* – indicates new to team

+ – indicates injury

1. Minnesota Twins

A high powered lineup with a slightly better pitching staff should keep them in the conversation.

2. Chicago White Sox

They’ve put together an interesting blend of top tier talent with veterans that bring a winning attitude.

3. Cleveland Indians

The window is closing fast and would they be tempted to trade Lindor in a 60-game season?

4. Kansas City Royals

With a new owner at the helm they will begin a methodical rebuild, but look to remain competitive with Mike Matheny in the dugout.

5. Detroit Tigers

It will be another painful year and it could be worse with only 60 games to play.
