American League Power Rankings: Preseason Edition

8 of 15

21. The Tampa Bay Rays finished the 2015 season with a record of 80-82, good for a fourth place finish in a tough American League East and just a game behind the Baltimore Orioles for third place. <strong>2016 Outlook:</strong> The Rays are young, and fairly talented but in what will again be a tough American League East I expect to see the Rays finish about right where they did last year, in the middle of the pack with a near .500 record. Sorry Rays fans, just good enough not to get a high draft pick again, not quite good enough to eclipse the log jam in front of them that is the Jays, Yankees, and Red Sox.. (0-0). Previous: N/Ath. Tampa Bay Rays. 8. team
