AL power rankings
1. Red Sox
So many things went right last season that some players must regress in 2014. But that pitching staff should keep them in games, and shortstop phenom Xander Bogaerts has arrived.
They might have one of the best offenses in baseball with the additions of Shin-Soo Choo and Prince Fielder.Is Yu Darvish ready to become an elite starter?
Getting Miguel Cabrera off third base is a good move. The Doug Fister trade could haunt them, but the starting rotation is deep.
Will be fun to watch, considering the power they have in that ballpark of theirs. But will their starting rotation let them down once again?
Tampa Bay’s pitching and manager Joe Maddon’s Midas touch with this team means it will contend again — even if the Rays trade David Price during the season.
There’s a lot to like about this team, starting with a good pitching staff from top to bottom and a lineup that can hurt you with the long ball. But the A’s have lost starter Garrod Parker to Tommy John surgery.
