With two weeks of the MLB season in the books, we're starting to see some movement from teams we didn't expect to succeed and others we did. Like, for example, the Mets moving ahead of the Nationals -- who could've predicted that, even after two weeks?

With that comes another week of MLB Power Rankings from CSNChicago.com's Tony Andracki and JJ Stankevitz. Stay tuned for updated rankings every Monday throughout the 2015 campaign. Here's where we're at so far: Preseason rankings | Week 1

1 1

If Shane Greene can keep up half the success he's already had (0.39 ERA in three starts), their rotation will be in awfully good shape.

2   2

Really hitting their stride now with a 7-game winning streak.

3   4

After something of a slow start, Cardinals imposed their will on CIN over the weekend.

4   5

Clay Buccholz has a solid FIP, but his ERA is concerning given it was over a run higher than his FIP last year.

5 17

8-game winning streak makes them the hottest team in baseball.

6   6

The beanball wars need to stop but this is a team that's been hit 14 times this year, second-most in the majors -- so I can understand why they're tired of getting thrown at.

7 8

A couple of close wins over Cubs shows they're already one of NL's elite.

 
8 3

Still middling around like a .500 team, but Harper is emerging as a true superstar, not just one with potential.

9 9

Lots of (seasoned) salt over Lawrie's slide this weekend in Kansas City.

10   7

I don't have a calculator handy but I think Nelson Cruz is on pace to hit a billion home runs this year.

11   11

Bryant's promotion just barely outweighs Lester's struggles on the positivity scale.

12   15

Thanks to a curious ejection, Ubaldo Jimenez still hasn't allowed a run this year (in 10 2/3 innings).

13 14

Offense starting to hit its stride coming off sweep of Brewers.

14 10

Will their video game offense be enough to overcome a shaky pitching staff?

15 13

Their lineup, so far, has been Mike Trout and eight other guys who aren't hitting. Erick Aybar, Matt Joyce and Chris Iannetta are all currently hitting below .190.

16 21

Somehow still 4 games over .500. Playing way over their heads right now.

17 27

+11 on run differential and sitting at 7-6 counts as second-biggest shocker in NL behind ATL.

18 25

Currently have the second-best staff ERA (2.81) in the American League.

19 23

Small sample size, etc., but through 12 games Alex Rodriguez has a .711 slugging percentage and more WAR (0.7) than he had in 44 games last year (0.5).

20   19

Kind of surprising to see Grant Balfour DFA'd, but he struggled this year and had a 5.00 ERA with 45 walks against 57 strikeouts since re-joining the Rays in 2014.

21 22

Luster wearing off from great start after being swept by Dodgers.

22 12 No Yan Gomes, and Carlos Santana is the only lineup regular with anything resembling a good stat line.
23   18

The talent -- and Carlos Rodon -- is here, but things just haven't clicked yet through 11 games.

24 16

Wallowing in a stretch having dropped 7 of 8.

25 26

Prince Fielder (.385/.439/.442) is doing some good things at the plate, but concerning that he hasn't homered yet.

26 30

Their position players have combined for an MLB-worst -0.6 WAR.

27 24

Lost 4 straight close games to the Mets and suddenly they're just 3-10 and in last place.Just took 2 out of 3 from the Dodgers and Archie Bradley is already making an impact.

28 20

Lost 9 of 10. Guess they really are only good in even years, huh?

29 28

Starting to play exactly like we all expected, but at least Odubel Herrera looks exciting.

30   29

Didn't think they'd be good this year, but also surprised they're MLB's worst team.
