offense, slashing .343/.382/.490 on the season to give the Blue Jays yet another weapon at their disposal.

7. Chicago Cubs (34-27) The Cubs did well to keep up with the most competitive division in baseball, as a 4-2 week helped the Cubbies keep up with the Pirates and Cardinals in a fierce NL Central race. They would do well to handle business against the AL Central this upcoming week, with series against the Indians and Twins as they have as difficult a finish to June as a team could have. Tsuyoshi Wada has been given a vote of confidence by manager Joe Madden, but his spot in the rotation cannot be too secure as he continued his streak of poor outings has now reached five to start the season.
