After reclaiming the top spot last week, the San Francisco Giants had plenty of competition for No. 1 this week, with the Toronto Blue Jays and Oakland Athletics both proving they belong in the conversation for the best team in baseball heading into June.
Meanwhile, two teams at the bottom of last week's rankings, the Houston Astros (No. 29) and Boston Red Sox (No. 28), went a combined 12-2 last week, shaking things up in the cellar.
When putting together these rankings on a weekly basis, the following factors are considered:
- Previous week's record
- Quality of opponents
- Key injuries/trades
- Recent performance beyond the last week
As we enter the month of June, we have passed the one-third mark of the 2014 MLB season. There is still a ton of baseball to be played, though, and a good portion of the league continues to hover around the .500 mark.
All that said, here is an updated look at where all 30 MLB teams currently stand. Be sure to check back here every Monday morning for the most recent edition of our MLB power rankings.
