Three weeks are now in the books here in the 2016 MLB season, and a few teams are starting to separate themselves from the pack here in the early going.

The Chicago Cubs and Washington Nationals have gotten off to terrific starts on the National League side of things, while the defending champion Kansas City Royals still look like the team to beat in the American League.

The Chicago White Sox have impressed early, though, and were the biggest risers in this week’s edition of our MLB power rankings.

As we dive into another week of analyzing how all 30 teams stack up, it’s important to remember this exercise is not meant to simply be a mirror of the current standings.

Instead, it’s a fluid process, with teams rising and falling based on where they were ranked the previous week. If a team keeps winning, it will keep climbing—it’s as simple as that.

This early in the season, preseason expectations and long-term outlook still play a role in where a team falls, though the farther we get into the season, the less of a factor that becomes.

So three weeks into the 2016 season, here is a look at where all 30 MLB teams stand.
