The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are gaining, but the Oakland A's remain the top team in the MLB Power Rankings.

Both clubs have bolstered their respective pitching staffs, the A's with a pair of starters, Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, and the Angels with a pair of relievers, Huston Street and Jason Grilli, and are pulling ahead of the field.

The Toronto Blue Jays, who are now 9-2 in their last 11 games, make the Gillette Move of the Week, going from 16 to 11.

A rotation getting upgraded some by the addition of rookie Jimmy Nelson lifts the Milwaukee Brewers from eight to four and a strong showing in a San Francisco sweep raises the Los Angeles Dodgers from nine to five.

Five wins in six games brings the Kansas City Royals to the right side of .500 and up from 19 to 15 in this week's rankings.

Injuries have caught up to the Cincinnati Reds, who drop from four to 12. Tuesday's win over Arizona came on the heels of the Reds losing nine of the previous ten games.

A 3-8 record in their previous 11 games (before Tuesday's win against Cleveland), contributed to the Seattle Mariners sliding from seven to 13 and the Indians, 2-7 in their last nine games, drop from 14 to 19.
