2021 MLB Weekly Recap, Power Rankings (April 19)


There’s a lot of movement in the power rankings, and a lot happened around baseball last week, headlined by the Dodgers-Padres series.

 

Dodgers and Padres deliver energetic weekend series with a playoff feel.

 

 

Pitching highlights: Jacob deGrom strikes out nine consecutive batters (one short of the MLB record), Shane Beiber becomes first to record double-digit strikeouts in first four starts of a season, Aaron Nola throws first career complete game shutout.

 

 

 

 

The Red Sox became the first American League team to hit ten wins this season, surpassing spring expectations early.

 

 

Meanwhile, the Yankees have the worst record (5-10) in the American League and are off to their worst start since 1997.

 

 

36-year-old Sean Kazmar Jr. was called up to the Braves and made his first MLB appearance since 2008.
