American League West


* – indicates new to team

+ – indicates injury

1. Houston Astros

A stacked lineup and an even better rotation than last year hast Houston looking to repeat.

2. Los Angeles Angels

Health is probably more important to the success of the Halos 2018 season than any other team.

3. Seattle Mariners

Not as many roster moves this time around, but the ones they did make should have them in the Wild Card hunt.

4. Texas Rangers

They remained inactive for most of the offseason which could signal a rebuild in the near future.

5. Oakland Athletics

Their young talent is starting to take shape and a few under the radar trades/signings could have them approach .500.
