The National League West has been considered one of the weakest divisions in the Major Leagues, but with a busy offseason, 2015 could be epic for the western division. The NL West revival of course, is being led by the San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have been the most active on the hot stove this offseason. The Dodgers and Padres traded with each other, and landed other players from around the league that could really take their teams to the next level.

However, the San Francisco Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks have also made some moves that the respective organizations think will help their team. The Colorado Rockies on the other hand, have not done much of anything this offseason, to improve their team and many expect, will remain near the bottom of the division.

The Giants did not make any significant signings or trades but, were able to maintain the players that have helped them succeed in all three World Series runs with the exception of Pablo Sandoval who left for the Boston Red Sox as a free agent. Adding Nori Aoki and Casey McGehee was about all they did in terms of grabbing new players to bolster their roster. While these signings were not ideal, they filled holes in the Giants lineup.

Finally, the Diamondbacks, landed the highly valued Cuban prospect Yasmany Tomas, who is a hard hitting left fielder. Which, will potentially lift their offense back to the level it was back in 2011.

With that said lets take a look at how the NL West stacks up in the divisional power rankings:
