The ScoreMLB Power Rankings: New York teams go opposite ways

Welcome to the fifth edition of theScore's MLB Power Rankings for the 2024 regular season. The last edition was published May 13. 1. Philadelphia Phillies Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 38-16 7-3 +93 2 (+1) The Phillies secured a franchise-best start through 50 games and have shown no signs of slowing down. Bryce Harper's continued his torrid May, but the team's most surprising contributor's been shortstop Edmundo Sosa. He's hitting .364/.417/.758 with seven extra-base hits over his last 11 games filling in for Trea Turner.2. New York Yankees Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 37-18 7-3 +92 4 (+2) Aaron Judge is a man on a mission. The 2022 AL MVP registered 11 home runs, 12 doubles, and a 1.443 OPS in May. The Yankees have hit an MLB-leading 42 homers this month - nine more than the next-highest team - and lead the majors in OPS on the season.3. Baltimore Orioles Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 33-18 6-4 +61 3 (-) The Orioles haven't looked as dominant of late, but the starting rotation is rounding into form with the returns of Grayson Rodriguez (3.20 ERA) and Kyle Bradish (1.75). Losing John Means to another injury hurts, but those two, along with Corbin Burnes (2.60), should provide enough pitching to win a lot of games.4. Los Angeles Dodgers Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 33-22 4-6 +69 1 (-3) After beginning the month with seven straight wins, the Dodgers are in a funk. Los Angeles dropped consecutive series to teams with losing records and is in the midst of a five-game winless streak. Tyler Glasnow's last two starts have been messy (10 IP, 7 ER), and Andy Pages hit a rookie wall, going 6-for-50 (.120) with 20 strikeouts over his last 13 games.5. Cleveland Guardians Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 36-17 9-1 +73 10 (+5) Jos Ram rez continues to get it done year after year. He's been one of the catalysts in Cleveland's resurgence after a disappointing 2023. Ram rez has 10 home runs and an 1.009 OPS in May after hitting four homers with a .736 OPS in April. The three-time MVP finalist looks primed to be firmly in that conversation once again.6. Atlanta Braves Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 30-20 4-6 +47 5 (-1) The Braves have already dealt with a number of injuries, and the news got even worse Sunday when it was revealed Ronald Acu a Jr. suffered a torn ACL in his left knee. It's the second time in four seasons he's undergone season-ending knee surgery. Atlanta already lost ace Spencer Strider to a torn UCL last month. Few clubs are as deep as the Braves, but these are devastating injuries for a team trying to win a World Series.7. Kansas City Royals Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 34-20 8-2 +79 8 (+1) Cole Ragans has dominated following a rare blow-up start against the Angels on May 12. The left-hander's thrown 13 shutout innings, allowing just three hits with 19 strikeouts over his last two starts. Ragans ranks third in the AL with 76 strikeouts.8. Milwaukee Brewers Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 30-22 5-5 +45 6 (-2) William Contreras is carrying the Brewers and continues to make an early case for NL MVP. He sits third in the NL in fWAR behind Shohei Ohtani and Mookie Betts while ranking first among major-league catchers in runs, RBIs, batting average, on-base percentage, slugging, and OPS.9. San Diego Padres Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 28-28 6-4 +8 13 (+4) Xander Bogaerts is out indefinitely with a fractured shoulder after hitting just .219 with a .581 OPS in 187 at-bats, and Manny Machado owns a .653 OPS. Still, the Padres are staying afloat thanks to contributions from some of their depth players. Jurickson Profar, who signed a one-year, $1-million deal in mid-February, is hitting .344/.432/.510 with four home runs and 14 RBIs over the last month.10. Minnesota Twins Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 28-24 4-6 +4 7 (-3) The Twins' feast-or-famine offense dried up considerably over the team's seven-game losing streak in which it was outscored 45-12 by the Yankees, Guardians, and Nationals. Edouard Julien is among the biggest culprits, as he's posted a .338 OPS with one extra-base hit over his last 12 games.11. Seattle Mariners Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 28-26 4-6 -7 12 (+1) The Mariners are clinging onto top spot in an underperforming AL West. Seattle's dropped four of five and is the only division leader with a losing record on the road. The pitching hasn't looked as strong in May. The Mariners' 4.59 ERA ranks 27th in the majors, while their 166 strikeouts sits 26th. Bryce Miller's been particularly shaky, going 0-3 with a 5.79 ERA and six home runs allowed this month.12. Chicago Cubs Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 27-26 3-7 -3 11 (-1) Seiya Suzuki's and Cody Bellinger's returns from the IL have done little to spark the club. Suzuki's hitting .185/.237/.259 over his last 13 games, while Bellinger's .211/.274/.281 slash line over 14 games isn't much better. Kyle Hendricks' demotion to the bullpen isn't ideal. He owns a 10.47 ERA on the season despite being the team's second-highest paid pitcher.13. Boston Red Sox Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 27-26 5-5 +32 14 (+1) Boston's dominant starting pitching staff is showing signs of regression. After posting an MLB-best 2.00 ERA in April, the Red Sox rotation owns a 4.16 ERA in May. Home runs have become an issue, with the club posting the fourth-worst HR/9 (1.44) in the majors this month. Kutter Crawford's allowed four homers over his last 29 innings after not allowing one over 33 1/3 innings in April.14. San Francisco Giants Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 27-27 8-2 -19 23 (+9) The Giants became the second team since 1900 to erase three straight four-run deficits on the road after they shocked the Mets on Friday. Matt Chapman sealed Friday's win with an exceptional defensive play and slugged three home runs over his last six to rebound from a slow start. San Francisco's won five of its last six series. 15. Arizona Diamondbacks Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 25-28 5-5 +3 15 (-) The D-Backs' offense was supposed to be a strength, but it's really struggled of late. Arizona ranks 26th in OPS and runs this month. Ketel Marte (.740) is the only qualified player with an OPS over .700 in May, while Corbin Carroll, Lourdes Gurriel Jr., and Eugenio Su rez have combined for three homers in their last 242 at-bats.16. Texas Rangers Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 25-29 3-7 -6 9 (-7) The Rangers' World Series hangover is starting to feel Texas-sized as the losses and injuries continue to pile up. However, better days should be ahead with Corey Seager rediscovering his power stroke. He's slugged six home runs in his last six games, raising his season-long OPS to .796 after a disappointing April.17. St. Louis Cardinals Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 25-26 8-2 -41 27 (+10) Paul Goldschmidt might finally be snapping out of it. He's hitting .308/.357/.596 with four home runs over his last 12 games after hitting .190/.277/.254 with two home runs over his previous 37. The Cardinals still aren't getting great starting pitching, but they've won four straight series against the Angels, Red Sox, Orioles, and Cubs.18. Detroit Tigers Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 26-27 5-5 0 18 (-) Reese Olson's been a tremendous surprise. The right-hander owns the seventh-best ERA (1.92) in the majors and has given up just one home run in 56 1/3 innings. As bad as Javier B ez has been this season (.506 OPS), he's at least delivered in the clutch. He's hitting .405 with a .985 OPS with runners in scoring position and ranks tied for second on the team with 23 RBIs.19. Houston Astros Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 24-29 6-4 -4 25 (+6) Josh Hader is finally looking like the player who earned five All-Star appearances. The 30-year-old owns a 0.96 ERA with 14 strikeouts across his last seven outings. His return to form's coincided with the Astros going on a run up the standings after a dreadful start to the season. They're within striking distance of top spot in the AL West.20. Tampa Bay Rays Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 26-28 4-6 -47 17 (-3) The Rays appeared to be putting things together before losing six in a row. With the team struggling to find consistency at the plate, Josh Lowe being sidelined with another injury won't help, nor will Randy Arozarena hitting .156/.253./.313 on the season.21. Pittsburgh Pirates Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 25-29 6-4 -29 21 (-) Paul Skenes has made a huge difference, with the Pirates playing winning baseball since his arrival. Andrew McCutchen's posted a .900 OPS in his last 13 games, while Bryan Reynolds and Nick Gonzales have been difference-makers, combining for five homers and 23 RBIs over the past two weeks.22. Toronto Blue Jays Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 23-29 4-6 -38 19 (-3) Not even the home run jacket's been able to turn this team around. The Blue Jays rank 16th in runs and 23rd in homers this month - and that's actually an improvement over April. George Springer's been dropped in the order, and his .537 OPS ranks third-worst in MLB among 156 qualified players. Justin Turner, the club's biggest offensive offseason addition, is 6-for-59 (.102) in May.23. Cincinnati Reds Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 23-30 5-5 -3 20 (-3) Cincinnati entered Sunday with 10 regulars on the IL, two of whom suffered hand or wrist fractures after being hit by pitches. Manager David Bell recently lost his cool, tossing a chair around his team s dugout after Jake Fraley was pegged in the hand by a pitch. The fiery moment may have injected some life into the Reds, who swept the juggernaut Dodgers at home this past weekend.24. New York Mets Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 22-30 3-7 -24 16 (-8) The Mets were finally on the right side of a late-game comeback in Sunday's win over the Giants. Unfortunately, not much else has gone right in Queens of late. Star closer Edwin D az's been a shell of himself after missing the 2023 season, having blown four save opportunities this month. Sound the alarms, not the trumpets.25. Washington Nationals Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 23-28 3-7 -18 22 (-3) The Nationals entered May playing close to .500 but have been inconsistent. Washington has just two series wins this month and has gotten little production outside of Eddie Rosario and Ildemaro Vargas. Joey Gallo might not keep a roster spot for much longer thanks to a career-worst .305 slugging percentage, with four homers and 55 strikeouts in 32 games.26. Los Angeles Angels Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 20-33 5-5 -36 26 (-) The Angels may have stumbled onto a potential building block in the rotation: Jos Soriano. The right-hander owns an impressive sinker that can touch 100 mph with a lot of movement. Soriano has a 2.73 ERA with 28 strikeouts and a .200 opponent's batting average across his last five starts. If Soriano can iron out some issues with his command, he could develop into a frontline starter.27. Miami Marlins Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 19-35 7-3 -78 30 (+3) Jes s Luzardo returned from a three-week IL stint looking like his usual self. The left-hander hasn't allowed a run over his last two starts, striking out 11 in 14 innings with zero walks. Luzardo has two more years of team control after this season and could be the most in-demand starting pitcher on the market.28. Oakland Athletics Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 22-33 3-7 -63 24 (-4) Brent Rooker is putting together an even better season than his 30-homer breakout campaign in 2023. Rooker, who could be a solid trade target, sits ninth in MLB with a .933 OPS and has already hit 11 home runs. The 29-year-old isn't arbitration-eligible until next season.29. Colorado Rockies Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 18-34 4-6 -74 29 (-) The Rockies have been playing marginally better baseball thanks to substantially better starting pitching. Austin Gomber lowered his ERA to 2.76 after recording four straight quality starts in May, while Cal Quantrill's also been sharp (3.59 ERA). 30. Chicago White Sox Record Last 10 RD Previous rank 15-39 1-9 -116 28 (-2) The White Sox have tumbled back to the basement of the rankings after another dismal stretch. Positives are few and far between, but the in-season signing of Tommy Pham has paid dividends. The veteran outfielder is hitting .315/.361/.459 with three home runs and seven doubles in 28 games.

The ScoreMLB Power Rankings: Twins sizzling, Reds reeling

Welcome to the fourth edition of theScore's MLB Power Rankings for the 2024 regular season. The last edition was published April 29. 1. Los Angeles Dodgers Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 27-15 8-2 +74 2 (+1) This Dodgers offense is simply on another level. Their 220 runs scored are seven ahead of the second-place Phillies, and all six of their qualified position players have an OPS above .800 (seven if you count rookie Andy Pages). The pitching's also been great despite another rash of injuries to their staff. To put it simply, the Dodgers are exactly who we thought they were.2. Philadelphia Phillies Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 28-13 8-2 +62 5 (+3) The Phillies picked up right where they left off after winning 19 games in April, going 8-2 to begin this month. Bryce Harper's been a beast, slugging .647 with three homers, 11 RBIs, and nine runs scored in May, while Bryson Stott (1.158 OPS in his past eight games) has turned things around after a tough start. The rotation's been ridiculous, with Ranger Su rez (1.50 ERA) and Zack Wheeler (2.53 ERA) looking like early Cy Young front-runners.3. Baltimore Orioles Scott Taetsch / Getty Images Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 26-13 7-3 +49 4 (+1) The Orioles boast one of baseball's most well-rounded offenses. Gunnar Henderson is tied for second in MLB with 12 home runs, Adley Rutschman has a 131 OPS+, and both Jordan Westburg and Colton Cowser look like major pieces to the puzzle moving forward. This team's only question mark is closer Craig Kimbrel - he's had several rough outings in May (6.75 ERA in four innings).4. New York Yankees Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 27-15 7-3 +54 3 (-1) It's a dogfight between the Yankees and Orioles atop the AL East, and two of New York's biggest pups are turning it on. Aaron Judge and Anthony Rizzo rank first and second in team OPS to begin the month after combining for five homers, 14 RBIs, and 18 hits through 10 games. When factoring in Juan Soto in the heart of the order, it's no wonder the Bronx Bombers are the second-highest scoring team in the AL.5. Atlanta Braves Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 24-13 5-5 +45 1 (-4) With the exception of Marcell Ozuna, the Braves' vaunted offense isn't quite out of its early-season sputter. But you'd be foolish to count them out. Brilliant pitching, led by Max Fried's return to form, has kept things steady, and the staff nearly threw a combined no-hitter against the Mets. This team will be fine.6. Milwaukee Brewers Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 24-16 5-5 +35 6 (-) Milwaukee's bats, which have long been their undoing, are finally clicking. The Brewers have scored 203 runs and own the third-most fWAR (8.7) in baseball, behind only the Dodgers. As a result, they head into a crucial week sitting a half-game ahead of the Cubs in the NL Central, a place few expected this Brewers team would be in mid-May.7. Minnesota Twins Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 24-16 7-3 +27 17 (+10) While the Twins' summer sausage is making the headlines, the real story of this team is catcher Ryan Jeffers. He's slugged nine homers, driven in 30 runs, and posted a .292/.371/.617 slash line. His efforts, combined with the return of Carlos Correa and Max Kepler, have turned the Twins' lineup into a buzzsaw for opposing pitchers.8. Kansas City Royals Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 25-17 6-4 +49 8 (-) Seth Lugo might be the best signing of the offseason. The 34-year-old, who inked a two-year, $30-million deal in December, owns an AL-best 1.66 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 48 strikeouts in 59 2/3 innings. Meanwhile, Vinnie Pasquantino is starting to help out Bobby Witt Jr. on the offensive side, with seven extra-base hits and a .992 OPS this month.9. Texas Rangers Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 22-20 5-5 +20 9 (-) The Rangers are 6-6 in May with a rotation ravaged by injuries. Dane Dunning, Nathan Eovaldi, and Cody Bradford hit the injured list, while Max Scherzer is now dealing with a nerve issue amid his recovery from offseason back surgery. Marcus Semien's kept the team afloat with his bat, recording a hit in 10 of 12 games this month. Texas just needs to get healthy.10. Cleveland Guardians Steph Chambers / Getty Images Sport / Getty Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 25-16 5-5 +42 7 (-3) The Guardians' lineup took a big hit with Steven Kwan out four weeks due to a hamstring strain. The 26-year-old was slashing .353/.407/.496 with a team-leading 1.9 fWAR before the injury. Luckily, Triston McKenzie is pitching much better after a slow start. The right-hander owns a 2.28 ERA and 30 strikeouts over his last five starts (27 2/3 innings). 11. Chicago Cubs Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 24-17 5-5 +18 10 (-1) The Cubs persevered through injuries to Cody Bellinger and Seiya Suzuki on the strength of their pitching. It hasn't just been Shota Imanaga, either. Javier Assad (1.70 ERA) and Jameson Taillon (1.13 ERA) have also been great, giving the team a formidable trio atop its rotation. Christopher Morel's really turned it on in May, hitting .235/.342/.588 with four homers in 10 games after slashing .215/.292/.374 with four home runs in 29 games in March/April.12. Seattle Mariners Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 22-19 5-5 +6 13 (+1) The Mariners are atop the AL West by a half-game almost entirely thanks to their brilliant starting pitchers. Despite scoring 17 runs against Oakland over the weekend, their offense continues to sputter, with star Julio Rodr guez (.633 OPS) leading the way in that regard. The Mariners are facing the Royals, Orioles, and Yankees over the next 11 days and need Rodr guez to start hitting if they're to survive this stretch with that division lead intact.13. San Diego Padres Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 22-21 7-3 +16 18 (+5) The addition of Luis Arraez seems to have lit a spark under the Padres. San Diego's won five of eight since his arrival, including a series win over the rival Dodgers on the weekend. Great pitching has also helped, of course, with Dylan Cease (7 IP, 0 ER, 12 K) and Yu Darvish (7 IP, 0 ER, 7 K) both turning in recent gems. 14. Boston Red Sox Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 21-19 4-6 +33 12 (-2) The impact of numerous injuries to position players is starting to be felt, as the offense has really struggled in recent weeks. The Red Sox scored two or fewer runs in six of their last nine games and have hit an MLB-worst three home runs over the last two weeks (12 games). Tyler O'Neill's really struggled in May, hitting .143/.250/.286 with 18 strikeouts and no home runs in 10 games.15. Arizona Diamondbacks Thearon W. Henderson / Getty Images Sport / Getty Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 19-22 5-5 +17 14 (-1) We're all just waiting for Corbin Carroll to snap out of this funk. He's hitting .201/.287/.266 with two home runs on the season, a far cry from the all-around excellent numbers he put up during his 2023 NL Rookie of the Year campaign. The Diamondbacks need their young star to rediscover his form (and fast) if they want to avoid falling into an even deeper hole in the NL West.16. New York Mets Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 19-20 4-6 +1 15 (-1) It's been a rough start to May for Mets pitching. Jose Quintana owns a 14.09 ERA, Adrian Houser was moved to the bullpen, and the rotation as a whole combined for a 5.68 ERA, which ranks 28th in the majors. Brandon Nimmo's kept the team afloat on offense, but he was injured over the weekend, putting additional pressure on Francisco Lindor, Pete Alonso, and J.D. Martinez to produce.17. Tampa Bay Rays Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 20-21 6-4 -32 22 (+5) The Rays are hovering around .500 and have a winning record this month despite a revolving door of injured players. Tampa Bay would be absolutely lost without Isaac Paredes, who continues to look like an All-Star, while Randy Arozarena (.618 SLG in May) and Yandy Diaz (.333 AVG in his last 10 games) are turning corners.18. Detroit Tigers Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 20-20 3-7 +3 16 (-2) Kerry Carpenter's found his stroke, slugging .696 with five extra-base hits in his last eight games. The Tigers are going to need him and Riley Greene to pick up the slack with Spencer Torkelson, Mark Canha, and Javier B ez struggling at the dish. Baez has three hits in 30 at-bats this month and hasn't homered since April 18.19. Toronto Blue Jays Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 18-22 3-7 -47 19 (-) Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is showing signs of his previous All-Star self. The first baseman is hammering the ball and enjoyed a 10-for-20 stretch over his last five games. The only problem is that none of those hits were for extra bases. As the Blue Jays continue to tinker with a lineup that's scored the third-fewest runs in the majors, the pitching staff is springing leaks and has posted a 5.65 ERA in May, which is only better than the Marlins.20. Cincinnati Reds Dylan Buell / Getty Images Sport / Getty Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 17-23 1-9 -5 11 (-9) The Reds saw the biggest drop in the rankings following an eight-game losing streak. Cincinnati's bats went ice cold, scoring a combined 17 runs with a .279 slugging percentage. But Elly De La Cruz continues to put up video-game numbers. He's collected seven more steals in May to give him a whopping 25 through 39 games.21. Pittsburgh Pirates Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 18-23 4-6 -27 21 (-) Paul Skenes has arrived. Baseball's top-ranked pitching prospect showed signs of what makes him so special with seven strikeouts in his debut Saturday against the Chicago Cubs, impressing with a fastball that routinely exceeded 100 mph. He and fellow rookie flamethrower Jared Jones should form one of baseball's most exciting pitching duos for this fun-but-flawed Pirates team.22. Washington Nationals Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 19-20 5-5 -7 25 (+3) The Nationals have given good teams trouble in May and had a hard-fought series split against the Baltimore Orioles. A driving force behind their recent success has been Luis Garc a Jr., who's emerged as another dynamic threat alongside CJ Abrams. He's slashing .303/.378/.576 with two home runs and a team-leading nine RBIs in May.23. San Francisco Giants Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 19-23 4-6 -39 20 (-3) Logan Webb summed up the Giants' play in May as "dogshit" after the club went 3-7 to begin the month. The slumping Reds also ended their prolonged losing skid with a win against San Francisco. The club's lineup was supposed to take a step forward with the high-profile additions of Jung Hoo Lee, Matt Chapman, and Jorge Soler. However, the trio's combined for 0.3 fWAR, and Lee is now out with a dislocated shoulder.24. Oakland Athletics Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 19-23 4-6 -32 26 (+2) No, there's not going to be a Major League-esque run in Oakland, so let's just applaud what the A's have done so far. A team written off for dead and playing out the string before relocating to a temporary home is only 3.5 games out of first place and has the best closer in baseball. Shea Langeliers, whose A's career got off to a slow start, owns a 1.289 OPS in May, good for the third-highest mark in MLB.25. Houston Astros Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 15-25 5-5 -28 24 (-1) Astros GM Dana Brown thinks his team is too good to sell off pieces at the trade deadline, but the dominating squad of years past continues not to show up. Houston owns the third-worst winning percentage in the AL and a minus-28 run differential, mostly due to a starting staff that has been brutal (5.25 ERA, 4.65 FIP). Houston's had the toughest schedule in the majors so far, going 10-22 against teams .500 or better.26. Los Angeles Angels Allen J. Schaben / Los Angeles Times / Getty Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 15-26 4-6 -37 27 (+1) Mike Trout was once again the Angels' only positive until his knee injury derailed what was looking like his best season in several years. After losing a weekend series to Kansas City, the Halos dropped to 4-7 in May and own the AL's third-worst run differential. Youngsters Zach Neto (.652 OPS), Nolan Schanuel (.638), Mickey Moniak (.659), Logan O'Hoppe (.690), and Jo Adell (.643) should all receive plenty of opportunity. Unfortunately they've all struggled this month.27. St. Louis Cardinals Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 16-24 2-8 -51 23 (-4) Things are not going well in Cardinals land. St. Louis dropped seven of its last eight games, star catcher Willson Contreras is expected to be out for 10 weeks with a fractured forearm, and manager Oliver Marmol appears to be on the hot seat. The club's offense was supposed to be strong but has the third-worst batting average (.220) in baseball to go along with the fourth-worst on-base percentage (.298). Paul Goldschmidt is 3-for-37 (.081) with 16 strikeouts this month, but he did homer for the first time in 16 games Sunday.28. Chicago White Sox Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 12-29 6-4 -90 30 (+2) The White Sox escaped the basement in the rankings after winning four of their last five with a pitching staff that allowed 14 runs during the stretch. Garrett Crochet is tops in the majors with a 12.34 K/9 among qualified starters after striking out a career-high 11 in his last start against the Guardians.29. Colorado Rockies Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 12-28 5-5 -67 29 (-) The Rockies' season-high four-game win streak, which included a sweep of the World Series champion Rangers, is a bright spot amid another tough campaign. Brenton Doyle had six hits, four runs, four RBIs, and one homer during the stretch while enjoying a solid start to his sophomore year. Overall, the 25-year-old outfielder is slashing .289/.340/.465 with four homers and seven stolen bases.30. Miami Marlins Record Last 10 RD Previous Rank 11-31 3-7 -89 28 (-2) Peter Bendix isn t winning over anyone in Miami. Disgruntled Marlins fans protested the team outside loanDepot Park after the first-year executive traded two-time batting champion Luis Arraez to the Padres. He then made some shocking comments following the trade, saying after just 34 games that his team was unlikely to make the playoffs.Copyright © 2024 Score Media Ventures Inc. All rights reserved.
