American League West

* – indicates new to team

1. Los Angeles Angels

Without a repeat of last years injury issues in their rotation, they should remain atop the division.

2. Seattle Mariners

An infusion of power supplied by Nelson Cruz puts the Mariners into a possible Wild Card spot.

3. Oakland Athletics

Their wild offseason has them seeing a lot of new faces, but that shouldn’t take them out of the postseason equation.

4. Texas Rangers

Losing Yu Darvish will hurt more than you think.

5. Houston Astros

It will be tough for them to finish at or above .500 this year.
