Los Angeles Dodgers
The defending champion Los Angeles Dodgers (13-3) have a stacked roster again this season, and they’re showing it on the field early. Slugger Justin Turner is off to another hot start, batting .404 with five home runs thus far.
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox (10-6) are trying to avoid missing the playoffs for a third straight season, something the franchise has only done once since the early 1990s (2010-12). The Red Sox have a plus-21 run differential thus far.
After making the playoffs last season for the first time since 2013, the Cincinnati Reds (9-6) look like they could be headed there again. The Reds have scored the most runs in the league (91) thus far this season.
San Diego Padres
The San Diego Padres (10-7) are riding a solid pitching staff through the early part of the season. With a league-low 2.50 team ERA, the Padres are poised to ride the staff toward a second straight postseason appearance.
Although the Seattle Mariners (10-6) have allowed more runs than they’ve scored this season, the team finds itself with the second-most wins in MLB. The streaking Mariners have won seven of their previous 10 games.
