National League West

* – indicates new to team

+ – indicates injury

1. Los Angeles Dodgers

There’s no reason to think that they can’t make another trip to the World Series.

2. Arizona Diamondbacks

If their pitching staff can take another step in the right direction, they could contend for the NL West.

3. Colorado Rockies

They have possibly the best lineup in the National League and that will keep them in Wild Card contention.

4. San Francisco Giants

With all of their offseason moves to fix their lineup, they hope that will keep them out of the cellar.

5. San Diego Padres

By adding Eric Hosmer to a young roster, the Friars hope they can create some magic that Hosmer experienced with the Royals.
