MLB Power Rankings: Atlanta tops list at All-Star break

The MLB is officially at the All-Star Break, and below we have our power rankings for the first half of the season.

1. Atlanta Braves (60-29)

The Atlanta Braves are in incredible form as we head into the All-Star Break. They lead the league in several important offensive categories, including home runs and are winning games almost every night without some of their best pitchers.

2. Tampa Bay Rays (58-35)

The Rays are still the second best team, despite having won just one of their last eight games. Their pitching injuries could become an issue down the road, but they have a top-tier offense that can help make up for that.

3. Baltimore Orioles (54-35)

The Baltimore Orioles enter the break having won five games in a row. They are rapidly catching the Tampa Bay Rays, trailing them just two games in the American League division.

The Orioles have a top offense, but their pitching can be inconsistent.

4. Texas Rangers (52-39)

The Texas Rangers still lead the American League West division and despite coming into the break having lost three games in a row, they are still one of the top teams in the league.

5. Houston Astros (50-41)

The Houston Astros have rebounded from a slow start and given they are still the defending World Series champions, they should still be considered a real contender with their elite pitching.

6. Los Angeles Dodgers (51-38)

The Dodgers have had a few bad stretches this season, but they are tied again with Arizona for the National League West division. They have an explosive offense, but their pitching has been known to collapse at times.

7. Arizona Diamondbacks (52-39)

Arizona is tied with the Dodgers in the National League West division. They play consistent baseball and have a balanced team that makes them a top 10 team.

8. Cincinnati Reds (50-41)

The emergence of Elly De La Cruz has boosted the Reds into the top 10 as their offense has been explosive and they have a couple of elite arms on their pitching staff.

9. Miami Marlins (53-39)

The Marlins make a huge jump into the top 10 as they own the second best record in the National League. They are still only a fringe top 10 team because they are not used to this type of success.

10. Toronto Blue Jays (50-41)

The Blue Jays round out the top 10 as they are the second Wild-Card team and have been an overall balanced team.

11. New York Yankees (49-42)

The Yankees fall outside of the top 10 because their offense has recently been inconsistent, but they still have a top tier lineup.

12. San Francisco Giants (49-41)

The Giants jump up a few spots because they have recently been a solid team and are in the thick of the National League Wild-Card race.

13. Philadelphia Phillies (48-41)

The Phillies have certainly been improving over the last month or so, and trail the final NL Wild-Card spot by 0.5 games.

14. Milwaukee Brewers (49-42)

Similar to the Phillies, the Brewers have improved enough recently to be in the playoff conversation and worthy of a top half ranking.

15. Boston Red Sox (48-43)

The Red Sox have kept themselves in the playoff picture with a five-game winning streak and eight wins in their last 10 games.

16. Seattle Mariners (45-44)

Seattle is the last team on this list with a winning record and have kept themselves in the playoff picture.

17. Cleveland Guardians (45-45)

One of the most average teams in the league, the Cleveland Guardians lead the AL Central with a .500 record.

18. Los Angeles Angels (45-46)

Untimely injuries have put the Angels in a position where they need a big second half to reach the playoffs.

19. Minnesota Twins (45-46)

Trailing Cleveland by 0.5 a game in the AL Central, Minnesota offer very little in terms of consistency.

20. San Diego Padres (43-47)

Turns out, spending as much money as the Padres does not guarantee success, which is why they are a bottom third team.

21. Chicago Cubs (42-47)

Treading water at a few games under .500, the Cubs need a series surge for any hope at the postseason.

22. New York Mets (42-48)

The Mets are so far out of the NL East, they would be lucky to just finish the season over .500 with how poor they have been this season.

23. Pittsburgh Pirates (41-49)

One of the hottest teams to start, but reality kicked in and Pittsburgh are back towards the bottom.

24. Detroit Tigers (39-50)

One of the lowest scoring teams in the league, but Detroit's decent pitching keeps them out of the bottom five.

25. St. Louis Cardinals (38-52)

Probably the most disappointing team in the league. The Cardinals have plenty of bats, but not the results.

26. Chicago White Sox (38-54)

One of the most boring teams in the league. Chicago offer very little when it comes to consistently winning games.

27. Washington Nationals (36-54)

The Nationals show life at times but are still rebuilding, leading to a ranking in the bottom five.

28. Colorado Rockies (34-57)

They lost a game 25-1, Colorado deserve a bottom tier ranking.

29. Kansas City Royals (26-65)

Less than 30 wins at the All-Star Break keeps the Royals as the second-worst team in the league.

30. Oakland Athletics (25-67)

With only 25 wins, the A's are easily the worst team in the league and nothing has been improving.
