MLB Power Rankings: Dodgers Make a Statement

27. Kansas City Royals (44-65)

This Week: vs. Chicago White Sox (4), vs. Los Angeles Dodgers (3)

A matchup with the Red Sox is just what the doctor ordered. The Royals took three-of-four from the struggling Red Sox, with an emphatic 13-5 victory in Sunday’s clincher. Rookie catcher M.J. Melendez was strong all series, and had a game to remember Sunday with six RBI. Melendez collected 10 RBI in the series and smashed three HR. Though they’ve faced some struggled, Kansas City’s two touted rookies – Melendez and Bobby Witt Jr. – have been as impressive as advertised.
