1. Chicago White Sox

The division is theirs for the taking, but can they get to the ALCS and beyond?

2. Detroit Tigers

The prospects are arriving and the pitching staff is beginning to take shape. It’ll be an interesting team to watch.

3. Minnesota Twins

They had an interesting offseason in that they could be a contender for a Wild Card spot, but that remains to be seen.

4. Cleveland Guardians

With a new nickname now comes the same old question of who will be the next big name player to be dealt?

5. Kansas City Royals

They are in a weird transition where they brought back Zack Greinke, but are expecting big things from their prospects as well.
