MLB Power Rankings: Week 2


Consider this Easter edition of Heavy's MLB power rankings part of your Easter basket, and it's only full of the good kind of candy. The first two weeks of the baseball season have proven results can vary greatly from one week to the next. Teams like the Twins and Diamondbacks have cooled off a bit since their red-hot starts. Meanwhile, a pair of New York teams are moving up the standings after slow starts for both clubs. The Yankees enter this week as the hottest team in the MLB with a six-game win streak. Other teams have not been as fortunate and continue to stay at the bottom of the standings. The Toronto Blue Jays, St. Louis Cardinals, Seattle Mariners and San Francisco Giants are all last in their divisions despite high preseason expectations. The Baltimore Orioles continue to stay steady as they sit in front in the AL East. No team has emerged as far and away the best team in baseball over the first two weeks of the season. Most divisions feature a number of teams bunched together at the six to eight win mark as the third week of the season begins.


What players are off to hot starts? The A's Kris Davis, Astros' George Springer and the Mets' Yoenis Cespedes are in a three-way tie with a league-leading six home runs. The Marlins' Marcell Ozuna leads the league in RBI with 16. Twins pitcher Ervin Santana has been one of the pleasant surprises of the season as he is tied with the Giants' Johnny Cueto with three wins. Sanatana pitched a one-hit complete game in his last game proving his first two outings were no fluke. The Red Sox's Chris Sale has a league best 29 strikeouts in his first three starts. Madison Bumgarner and Carlos Martinez are next in line with 24 K's. A couple notes about the power rankings. All statistics listed are based on the first two weeks of the season.
