National League West

Standard

* – indicates new to team

+ – indicates injury

1. Los Angeles Dodgers

Did they need to sign Trevor Bauer? Not really, but by doing so insures they remain the team to beat.

2. San Diego Padres

The moves they made were the right ones and now they have to prove it by dethroning the Dodgers.

3. Arizona Diamondbacks

Being stuck in a rut like they are isn’t a good place to be. They can’t wave the white flag yet, but it’s coming.

4. San Francisco Giants

It’s been a painful process for them, but it is going to pay dividends when a couple more large contracts are off the books.

5. Colorado Rockies

If you want to see an example of how not to handle the departure of your best player, look no further than in Denver, Colorado.
