The hunt for the 2022 MLB postseason is heating up.

The National League East division race is coming down to the wire, while two NL wild-card spots are still up for grabs.

The top two division winners in each league will receive byes to the Division Series. The other four teams in each league will play best-of-three series in the wild-card round, with the higher seed hosting all three games.

Here’s where the playoff race stands in both leagues through Sunday afternoon.


The Los Angeles Dodgers (110-48) own the best record in the sport and along with clinching the division on Sept. 13, they clinched the No. 1 overall seed throughout the NL playoffs on Sunday. The San Diego Padres (87-71) hold the second wild card.


The New York Mets (98-60) and Atlanta Braves (99-59) are in a slugfest for the NL East. Both teams have clinched playoff berths, but neither has secured the division. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Phillies (86-73) are third in the NL wild-card picture.


The St. Louis Cardinals (92-67) have been one of the hottest teams since the All-Star break and subsequently powered themselves to the top of the NL Central. They clinched the division with a win over the Milwaukee Brewers (84-75).


No. 1: New York Mets (clinched playoff spot)

No. 2: San Diego Padres (clinched wild card)

No. 3: Philadelphia Phillies


The Houston Astros (104-55) clinched the AL West, while the Seattle Mariners (87-70) are the second AL wild card.


The New York Yankees (97-61) clinched the AL East on Tuesday with their win over the Toronto Blue Jays (90-69). Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Rays (86-73) are five games ahead of the Baltimore Orioles (82-77). 


In a division that changed all summer, the Cleveland Guardians (90-69) prevailed. The Chicago White Sox (78-80) and Minnesota Twins (77-82), both of who were atop the division throughout the first half of the season, have been eliminated.


No. 1: Toronto Blue Jays (clinched wild card)

No. 2: Seattle Mariners (clinched wild card)

No. 3: Tampa Bay Rays (clinched wild card)
