A team's win-loss record early on during the season is not always the best indicator of how the team has performed, simply because it is such a small sample size to work with.
With that in mind, what follows is a breakdown of all 30 MLB teams so far this season, looking at three main areas:
- Offense: who has shined and who has struggled among the projected regulars, as well as a look at how the team has hit as a whole.
- Pitching: who has shined and who has struggled among the projected rotation and key relievers, as well as a look at how the team has pitched as a whole.
- Overall: a look at how the team has performed compared to expectations entering the season and its outlook moving forward.
All three areas were then graded, with a grade of "C" representing a team performing at league average in the case of offense and pitching or right around expectations in the case of overall performance.
