15. Detroit Tigers (35-34) It was a bad week for the Tigers, as they continue to fall down our MLB Power Rankings and the MLB standings. They were able to bookends wins to start and finish the week, but in between it was just a lot more losing. Justin Verlander returned from the DL and the results have not been that good, as his ERA sits at 6.17 through two starts and he surrendered the 3,000th hit to Alex Rodriguez in his career. Expect the Tigers to be on the prowl to add some help to their pitching staff as the starting rotation could use some help behind David Price.

14. Toronto Blue Jays (37-34) The hottest team in baseball coming into last week was cooled off. Splitting the four-game series with the Mets was followed up by a slugfest series against the Orioles in which they lost two of three games. Getting more starts from Marco Estrada like the one he delivered in the series opener against the Orioles would be welcomed, as he had a no-hitter going into the seventh inning. As long as the pitching staff performs, this team will be trouble as the lineup is on another world compared to the rest in baseball thanks to unexpected contributions from players like Chris Colabello and Kevin Pillar.

13. Baltimore Orioles (36-33) Owners of the sixth best run differential in baseball, the Orioles are on the up and up. They had the pleasure of facing the Phillies in their home-and-home interleague series, and took advantage winning three of four, including the massacre when they hit eight home runs in a 19-4 blowout. They kept it going over the weekend, making sure the Blue Jays didn’t get on another lengthy win streak, taking two of three from them. This offense is extremely strong behind Manny Machado, and if the pitching staff continues to come around they will continue shooting up our rankings and the standings.
