The Minnesota Twins have followed up their strong start to the season with a worrying losing skid, falling to 6-11 and last place in the AL Central.

This teams is a lot better than they've looked over the last week, however, and there's no way they should have fallen so far in the latest ESPN MLB Power rankings, tumbling from No. 5 to No. 13.

Despite their recent struggles, the Twins offense is still one of the most dangerous in the majors. They check in at No. 6 in slugging percentage (.407) and No. 4 in batting average (.253).

This rough stretch has also come against some really tough competition, having taken on the Boston Red Sox (No. 3 in the power rankings), Los Angeles Angels (No. 9) and Oakland Athletics (No. 6).
Those three teams also rank top nine in runs scored per game.

Even though they're losing a lot of games as of late, the Twins still have decent odds to win the World Series, at +2000 on FanDuel Sportsbook.

No longer facing a nightmare stretch of their schedule, look for Minnesota to turn things around quickly.
