The Atlanta Braves remain the top team in the TSN.ca MLB Power Rankings, ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers and Texas Rangers.

The Rangers climbed, from seven to three, getting third baseman Adrian Beltre and left-handed starter Matt Harrison off the DL.

Stellar pitching has lifted the Kansas City Royals from 14 to eight, while surprisingly potent bats have raised the White Sox from 16 to nine.

Cole Hamels returned to the Philadelphia Phillies rotation, helping them move from 17 to 10, while the San Francisco Giants are up from 19 to 13 despite their pitching struggles, and the New York Mets, with solid starting pitching, have jumped from 27 to 16.

Heading the other way, the L.A. Angels of Anaheim dip from nine to 14, in part due to both starting corner outfielders being hurt. The Toronto Blue Jays snapped a four-game losing streak Sunday, but they still drop from 12 to 17.

After getting swept out of Los Angeles, the Cincinnati Reds fall from 13 to 20, the Miami Marlins go from 15 to 21, Tampa Bay Rays crash from 10 to 23 and the San Diego Padres go from 18 to 25.

It's still relatively early so the fluctuations tend to be larger than they are later in the season.
