The 2021 Major League Baseball season rolls on as we are one-third and the MLB Power Rankings are as topsy-turvey as ever. 

As the temperatures heat up, so are the divisional races across the league.

The San Francisco Giants lead the NL West, but both the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers would make the postseason if the MLB playoffs today.

Carlos Rodón, who carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning vs. the Tigers on Sunday, has a 1.89 ERA this season. It’s second-lowest in the AL, behind only teammate Lance Lynn (1.23). 


#3 San Francisco Giants (40-25)

  • Previous Rank: 4

The Giants, who have spent more time on the road this year than any team in baseball, are about to play 10 of their next 12 games (vs. the D-backs, Phillies, and A’s) at home. But being on the road hasn’t bothered the Giants’ bullpen. In the past 12 games, San Fran relievers have allowed just five earned runs, over their last 48 innings.


 

#4 Los Angeles Dodgers (39-26)

  • Previous Rank: 5

The Dodgers feasted on the underbelly of the MLB in taking five of six from the Pirates (3-0) and Rangers (2-1). Walker Buehler, who improved to 6-0 with a win over the Rangers Sunday, has made 22 consecutive regular-season starts without a loss. He’s 8-0 with a 2.74 ERA over that span, and the Dodgers are 17-5 in those games. 


#5 San Diego Padres (38-29)

Previous Rank: 2

After the Padres dropped two of three to the Cubs and the first two to the Mets. Slam Diego made a triumphant return on Sunday when Fernando Tatis Jr. injected some life into a somewhat anemic Padres offense with a grand slam in the seventh inning that salvaged the last game of their three-game series. It was Tatis Jr.’s NL-leading 19th homer. The win ended a four-game losing streak for the Friars.
