MLB POWER RANKINGS: WHERE ALL 30 TEAMS STAND ON OPENING DAY
The 2017 season kicked off with a tripleheader of games on Sunday, and ahead of Monday’s full slate of action, it’s time to officially unveil our Opening Day power rankings.
All offseason we’ve shuffled teams around based on free-agent signings, trades, injuries and position battles. In many cases there was a simple shift in opinion as the cold winter months wore on and we moved closer to the start of the regular season.
From here on out, we’ll have actual on-field results to base these rankings on, but for now, they’re still largely subjective and based on how the teams stack up on paper.
These rankings are a fluid process throughout the course of the season. Win, and you climb. Continue to win, and you’ll continue to climb. It’s as simple as that, yet it never fails to spark some of the best debate in the MLB community.
