With little more than a month remaining in the 2016 MLB regular season, plenty still needs to be figured out before the postseason begins.

For the second consecutive week, the top five spots in these rankings went to the same five teams, as the Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers, Washington Nationals, Toronto Blue Jays and Cleveland Indians continue to represent the cream of the crop.
