It took a while but an American League East-wide losing streak has finally distanced the Yankees from the pack, as they’re the only team in their division not on a skid. Who are the big risers in the “Week of the Charge”?

(Last week’s rankings in brackets)

1. (1) New York Yankees (45-27): Javier Vazquez’s return to form has been a huge help. And big C.C. is heating up with a 4-0 record in June.

2. (7) Texas Rangers (43-28): Bad luck for the Rangers that the Angels are getting hot just as they’ve won 10 straight. But Texas has to be excited about its team. Nelson Cruz is back and some pitching help could come soon via trade.

3. (6) New York Mets (41-30): Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey’s delightful season is one of the year’s strangest stories.

4. (16) Chicago White Sox (36-34): Winners of eight straight. I’ll pat myself on the back for not writing them off last month. This is a talented team and guys like Gavin Floyd are really starting to turn it around.

5. (11) Los Angeles Angels (41-33): Yet another new team hops into the top five. There’s no one reason for their improved play but Jered Weaver has been a legit No. 1 starter and Joel Pineiro is improving quickly.

6. (5) Atlanta Braves (42-30): Stumbled a bit on the road in interleague play but they return home for the weekend. They’re 24-7 at Turner Field.

7. (4) Boston Red Sox (43-30): If John Lackey can get his game back on track, the Red Sox will factor into the playoff picture after all.

8. (2) Tampa Bay Rays (42-29): I can’t help but think their slump won’t last. There are just too many outstanding players on this team. That said, their pitching staff is due to regress slightly.

9. (8) Minnesota Twins (40-31): The pitching remains strong but baseball’s No. 5 offense in 2009 has slipped to No. 11 this year. Joe Mauer is probably to blame for that stat.

10. (13) St. Louis Cardinals (40-31): Back on top after beating on the Blue Jays. And Matt Holliday is finally heating up.

11. (14) San Diego Padres (42-29): They just won’t go away. Adrian Gonzalez continues to be, arguably, baseball’s most underrated all-around player. BetOnline.com

12. (12) Cincinnati Reds (40-33): Starting to heat up again but you have to wonder if they should look into acquiring a pitcher.

13. (17) Philadelphia Phillies (37-32): Could Jimmy Rollins be the lift they need? His walkoff homer on Wednesday was a thing of beauty but it’s too early to know if he’ll stay healthy.

14. (10) San Francisco Giants (39-31): A big reason why they’re in the playoff hunt: Aubrey Huff has picked up the offensive slack for the underwhelming Pablo Sandoval this season.

15. Detroit Tigers (38-32): Not playing bad baseball by any means but they’ve lost two in a row and everyone above them seems to be streaking.

16. (3) Los Angeles Dodgers (38-33): Weren’t they baseball’s hottest team a few weeks ago? Now they’ve lost six consecutive games. Andre Ethier still doesn’t look healthy.

17. (18) Colorado Rockies (38-33): Jason Hammel is suddenly untouchable but Ubaldo Jimenez gets hit hard for the first time all year. Go figure.

18. (15) Toronto Blue Jays (38-34): Teams have figured out this impatient group of hackers. Jose Bautista and Ricky Romero continue to impress, but the Jays’ playoff dream appears over.

19. (27) Seattle Mariners (30-41): The pressure is off now and they’ve won six straight games. Too little, too late? It hurts that they’ve gained no ground on the streaking Rangers.

20. (22) Florida Marlins (35-36): New manager. Six and a half games out of first. There could be still hope for the Marlins this year.

21. (20) Milwaukee Brewers (31-40)
22. (21) Chicago Cubs (31-40)
23. (23) Washington Nationals (33-40)
24. (19) Oakland Athletics (34-40)
25. (24) Kansas City Royals (30-43)
26. (26) Arizona Diamondbacks (28-45)
27. (25) Houston Astros (27-45)
28. (28) Cleveland Indians (26-44)
29. (29) Baltimore Orioles (19-52)
30. (30) Pittsburgh Pirates (25-46)
