MLB Power Rankings
Sean Murphy is ready to go with his latest instalment of the MLB Power Rankings. Find out where all 30 teams stand entering the new week.
1. St. Louis Cardinals -203 Set back on their heels, the Cards managed to avoid a series sweep at the hands of the Royals on Sunday afternoon.
2. Kansas City Royals -201 The Royals might just be baseball’s most complete team, and have their sights set on top spot in the rankings.
3. Washington Nationals -197 This is where most expected the Nats to be nearly two months into the season. They simply took the scenic route.
4. Houston Astros -193 It’s time to give credit where credit is due as the Astros don’t appear to be heading south any time soon.
5. Detroit Tigers -188 Consistency hasn’t exactly been the Tigers calling card this season, but they’re getting it done nonetheless.
6. Los Angeles Dodgers -185 It’s been feast-or-famine for the Dodgers offense but the potential is there for a breakout week at the dish.
7. Tampa Bay Rays -181 Who could have predicted the Rays would be leading the A.L. East heading into the final week of May?
8. Chicago Cubs -178 Kris Bryant came in with lofty expectations but he’s certainly lived up to them so far.
9. San Francisco Giants -173 While I’m not completely sold on the Giants as a true N.L. contender inthe long-term, they’re doing their best to prove me wrong.
10. Los Angeles Angels -169 It’s been the Angels starting pitching that has led the charge this year, not their well-paid bats.
11. Minnesota Twins -163 Are the Twins the real deal? I’m not sure they can keep up a seven games over .500 pace over the long haul but they shouldn’t be dismissed as a fluke either.
12. New York Mets -159 More bad news on the David Wright front this past week but the Mets continue to chug along sporting a north of .500 record.
13. Seattle Mariners -155 I optimistic that the Mariners best days are ahead of them. Look for value backing Seattle in the coming weeks and months.
14. Baltimore Orioles -151 The slow climb back to .500 continues for the Orioles, who enter the new week sitting three games south of the mendoza line.
15. Cleveland Indians -149 Here come the Indians. Make it six straight wins and counting including a series sweep against the in-state rival Reds.
16. Pittsburgh Pirates -146 The Buccos are riding high after a sweep of the Mets and have an excellent shot at finishing the week with an above .500 record.
17. New York Yankees -141 New York’s cold streak continues. Nothing is working for the Bronx Bombers these days with no relief in sight.
18. San Diego Padres -137 All of that promise the Padres showed early in the campaign seems to have disappeared as San Diego’s offense has run dry.
19. Atlanta Braves -131 Just when it looks like it’s time to write off the Braves they push their way to eight wins in 12 games.
20. Chicago White Sox -125 It wasn’t a banner week for the White Sox but I still believe the potentialfor a turnaround is there.
21. Boston Red Sox -119 Are we witnessing the start of a resurgence in Beantown? Red Sox pitchers have stepped up, helping the team stay in the lukewarm A.L. East race.
22. Arizona Diamondbacks -114 The D’Backs are miles ahead of where they were one year ago, evenif that isn’t saying much.
23. Texas Rangers -109 You can lump the Rangers in the same category as the D’Backs as they’re leaps and bounds better than they were at this time last year.
24. Philadelphia Phillies -106 The Phillies aren’t about to contend for a division title any time soon but at least they suddenly look like they’re trying.
25. Toronto Blue Jays -102 It’s tough to be a Blue Jays fan these days as their injury woes continue. How long will John Gibbons last at the helm?
26. Cincinnati Reds 102 Have the Reds hit rock bottom yet? If not, they’re close following a sweep at the hands of the Tribe.
27. Colorado Rockies 106 Lost in the midst of another disappointing start is the fact that the Rockies have actually stayed relatively healthy this season.
28. Milwaukee Brewers 108 The Brew Crew will likely suffer their 30th loss of the season early this week, punctuating just how poorly things have gone in Milwaukee this season.
29. Miami Marlins 112 The Marlins take a nose-dive this week. Injuries have played a role but there are really no excuses for their continued poor play.
30. Oakland Athletics 114 The A’s earned the surprising designation as the first team to 30 losses thisseason.

Monster card coming on Tuesday featuring action from MLB, NHL, & NBA!
Tuesday MLB Free Play from Doc's Sports Take #903 Miami Marlins over Pittsburgh Pirates (Tuesday, 7:05pm EST) The Miami Marlins haven't been good since Dan Jennings stepped down from the front office to take over for former manager Mike Redmond. In fact, they are just 2-6 under Jennings and have lacked the fire that they played with last season. But tonight they get a shot in the arm in the form of youngster Jose Urena. The 23-year old right-hander has been dominating at Triple-A this season at 4-0 with a 1.21 ERA. He has a plus fastball in the 92-94 mph range and very good control for a youngster. This will be Urena's firs big league start, so the he should have the leg up on his opponent the Pittsburgh Pirates. The Pirates haven't been the same this season without Russell Martin, and it has shown in the numbers for the pitching staff. Nobody has missed Martin more than Tuesday's starter Jeff Locke. He posted a respectable 3.91 ERA last season, but comes in with a 5.28 ERA in eight starts in 2015. This line is a tad high so we'll take a shot with the Marlins and their young arm Urena.
