MLB Power Ratings

 

Last updated: Monday, September 16, 2019 - thru games of September 15 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
