National League West


* – indicates new to team

+ – indicates injury

1. Los Angeles Dodgers

Two straight World Series appearances, but no title to show for it. Third time’s the charm?

2. Colorado Rockies

With a pitching staff that is quickly developing into a force they should be contenders with their stacked lineup as well.

3. San Diego Padres

While the pitching staff isn’t expected to match what their lineup is capable of, they should push for a .500 record this year.

4. Arizona Diamondbacks

They quickly traded away Paul Goldschmidt once the offseason started and it immediately sucked the life out of the franchise.

5. San Francisco Giants

This is going to be the last time we see Bruce Bochy in the dugout managing a baseball team. Too bad it wasn’t under better circumstances.
