16. New York Mets (3-3) – The return of Matt Harvey makes the Mets’ starting rotation one of the best in baseball. Now if only David Wright and Curtis Granderson can return to 2012.

17. Houston Astros (3-3) – We all know the Astros have one of the most powerful lineups in all of baseball when they actually make contact. What many didn’t know is that they have a pretty strong pitching staff as well led by Dallas Keuchel.

18. Cleveland Indians (2-4)Corey Kluber, Carlos Carrasco and Trevor Bauer delivered in their season debuts for the Indians. But injuries to Yan Gomes and Michael Brantley to start the season doesn’t help the offense.

19. San Francisco Giants (3-4) – The Giants rode Madison Bumgarner to their third World Series in five years. To return there this year, they need what Tim Hudson and Tim Lincecum gave them last week to be the norm all season.

20. Tampa Bay Rays (3-3) – The Rays have Asdrubal Cabrera and Desmond Jennings hitting around Evan Longoria this season. They don’t stand a chance competing in the AL East right?
