MLB Power Rankings 2021: Potential playoff previews on deck originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

As we enter the stretch run of the MLB regular season, fans will get a few potential playoff previews this week.

The Giants are clinging to their NL West lead entering a big week in which they’ll host the Dodgers — but not before traveling to Milwaukee for a four-game series against the Brewers, another NL heavyweight.

The Giants have led the division since late May, and their series against the Dodgers will challenge that. Los Angeles faces its own tough test, however, as they host the Braves starting Monday.

Atlanta has been one of the hottest teams in all of baseball in August, taking control of the NL East after an underwhelming first four months coming off their 2020 NLCS berth.

Of course, the Dodgers beat the Braves in Game 7 of that series. This week’s series very well could be a precursor of a rematch this October.

Here’s how all 30 teams stack up in the MLB Power Rankings at the end of August.
