The Detroit Tigers continue to hold top spot in the TSN.ca MLB Power Rankings, ahead of the Oakland A's and resurgent Atlanta Braves.

With Miguel Cabrera back to his usual form after a poor first month, the Tigers are as fearsome as ever, opening up a 5.5-game lead in the AL Central.

It's still early enough for some major fluctuations from week to week.

Among the teams rising this week, the Seattle Mariners jump from 16-8, benefitting from the return of starting pitcher Hisashki Iwakuma, as well as fortunate results for starting pitcher Chris Young.

At the top of the American League East, the Baltimore Orioles are up from 17 to 10, while the Kansas City Royals made a corresponding seven-spot jump, from 19 to 12.

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, boosted by rookie call-up C.J. Cron, rise from 20 to 11 and the Toronto Blue Jays gain, from 21 to 14.

Losing ace starter Jose Fernandez drops the Miami Marlins from nine to 15, as the Texas Rangers slip from 13 to 18 due to their own pitching problems.

The Phillies (down 11 to 20), Mets (down 14 to 22) and Twins (crashing from 12 to 25) were others to have big drops in this week's rankings.
