MLB Power Rankings: 16-20

Last Week: 26. Oakland Athletics . 20. player. 96. A sweep of the Tigers helped propel the Athletics to a 5-1 week. They’re still in last place in the AL West with an awful record, but the projection systems say they’re an above-.500 team the rest of the way.. 23-33

Last Week: 24. Arizona Diamondbacks . 19. player. 8. What will the rest of the summer hold for a Diamondbacks team who just traded one of their most explosive bats in Mark Trumbo?. 25-28

27-28. Last Week: 18. San Diego Padres . 17. player. 127. A nice 4-2 week by the Padres has them on the cusp of .500. They’ve received strong pitching performances, but the offense has struggled and their defense rates as one of the worst in baseball.

The Rangers are on fire right now (and have been for about a month), but the gains through the MLB Power Rankings are slow due to their slow start and still unimpressive overall record.. 28-26. Last Week: 17. Texas Rangers . 16. player. 95
