If the first three months of the baseball season taught us anything, it’s that the New York Yankees are for real, and that the rest of the American League has every reason to be very worried.
The Yankees have powered their way to the top of the charts
Boston Red Sox
New York Yankees
Power, power, and more power. New York has a +177 run differential as of this writing, +26 more than the next best team (Dodgers).
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays are mid-pack in the East, heading into the end of June.
Toronto Blue Jays
Injuries to starters and the bullpen have derailed a fine start to the season.
Chicago White Sox
An unreliable pitching staff and home field have led to some high scoring games for the White Sox but remember, this team finished the 2021 season scoring an average of 4.9 runs per game.
The Guardians are doing just enough to stay relevant in the least competitive division in baseball.
Kansas City Royals
The Twins are one team that has used a weaker strength of schedule to build up its batting stats.
Los Angeles Angels
The Mariners have stayed competitive, using a sweep against the Blue Jays to crawl into position for a Wild Card.
Max Fried is helping keep this team in a race to win the division and they’ve also demonstrated one of the strongest home field advantages in baseball.
New York Mets
St. Louis Cardinals
Los Angeles Dodgers
San Diego Padres
San Francisco Giants
