American League West


* – indicates new to team

+ – indicates injury

1. Oakland Athletics

They certainly have the most upside at numerous positions, but will it translate into good things in October?

2. Houston Astros

Their GM and Manager have both been fired from the sign stealing investigation. Can Dusty Baker keep them as contenders?

3. Los Angeles Angels

Bringing in Joe Maddon was the smart move and signing Anthony Rendon was nice, but their pitching staff is still suspect.

4. Texas Rangers

With the opening of a new ballpark who will be the player that takes this team to the next level?

5. Seattle Mariners

The direction is pretty straight forward, but when will they finally say it’s time to become contenders?
