12. Texas Rangers (37-33) The Rangers had an awesome start to the week, taking three of four from the Dodgers, with their only loss coming off a walk-off balk by Keone Kela. Their offense fell a little short over the weekend though, as they lost two of three to the White Sox, both games coming as 3-2 defeats. Prince Fielder, Joey Gallo and the gang will have to get back on track quickly for this upcoming week, as the Rangers will face off with the first and third highest scoring teams in baseball in the Blue Jays and Athletics this week.

11. Minnesota Twins (37-32) The Twins success this week has come on the back of their pitching staff. This week showed that, as they split their interleague series with the Cardinals, as the teams combined to score nine and eight runs respectively. They lost two of three to the Cubs over the weekend though, as the pitching staff was unable to repeat the performance they had against the Cardinals, giving up 14 runs in three games to the Cubs. But, Tommy Milone has been strong since returning to the major league team, tossing 19 innings with only five earned runs. And Byron Buxton, who has struggled out of the gate, could see fellow top prospect Miguel Sano join him sooner than later.

10. San Francisco Giants (38-33) The Giants’ dominance over their rival Dodgers ended Sunday night, as their five-game winning streak was snapped. Tim Lineceum was only able to record four outs, the shortest outing of his career as a starter. Regardless, the Giants still picked up some games on the Dodgers, as they went 4-3 and now sit 1.5 games behind in the NL West. They have been able to overcome Hunter Pence’s second DL stint as Nori Aoki has continued his strong play atop the lineup and Matt Duffy running away with the job at third base.
