It is April, and baseball is finally here. After a long six-month hiatus, the first week of the season has now reached its conclusion. With one week of the season now complete, it is as good a time as ever for power rankings.
This will be the first edition of Baseball Essential’s Weekly Baseball Power Rankings. We will be ranking all thirty teams based on an assortment of factors, including true talent level, recent performance, future expectations, and of course team stats. For these rankings we will discuss the team in brief, which players had the best weeks for each team, and take a look at the team’s record for the previous week as well as expectations for the next.
Without further adieu, here is the first edition of the 2016 Baseball Essential MLB Power Rankings.
*Note* All stats used are through Saturday only, while all records go through the end of the week (in this case Sunday).
