The final month of the 2014 MLB season is here, and there is still an awful lot to be sorted out between now and the start of the postseason.
Entering play Monday, a total of 16 teams boast a winning record, and all of them sit five or fewer games from a playoff spot.
That should make for a fantastic September, and there will no doubt be at least a few more major shakeups in these rankings in the weeks to come.
When putting together these rankings on a weekly basis, the following factors are considered:
- Previous week's record
- Recent performance beyond the last week
- Quality of opponents
- Key injuries/trades
With that in mind, here is an updated look at where all 30 MLB teams stand as we enter September. Be sure to check back here every Monday morning for the most recent edition of our MLB power rankings.
