2023 MLB playoffs: Schedule, postseason bracket, standings

[ad_1]

The 2023 MLB playoffs are finally here after a season full of surprises.

This postseason will be our second look at the league’s new 12-team format, which boasts an additional wild-card spot in both the American League and National League. The fun begins with a jam-packed Tuesday with eight teams competing in four wild-card games on ESPN — and it’s sure to be just as exciting as last year’s wild-card weekend.

The AL playoff picture showed a shakeup on the final day of the season as the Texas Rangers fell from the top of the AL West to number one. 5 seeds. The sixth-seeded Toronto Blue Jays will face the AL Central champion Minnesota Twins, and the Rangers will travel to the Tampa Bay Rays in the wild-card round. The winner of the Blue Jays-Twins series will take on the defending World Series champion Houston Astros in the ALDS, and the winner of the Rangers-Race will play the no. 1-seeded Baltimore Orioles.

In the NL, the Arizona Diamondbacks face the Brewers in Milwaukee, with Victor set to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NLDS. Finally, the Philadelphia Phillies will host the Miami Marlins — who are making their first playoff appearance in a full 162-game season since winning the World Series in 2003. The winner will face the top-seeded Atlanta Braves.

From the first pitch of the wild-card game to the last out of the World Series, we’ve got you the postseason bracket, schedule, results and how to watch every postseason game this October.
