Pitching staff gave up 614 runs in 2012, and staff ace Brett Anderson is healthy and available for a full season. The A’s can’t be counted out in the West.

 

8. Kansas City

James Shields and Wade Davis bring credibility to the Royals’ rotation. Eric Hosmer should improve, so KC will make a big jump this year.

 

9. Chicago

The White Sox didn’t make any major additions, so they are banking on Chris Sale and other young players step up. Paul Konerko is 37 years old. Hmmm … .

 

10. New York

A-Rod, Curtis Granderson and Mark Teixeira are injured. Andy Pettitte is 40. Hiroki Kuroda is 38. Phil Hughes has back problems. Dark clouds are forming.

 

11. Minnesota

Justin Morneau looks ready for a big year. Mike Pelfrey, Vance Worley and Kyle Gibson should boost the rotation. But fans want to fast forward to 2015.

 

12. Cleveland

The Indians offense will be better in 2013 with Mark Reynolds, Michael Bourn and Nick Swisher. The pitching staff, however, didn’t receive any notable upgrades.

 

13. Boston
