MLB Power Rankings: Week 3


Three weeks into the season, and teams are starting to emerge as we approach the one month mark. Last week, it was the New York Yankees that overcame a slow start to hit a hot streak. This week, it is the Washington Nationals that enter Heavy's power rankings after a slower than expected start. The Nationals enter this week on a six-game winning streak. The Yankees continue to play well as their winning streak extended to eight before the White Sox handed them a loss. New York has gone 8-2 in their last ten games. The Baltimore Orioles continue to be as steady as they come and have been the most consistent team in baseball to start the season. The Orioles are 7-3 over their last ten games. On the players side, Bryce Harper is off to a red-hot start. Harper is hitting .393 with seven home runs and a league-leading 20 RBI. The Brewers Eric Thames is leading the league in home runs with eight. Boston's Chris Sale has had an incredible start and is tops in the majors with 42 strikeouts to go along with his 0.91 ERA. The Twins' Ervin Santana continues to be one of the most surprising stories in the MLB to start the season. Sanatana sits at 3-0 with a 0.64 ERA. The Rockies Greg Holland has converted every save opportunity he has had this season and leads the league with nine saves. A couple of notes about the rankings. The standings and stats referenced throughout our rankings are as of Saturday, April 22. Click the arrow on the right side of the middle of the page to see Heavy's latest MLB power rankings.
