MLB Power Rankings Week 11: Plenty of movement at the top

It has been a fantastic first two months of the MLB season as plenty of teams appear to be World Series contenders.

Let’s break down the top teams in baseball in the Week 11 Power Rankings.

1. New York Yankees (49-22, 1st in AL East)

The Bronx Bombers are back. The Yankees are unstoppable at the plate recently as Juan Soto and Aaron Judge are two of the best qualified hitters in baseball.

Recently, the Yankees just took three out of four games from the red-hot Royals. It should have been a sweep, but a blown save by Clay Holmes prevented that.

2. Philadelphia Phillies (46-22, 1st in NL East)

Bad news keeps coming for the Phillies. A few days after Brandon Marsh was placed on the injured list, the Phillies announced that JT Realmuto will miss the next few weeks after undergoing knee surgery.

Philadelphia needs Trea Turner to come back - and fast. 

3. Baltimore Orioles (45-23, 2nd in AL East)

Even without John Means and Tyler Wells, the O’s are doing just fine.

Kyle Bradish, Corbin Burnes, and Grayson Rodriguez have been fantastic in the last month and are getting plenty of run support from Gunnar Henderson, Adley Rutschman, and the rest of the crew. Even though Baltimore isn’t leading the division, they’re getting close.

4. Cleveland Guardians (43-23, 1st in AL Central)

The Guardians remain a top team in baseball even though the offense has cooled off a bit. Jose Ramirez, Josh Naylor, and David Fry have created a lethal first few hitters in the lineup, but Naylor and Fry have struggled in June. Without them thriving, the Guardians haven’t been as dangerous, but they're still solid.

5. Los Angeles Dodgers (42-28, 1st in NL West)

It’s been a roller coaster season for the Dodgers who were the heavy favorites to win the World Series before Opening Day.

Los Angeles took a huge series in the Bronx from the Yankees earlier this week but then lost two out of three to the Rangers at home after that. It’s hard to know what to expect from the Dodgers each day.

6. Seattle Mariners (40-31, 1st in AL West)

After an incredibly slow start that had many questioning the validity of the Mariners lineup, it’s been a much better last few weeks for Seattle.

The lineup is starting to hit, the bullpen is still strong, and the rotation might be a top-three unit in baseball. There is plenty of potential in Seattle.

7. Milwaukee Brewers (40-28, 1st in NL Central)

Admittedly, I haven’t been too high on the Brewers this season even with their strong start to the season. Milwaukee lacks pitching besides Freddy Peralta and they’ve had to convert several relievers into starters.

The Milwaukee lineup is great, but without some better pitching, I’m worried about the rest of the year for the Brewers.

8. San Diego Padres (37-35, 2nd in NL West)

The San Diego lineup has looked phenomenal recently. After a series split against the Diamondbacks, the Padres swept the Athletics in San Diego.

Luis Arraez, Fernando Tatis Jr, Jurickson Profar, and Manny Machado have been the key to success at the top of the lineup, but even Jake Cronenworth and Jackson Merrill have been very productive in the middle of the order.

9. Minnesota Twins (37-32, 3rd in AL Central)

The Twins have won four of their last five games as they enter one of the easier sections of their schedule. In the last two weeks, the Twins have faced the Pirates, Rockies, and Athletics.

If Minnesota can capitalize on the A’s this weekend, the Twins could be right back in the running for the division.

10. Atlanta Braves (36-30, 2nd in NL East)

I nearly dropped the Braves out of the top 10 this week. In the last month or so, the Braves have had one of the worst offenses in baseball.

It sounds false, but the loss of Ronald Acuna Jr. has sent the team into a spiral. In the last week, the Braves lost three out of four games to the Nationals and two out of three games to the Orioles. Yikes.

11. Kansas City Royals (40-30, 2nd in AL Central)

I was super high on the Royals during April and May. The young lineup was clicking in every way and Bobby Witt Jr. was my pick for the AL MVP.

However, the Royals have gone through a bit of a rough patch recently. Most recently, the Royals lost an important series to the Yankees at Kauffman Stadium. 

12. San Francisco Giants (34-35, 3rd in NL West)

The Giants have won back-to-back series against the Rangers and Astros. With Jorge Soler back in the lineup and a bunch of young prospects hitting their stride at the right time, the Giants have become a real threat in the last few weeks.

With their above-average rotation and solid bullpen, the Giants could be a dark horse.

13. Boston Red Sox (35-34, 3rd in AL East)

After splitting a series with the worst team in baseball in the South Side of Chicago, the Red Sox bounced back by winning two out of three games against the Phillies in Boston.

The Sox were fortunate to get Masataka Yoshida back in the lineup this week, so maybe he can provide the spark that the Red Sox desperately need right now.

14. Texas Rangers (33-35, 2nd in AL West)

Last season, the Rangers had one of the most balanced and dangerous lineups in the game. In 2024, the lineup is nearly the same, but injuries have wrecked the offense.

Corey Seager and Evan Carter have been battling injuries recently, but there is good news: Max Scherzer is scheduled to start rehab soon.

15. Washington Nationals (32-36, 3rd in NL East)

The Nats weren’t expected to be all that good this season. With a lot of veterans on one-year contracts and young players who are still very early in their careers, expectations were low for Washington.

But the Nats have been a pleasant surprise as Jake Irvin, MacKenzie Gore, and Trevor Williams have been great on the mound and the lineup has been more than solid.

The remainder...

  1. Cincinnati Reds (33-35, 3rd in NL Central)

  2. St. Louis Cardinals (33-34, 2nd in NL Central)

  3. Arizona Diamondbacks (33-36, 4th in NL West)

  4. Toronto Blue Jays (33-35, 4th in AL East)

  5. Tampa Bay Rays (33-36, 5th in AL East)

  6. Detroit Tigers (33-35, 4th in AL Central)

  7. Houston Astros (31-38, 3rd in AL West)

  8. New York Mets (30-37, 4th in NL East)

  9. Chicago Cubs (33-36, 4th in NL Central)

  10. Pittsburgh Pirates (32-36, 5th in NL Central)

  11. Los Angeles Angels (26-42, 4th in AL West)

  12. Oakland Athletics (26-45, 5th in AL West)

  13. Miami Marlins (23-45, 5th in NL East)

  14. Colorado Rockies (24-44, 5th in NL West)

  15. Chicago White Sox (18-52, 5th in AL Central)
