1. Chicago White Sox

Hiring Tony LaRussa to be the manager means they want and expect to be playing well into October.

2. Minnesota Twins

They are expected to be in the Postseason once again, but will they actually win a series?

3. Kansas City Royals

This is a perfect time for them to sneak under the radar and become a thorn in opponents sides this season.

4. Cleveland Indians

The restart button has been pressed again with the trade of Francisco Lindor.

5. Detroit Tigers

Look for more growing pains, but their new manager A.J. Hinch has been through it before in Houston.
