Problems with pitcher Walker Buehler as he was diagnosed with a flexor strain and underwent surgery to remove a bone spur. Expected to
come back in 6-8 weeks. Hoping the dodgers can maintain their offense and receive continued success in the NL West.

Houston Astros

Ranked #4 Houston Astros are first in the American League West with a record of 39-24. The Houston Astros have proven
they are A very good team. This effect seems to have been carried out in recent years as last year’s 2021 season they were a top team in the MLB. The pitching of the Astros has been notable as being the first team in the MLB with the lowest ERA in the league. The Astros have an ERA of 3.06 which makes them a good team. This paired with a lethal offense the Astros have found their cell place in the number 4 spot in the MLB.

San Diego Padres

Ranked #5 the San Diego Padres are 2nd in the National league west just behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. Currently with a 39-24 record the Padres are one of the best teams in the league. Manny Machadohas been killing it and has been a star for the Padres. Currently Missing the talents of shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. are out with a wrist injury. The Padres are rearing up to face them and continue their win streak. I’m excited to see what a healthy Padres team looks like. Certainly, a lot of talent in the NL
West and the Dodgers better watch their backs
