The 2024 MLB season is well underway, so be sure to check in on this page for our MLB Power Rankings.

These rankings will emphasize current performance while accounting for projections for the rest of the season.

You can think of them as a hierarchy of each team in MLB at this stage of the year, but remember — it’s not just going to be an order of each team’s record — that’s what standings are for.

So without further ado, let’s get right into our 2024 MLB Power Rankings.

MLB Odds are current as of June 13 from DraftKings Sportsbook.

MLB Power Rankings: Moving Up

St. Louis Cardinals (+8)

The Cardinals are currently 32-34 with a -39 run differential, but they have been one of the hottest teams in MLB for the last month.

St. Louis has gone 14-9 since my last update, putting themselves back into the NL Wild Card race.

This is a team that has gotten terrific pitching from Sonny Gray, while their bats have finally come around.

Young players like Nolan Gorman and Alec Burleson have been two of the catalysts behind this hot streak.

Cincinnati Reds (+5)

The Reds are 33-35 with a +15 run differential due to a recent hot streak where they have won eight of their last 10 games.

Cincinnati was always better than their record earlier in the year, so it’s nice to see them get on track.

Veterans like Jeimer Candelario are finally starting to perform at expectations, which has boosted the offense during this stretch.

This is a young and exciting team that should remain in the mix for the rest of the year.

New York Yankees (+4)

The Yankees have been scorching hot since my last update, winning 21 of 27 games during this stretch.

It’s amazing to see how good their pitching has been without Gerrit Cole, especially Luis Gil and Carlos Rodon.

With Cole coming back soon, it’s time to declare the Bronx Bombers as the best team in baseball.

New York looks like World Series favorites right now, even though they aren’t price that way in the betting markets.

MLB Power Rankings: Moving Down

Chicago Cubs (-10)

The Cubs are 33-35 with a -16 run differential, but they have gone 9-16 since my last update.

This includes losing three of four games at Cincinnati and Milwaukee.

While I think this team is better than what they’ve shown recently, it’s going to be tough to stay in playoff contention with the way the other NL Central teams are playing.

Atlanta Braves (-6)

The Braves have gone 9-17 since the last power rankings, losing Ronald Acuna Jr. for the season.

It’s terrible to see a World Series contender lose their best player to go along with their NL Cy Young favorite in Spencer Strider.

Atlanta remains a contending team, but it’s starting to look like this is not their year.

Los Angeles Dodgers (-4)

The Dodgers have looked beatable since my last update, putting up a modest 13-12 record.

Their lineup has been top-heavy this season.

The bottom of the order hasn’t done enough to complement the big five of Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani, Freddie Freeman, Will Smith, and Teoscar Hernandez.

This team is still among the favorites, but they may need to make a move to add more depth to the offense, which is crazy to type as you read their lineup card, but it’s the truth.
