It was a strange week around MLB, and while there is a new No. 1 team in this week's power rankings, not many teams made big moves in either direction.
The Pittsburgh Pirates and Kansas City Royals were the only two teams to win both series they played last week, and by that same token, only the San Francisco Giants, Arizona Diamondbacks and San Diego Padres lost both series they played.
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 push ever closer to the summer months and the July trade season, teams will look to distinguish themselves as buyers or sellers over the next couple of weeks. However, with so many teams hovering around .500, the list of sellers could wind up being a short one.
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.
