The Orioles have struggled at times throughout the 2014 campaign but remain in the thick of a fairly competitive AL East. They currently have 7/2 odds of winning that division and a 28/1 shot on the World Series futures.

In his first two months with Baltimore, Cruz has powered the franchise even as it’s been sidetracked with injuries. In addition to the bombs, he’s also knocked in 48 runs, all with an OBP of .376.

Cruz’s seven home runs in the past nine games are impressive, but so too are Springer’s six in the past seven. The rookie outfielder has given Astros fans reason to smile despite the fact that they sit last in their division as a 500/1 MLB betting long shot.

The year is young and anything can happen in the standings. Don’t miss the chance to watch two of the sport’s hottest individual commodities see if they can start powering their franchises forward.
