2022 MLB Power Rankings: May 9


Teams are getting hot and might be separating themselves a few weeks into the 2022 MLB season, and the latest power rankings include some teams making big moves up the standings.

 

1. Los Angeles Dodgers (19-7) | Last week: 2 (+1)

A six-game winning streak—including two wins over the Giants within the division—push the Dodgers back to the No. 1 spot in the power rankings.

 

2. New York Yankees (19-8) | Last week: 1 (-1)

The winning streak came to an end, but the Yankees got a series win over the Jays and ended the week with a walk-off homer by Gleyber Torres, which Rangers manager Chris Woodward was not happy about due to the short porch at Yankee Stadium.

 

3. New York Mets (20-10) | Last week: 3

Max Scherzer had his first loss as a Met and his first loss overall since last May yesterday, but the Mets still had a strong weekend, winning two of three from the Phillies—headlined by one of the best comebacks in franchise history on Thursday night.

 

4. Milwaukee Brewers (19-10) | Last week: 6 (+2)

The defending champion Braves handled the Brewers over the weekend, but it was still a good sign for Milwaukee that the offense exploded again versus the hapless Reds early in the week.

 

5. Los Angeles Angels (19-11) | Last week: 4 (-1)

 

 

It just looks like the Angels are having fun and have a great thing going right now.

 

6. San Diego Padres (19-10) | Last week: 5 (-1)

The Padres have won their past four series, and they’ll look to make it five straight when they face the Cubs before the schedule toughens up a bit.

 

7. Houston Astros (18-11) | Last week: 15 (+8)

Coming off a 7-0 week, the Astros rise back into the top ten of the power rankings. The Twins this week will probably be their toughest matchup for the rest of the month.

 

8. Minnesota Twins (18-11) | Last week: 9 (+1)

A four-game split with the Orioles was disappointing, but Minnesota bounced back with a weekend sweep of the A’s.

 

9. Tampa Bay Rays (18-11) | Last week: 12 (+3)

The Rays are also back in the top ten, winning six straight before dropping Sunday’s game against the Mariners.

 

10. San Francisco Giants (16-12) | Last week: 7 (-3)

The Giants were in a mini cold streak, but the offense came alive on Saturday. After just facing the Cardinals, San Fran will face the Rockies and the Red Birds again in alternating fashion over the next three series.

 

11. St. Louis Cardinals (16-12) | Last week: 11

12. Chicago White Sox (14-13) | Last week: 21 (+9)

13. Toronto Blue Jays (17-13) | Last week: 8 (-5)

14. Atlanta Braves (14-16) | Last week: 16 (+2)

15. Colorado Rockies (16-12) | Last week: 13 (-2)

16. Cleveland Guardians (14-14) | Last week: 18 (+2)

17. Miami Marlins (13-15) | Last week: 10 (-7)

18. Seattle Mariners (13-16) | Last week: 17 (-1)

19. Arizona Diamondbacks (15-14) | Last week: 23 (+4)

20. Philadelphia Phillies (12-16) | Last week: 14 (-6)

21. Texas Rangers (11-15) | Last week: 25 (+4)

22. Baltimore Orioles (11-17) | Last week: 26 (+4)

23. Boston Red Sox (10-19) | Last week: 20 (-3)

24. Chicago Cubs (9-18) | Last week: 19 (-5)

25. Oakland Athletics (10-18) | Last week: 22 (-3)

26. Pittsburgh Pirates (11-16) | Last week: 24 (-2)

27. Kansas City Royals (9-16) | Last week: 27

28. Washington Nationals (10-20) | Last week: 29 (+1)

29. Detroit Tigers (8-19) | Last week: 28 (-1)

30. Cincinnati Reds (5-23) | Last week: 30
