It’s a long season, and we’ve seen before that anything can happen during the second half of the MLB schedule.
Some teams have greatly underperformed so far in 2015, but there’s enough talent on their rosters to keep them in contention moving forward. It won’t be easy, but here are five struggling teams that still could end up making things interesting in their respective divisions.
