MLB Power Ratings

 


Last updated: Monday, July 9, 2018 - thru games of July 8


Welcome to my MLB power ratings!  I will be updating this page on Mondays 
and Fridays.  These ratings are based on a mathematical formula which
involves several factors, including won-lost record, schedule strength, and
margin of victory in games.  Results of recent games are weighed with
slightly more emphasis than games played earlier in the season.  Enjoy!


LR = Ranking on last update
