MLB Power Rankings 2022 | Ranking All 30 Baseball Teams This Season

We’re over a month into the season now and several teams have already begun to separate themselves in the standings as well as our baseball power rankings.

Here are our full 2022 MLB Power Rankings, ranked from worst to first.

All MLB betting odds are current as of Tuesday, May 10, from Caesars Sportsbook.

MLB Power Rankings

30. Cincinnati Reds (6-23) ↔️

Sell the team, Bob.

29. Detroit Tigers (8-20) ⬇️ 2

You won’t find a lineup struggling more than the Tigers right now, as they’re hitting below the Mendoza line in their past 12 games.

28. Kansas City Royals (9-17) ⬆️ 1

Only three teams have single-digit wins right now, and the Royals are the best of the trio. Congrats, KC!

27. Washington Nationals (10-20) ⬇️ 1

For the second straight week: TRADE JUAN SOTO.

26. Pittsburgh Pirates (12-16) ⬇️ 2

On a similar note, call up Oneil Cruz.

25. Baltimore Orioles (12-17) ⬆️ 3

Austin Hays looks really cool, so that’s neat! Also, call up Adley Rutschman already.

24. Boston Red Sox (10-19) ⬇️ 5

This team is a bigger waste of money than buying Blockbuster stock back in the 2000s.

23. Oakland Athletics (11-18) ⬇️ 3

Oakland will always be there to upset some contenders, but the days of bringing nobodies to the playoffs are over.

22. Texas Rangers (11-16) ⬆️ 3

The Rangers are looking a little better as of late, but there are just way too many holes in the pitching staff to think they’ll win more than 75 games.

21. Chicago Cubs (10-18) ⬆️ 1

There’s a reason the bleacher creatures drink enough beers to make 100-foot-long cup snakes.

20. Arizona Diamondbacks (16-14) ⬆️ 3

Low key, Arizona kinda looks nice right now. I’m sure they’ll lose like 20 straight later this year, but good for them being above .500 a month into the season.

19. Philadelphia Phillies (13-16) ⬇️ 4

When you have negative defense to support the overrated pitching staff in Philly, you won’t get great results.

18. Cleveland Guardians (15-14) ⬆️ 3

This team is very very average. Jose Ramirez is a beast, though.

17. Seattle Mariners (13-17) ⬇️ 10

I can’t believe I had Seattle at No. 3 just two weeks ago. I can’t get a good read on them AT ALL.

16. Chicago White Sox (14-14) ⬆️ 2

Just when I thought they were turning things around, the White Sox blew a six-run lead in the ninth inning to the Guardians. YIKES.

15. Atlanta Braves (14-16) ⬆️ 2

Ronald Acuña Jr. has given the Braves a nice jolt of late, but we’ll see if they have enough pitching to make the postseason and defend their title.

14. Miami Marlins (13-16) ⬇️ 1

I have a feeling that Miami will surprise everyone and sneak into the playoffs with that nasty pitching staff of theirs.

13. Colorado Rockies (16-13) ⬆️ 3

I think Colorado’s downfall is going to happen soon and we’ll see them as they really are: a bunch of frauds.

12. St. Louis Cardinals (16-12) ⬇️ 2

I wouldn’t call St. Louis contenders just yet, but how cool would it be to see the old guys win one together?

11. Tampa Bay Rays (18-12) ↔️

I’ll never understand how the Rays compete every year without any real superstars, although Wander Franco is surely turning into one.

10. Los Angeles Angels (20-11) ⬇️ 2

I still can’t completely buy into this Angels team just yet. Taylor Ward looks like Mike Trout 2.0 though, which is neat.

9. San Francisco Giants (17-12) ⬇️ 3

San Francisco just had a BRUTAL week, but I trust this team will be a force in the NL West when fully healthy.

8. Milwaukee Brewers (19-11) ⬆️ 1

What else is there to say other than Rowdy Tellez is the greatest player on the planet?

7. Minnesota Twins (18-11) ⬆️ 7

Alright, FINE! I’ll buy into the Twins being contenders this year.

6. Houston Astros (18-11) ⬆️ 6

Don’t look now, but the Astros have won eight of their last 10 games and are tearing the cover off the ball.

5. Toronto Blue Jays (17-13) ⬇️ 1

Kevin Gausman and Alek Manoah are a couple of aces supporting an already terrifying lineup in Toronto.

4. San Diego Padres (19-11) ⬆️ 1

It’s scary to think San Diego’s lineup looks THIS dangerous without Fernando Tatis, Jr.

3. New York Yankees (20-8) ↔️

This Yankees squad has the firepower and arms to bring ring No. 28 to the Bronx.

2. New York Mets (20-10) ⬇️ 1

When you combine the best pitching staff in baseball with a clutch-hitting lineup, good things happen.

1. Los Angeles Dodgers (19-8) ⬆️ 1

If you doubled the Mets’ run differential, you’d still have to add two more runs to reach where the Dodgers are at. They’re THAT good.
