15. Detroit Tigers (39-36) The Tigers are extremely lucky to still be over .500 heading into Week 13, as they needed a huge comeback and two home runs from James McCann Sunday to win in comeback fashion and barely got past the White Sox on Friday. The Tigers may have to get on the trade market to find some help behind David Price, as he is their only source of consistent production on the mound right now. Getting more production outside of Miguel Cabrera and Yoenis Cespedes in run producing spots in the lineup would help as well as they are essentially carrying the offense right now.

14. New York Mets (40-37) If the Mets played all of their games at Citi Field, they would be the best team in baseball. Unfortunately, they have to play half of their games on the road, where they are as poor as they are strong at home. They were able to snap their seven-game losing streak this past week, all of which came on the road. But now they are riding a four-game winning streak, as they took the series finale from the Brewers and then swept the Reds over the weekend. Curtis Granderson has heated up at the plate to lead the offense, along with phenom Steven Matz, who had one of the greatest debuts on the mound and at the plate in the history of baseball.

13. Chicago Cubs (39-34) The Cubs have hit a little bit of a skid, as their offense has been nonexistent recently. Part of the swoon is because of the struggles Kris Bryant is having at the plate. The phenom third baseman is in the midst of his first real drought at the major league level, as he is four for his last 30 at the plate. They are currently riding an MLB worst four-game losing streak, and that is a big reason why. They have an important series to start the week as well, as they will travel to take on the Mets, a team that they should be competing with all summer for an NL Wild Card spot.
