The St. Louis Cardinals keep rolling out ace pitchers and that keeps them on top of the TSN.ca MLB Power Rankings.
Even as injuries pile up, the Cardinals most recently dipped into their farm system for Michael Wacha, a first-rounder last summer, who was cruising at Triple-A and he held Kansas City to two hits over seven innings in his debut.
The Arizona Diamondbacks, Baltimore Orioles, and Oakland A's all climbed into the Top 10 and the Tampa Bay Rays jumped from 17 to 11.
Heading he other way, the Detroit Tigers gave up their perch at second spot, falling four spots after losing five of six. The Yankees, losers of eight of their last nine, dropped from eight to 12, despite getting Mark Teixeira and Kevin Youkilis back from the disabled list.
The Colorado Rockies and Cleveland Indians were others that were replaced in the Top 10.
A season of pitching misery continues for the Toronto Blue Jays and they sit 26th.
