Last week was a good week to be a fan of California baseball. Three of the top four players in our fourth weekly Power Rankings hail from the Golden State, led by Oakland third baseman Josh Donaldson. He's joined in the top four by two of his in-state brethren -- albeit from the southern part of the state -- the Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez and the Angels' C.J. Wilson. All told, the four California teams contributed eight of the 30 players in the power rankings for the final week of April.
FANTASY BASEBALL WEEK 5: Power rankings | Hitting report | Pitching report | Closer rankings | Roundtable: Slow starters, sell-high candidates, more | Prospect watch | May 1 news: Harang's streak ends | Pitcher scouting report: Kyle Lohse | Weekly planner
These rankings highlight the 30 best players in fantasy baseball from the previous week, not going forward. This might shine a light on a few players owners may not know about who are on a hot streak, potentially worth picking up to slot into the utility spot for a week or so, or help owners make decisions regarding a trade. All stats are from games played from April 24 to April 30, unless otherwise noted.
