1. Cleveland Guardians
It starts with their pitching depth and what they can dispatch from the minor leagues. Their lineup is well balanced and Jose Ramirez is a yearly MVP candidate.
2. Minnesota Twins
The trade to acquire Pablo Lopez cost them Luis Arraez, but with them resigning Carlos Correa it isn’t that large of a loss.
3. Chicago White Sox
They are on the cusp of either being a legitimate contender or falling flat on their faces in the cellar.
4. Detroit Tigers
The only thing to watch about them this year is Miguel Cabrera who is playing in his final season.
5. Kansas City Royals
There are a few bright spots with the likes of Bobby Witt Jr. and Vinnie Pasquantino taking hold of their respective positions. Outside of that it’s another rough year.
