Ramon Laureano leads the A’s in batting (.278) through the early part of the MLB season.
As winners of nine straight games, the Oakland Athletics (12-4) have the best record in MLB. What is most surprising about their hot start is that the A’s don’t have a single player batting better than .280 thus far this season.
With no fans in the stands, the Chicago Cubs (10-3) have raced out to the best record in the National League. Four Cubs are batting at least .290 thus far this season, led by second baseman Jason Kipnis (.375 in 16 at-bats).
Los Angeles Dodgers
Still seeking their first World Series championship since 1988, the Los Angeles Dodgers (11-5) look like they could make another run at capturing it. The Dodgers have the best run differential in the league thus far (+41).

The Atlanta Braves (11-6) have won seven of their last 10 games to take a slim lead over the Miami Marlins in the National League East. The Braves are tied with the Dodgers for the most runs scored in the league (87).
