24. Colorado Rockies (30-39) The Rockies were able to take the last two games of their series against the Brewers, a big turnaround from the nine of 10 games they lost previously to that. The biggest problem was that their pitching staff was unable to contain anyone, as the Astros had a field day at the plate no matter if it was at their home field or Coors Field during their home-and-home series. If you thought the best ERA from a qualifying player for the Brewers was bad, he looks like a Cy Young candidate compared to the 5.95 ERA Kyle Kendrick is sporting, the best of any qualifying player on the staff.

23. Seattle Mariners (32-38) Could the Mariners finally be making their way back up the standings? They split with the Giants in their four-game series but took two of three from the Astros over the weekend. Taijuan Walker has looked more like the top prospect oozing potential the Mariners thought they had on their hands recently than the imposter that started the season, firing five straight quality starts. Mark Trumbo also showed a little bit of a pulse, launching his first home run with the Mariners in a victory over the Astros.

22. San Diego Padres (34-38) All the work last weekend to get back to .500 was undone this week, as the Padres struggled against the Athletics and Diamondbacks. James Shields suffered his first loss of the season, but Ian Kennedy and Tyson Ross delivered strong performances to pick up the only two victories for the Padres this week. But the loss of Wil Myers will definitely hurt, as he was placed on the DL again to have surgery on his wrist he previously injured to remove bone spurs. That is a big blow to the Padres offense just as Matt Kemp was showing signs of life at the plate.
