The Tigers offense is dangerous with Victor Martinez healthy and Torii Hunter added. Rookie Bruce Rondon might close, or the team can trade for bullpen help.
The Blue Jays grabbed the headlines with offseason moves to boost their rotation and middle infield. They could use a power hitter at first base, though.
Josh Hamilton is gone, but the Rangers still have a good lineup, strong rotation and solid bullpen. Yu Darvish is one year wiser after a 16-win debut season.
4. Tampa Bay
James Shields is gone, but the rotation remains deep. The problem has been offense, but here to help is … Luke Scott?
5. Los Angeles
Albert Pujols, Mike Trout and, now, Josh Hamilton. Wow. They will have to slug their way to the postseason because the rotation isn’t that deep.
A full season of Manny Machado will be fun to watch, but the Birds didn’t do much in the offseason while the Rays and Jays made big moves in the East.
