21. Pittsburgh Pirates (2-4) – The Pirates are the one team in the bottom 10 who aren’t concerned with their record right now. The pitching looks solid and Andrew McCutchen, Josh Harrison and Starlin Marte will eventually hit.
22. Los Angeles Angels (2-4) – The Angels witnessed both Jared Weaver and CJ Wilson get rocked this weekend and no one outside of Mike Trout is hitting. The sooner Garrett Richards returns to the rotation, the better.
23. Chicago White Sox (2-4) – The White Sox hope the return of Chris Sale yesterday brings some life until their ballclub. They have managed just one run or less in three of their six games.
24. Arizona Diamondbacks (3-3) – The Diamondbacks offense has been pretty good so far. Their pitching however has allowed opponents to hit for an NL worst .293 average.
25. Philadelphia Phillies (3-3) – The Phillies were pegged by many as the NL’s worst team heading into 2015. But a make-shift rotation and lights-out bullpen have performed quite well to start the year.
