After a rather disappointing start to the season the Los Angeles Dodgers have stormed up the standings in the month of June and are currently tied for first with the San Francisco Giants. The Dodgers have won 10 out of their last 13 and are poised for a deeper playoff run this upcoming October.

Their starting rotation has been lights out, with the return of Clayton Kershaw helping them mightily. Additionally, the resurgence of Josh Beckett and Dan Haren has shored up their rotation with not one starter being a true end of the rotation player.

Offensively the Dodgers have been pretty solid scoring the 4th most runs in the National League up to this point of the season. Yasiel Puig is having an MVP-like season and with him playing everyday the Dodgers will always have youth and energy asserted into the lineup. However they have some areas to improve upon and will have a glut of outfielders when Carl Crawford returns from the DL.
