Tampa Bay Number One Power Ranking

Kevin Torrey II, Staff writer

The most surprising team of the MLB season so far has been the Tampa Bay Rays. Although they have been struggling over the past few years, this year they look like favorites for a world series championship. Through 23 games, the Rays hold number one in the power rankings with a record of 20-3. They lost to the Toronto Blue Jays twice, and the Cincinnati Reds once. Their charge of dominance has been lead by Randy Arozarena. Arozarena currently has a batting average of .348, he has hit five home runs and has 24 RBIs. For pitching, 2022 All-Star Shane McClanahan has been untouchable on the mound. Through five games, he has picked up 4 wins on 0 losses. He has a 1.86 ERA with 37 strikeouts. With the depth of talent on this team, they should make a deep push this year to come home with the World Series trophy.
