27. Chicago White Sox (32-42) It was another tough week for the White Sox, who lost series to the Twins and Tigers. The Tigers one was especially tough, as they blew a 4-0 lead they got on David Price. Those are the types of games that will haunt the White Sox as they try to get their season on track. They played the Tigers tough though, as they look close to turning a corner. Adam Eaton and Melky Cabrera continuing their hot streaks would help a lot, as the White Sox offense has been a major disappointment this season.

26. Colorado Rockies (33-42) The Rockies took the series from the Diamondbacks but lost two of three to the Giants over the weekend. Again the pitching was a problem, as they gave up at least four runs in every game this past week despite playing only one series at Coors Field. The fact they were able to win three games has a lot to do with their offense, specifically Nolan Arenado. He has staked his claim to being the best third baseman in baseball, as his outstanding glove is now beginning aided by a just as strong bat. He had three multi home run games this week alone, and now sits at 24 on the season. No one could have predicted a potential 40 home run season from Arenado this season, even with half of his games being played in the thin air of Coors Field.

25. Oakland Athletics (33-43) The Athletics were rolling, winning five consecutive games until they ran into the Royals and got swept. That sweep takes away a lot of momentum from the Athletics, who were creeping their way back into the AL West and AL Wild Card races. Trade rumors will again start popping up, as some veterans such as Ben Zobrist and Scott Kazmir could be on the move. They will need to put together another strong stretch of games to get themselves back into the race or those rumors will begin to get louder.
