2021 MLB Power Rankings: Race to the Postseason

30. Baltimore Orioles (43-93)

This Week: vs. Kansas City (3), vs. Toronto (4)

The O’s might be 50 games under .500, but at least they took two-of-three in Yankee Stadium this weekend. It was just the second series win for Baltimore since the start of August. There are two interesting storylines for the O’s as the season winds down. One, will Cedric Mullins become the first Baltimore Oriole to post a 30-30 season? The first-time All-Star is currently at 26 homers and 26 stolen bases on the year. And two, will the O’s be able to hold onto the No. 1 pick and add to their farm system?

29. Arizona Diamondbacks (45-93)

This Week: vs. Texas (2), @ Seattle (3) 

In the race for the No. 1 pick in 2022, Arizona stands as the one team that could give Baltimore a run. It comes as no surprise that the two worst teams in baseball play in the two most competitive divisions in the league. The NL West and AL East have taken turns beating the D-Backs and O’s down all year long. Arizona could go on a serious run (of losses) down the stretch with 19 of its remaining 24 games against teams above .500.
