MLB Power Rankings: St. Louis Cardinals picking up steam

The 2021 MLB season is rolling along, and as we head into the May slate, some teams are truly starting to strike their stride.

We have actually formally gone into May, which means the 2021 MLB season has actually gotten off to a good start, avoiding the COVID-19 pandemic shutting them down. In reality, we have actually not seen too lots of cancellations due to the infection, which is an excellent indication that this might be a more normal season than last year.
With that stated, here are our newest 2021 MLB Power Rankings.
* All records prior to Monday, May 3rd Games


Detroit Tigers 8-21 Last rank: 30

Once again, the Detroit Tigers can be found in as our No. 30 general team in Major League Baseball, as they have not even won their tenth video game yet. It is going to be a long season in the Motor City, and after losing ten of their last 11 video games, you can be sure that a date with last location in the AL Central is assured this season.


Colorado Rockies 10-18 Last rank: 29

The Colorado Rockies are once again the No. 29-ranked group on our weekly power rankings, and they have problems on the field, and in the front office. Colorado has been in a funk because trading away Nolan Arenado, and I do not see them getting it best before it is too late.


Miami Marlins 11-16 Last rank: 23

Miami has actually lost three straight and 4 of their last five, as they are just not striking right now. Over the past three video games, the Marlins have actually summoned only 4 runs as a group, and while the pitching has been solid, no one is going to win with an offense this anemic.


Minnesota Twins 10-16 Last rank: 28

The Minnesota Twins have actually won 4 of their last five, and possibly it is time for them to get hot and begin making some noise in the AL Central. They have actually been mashing the ball, scoring at least nine runs in three of their last 5 video games, and Nelson Cruz is a monster, hitting near.400 with eight house runs and 21 runs batted in.


Chicago Cubs 12-16 Last rank: 12

At the start of the 2021 MLB season, many believed that the Chicago Cubs would be one of the best teams in the NL Central, however it has not played out that way. They have actually won 2 of their last 7 games, and have just recently placed Jake Arrieta, Nico Hoerner, and Dan Winkler on the IL.


Baltimore Orioles 13-15 Last rank: 27

Here comes the Baltimore Orioles, as they have won 4 of their last five games, and are inching towards the.500 mark. Baltimore is getting strong pitching, and winning on the roadway, and might be among the more surprising stories in the MLB prior to all is stated and done.


Texas Rangers 13-16 Last rank: 26

The Texas Rangers remain in dead last in the AL West, and I truly do not see them making any sound anytime quickly, particularly with the rest of the department playing well. Nick Solak has actually been an intense spot at the meal, posting a batting average near.300, while likewise leading the team with 7 home runs.


Pittsburgh Pirates 12-15 Last rank: 21

It appears the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals are going to be in the mix for the NL Central, leaving the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates in their wake. The Pirates have actually lost 5 straight video games, are connected with the Cubs for last location, and just are not striking right now.


Atlanta Braves 12-16 Last rank: 17

What is happening with the Atlanta Braves? The team that nearly made it to the World Series last season has actually been downright frustrating in 2021, and can not appear to play constant baseball for extended amount of times. They have the talent to turn things around, however they require to start getting it in gear as we begin the month of May.


Philadelphia Phillies 13-15 Last rank: 15

Another NL East team that has actually been having a hard time as of late is the Philadelphia Phillies, who saw star outfielder Bryce Harper get rocked by a 97 MPH fastball in the face this past week. Philadelphia has lost 3 of their last 5, but in spite of a record below.500, they are a half-game out of.
