                New format Breakdown

                  Ahead of the 2022 campaign, MLB introduced a new kind of postseason tournament format, expanding the number of wild-card teams from two to three per league.

                  The single-elimination wild card game from 2012 to 2019 and again in 2021 has been replaced by two best-of-three wild cards series replaced.

                  Here is a breakdown of how the team will be seeded:

                    Do not. Seed No. 1:

                      Best AL/NL Record
                      Do not. Seed No. 2:
                      Division 2

                      Do not. Seed No. 3:

                        Division 3rd

                        Do not. 4th seed:

                          Best record among wild card teams

                        Do not. 5th seed:

                          Second best record among wild card teams

                        1. Do not. No. 6 seed: 3rd best record among wild card teams
                        2. The top two seeds in each league will receive a first-round bye and automatically advance to the divisional series. The No. 3 seed plays against the No. 6 seed, and the No. 4 seed plays against the No. 5 seed to decide the winner.

                          The format of the Division Series, Championship Series and World Series will remain the same.

                                      in a On point, it looked like the Yankees were running away with an AL lead, but the post-All-Star slump left the team with a 10-20 record and a 5-14 record in August since the Midsummer Classic.

                                      Still, the Yankees and Astros are basically locked in for a playoff spot in the AL, but one of these teams is Outside games are getting really interesting, and the current situation may look very different in the coming weeks.

                                      As for the NL, the Dodgers and Mets are likely to have a first-round bye, it’s hard to imagine either of those Cardinals ,​​The Phillies or Padres lost a playoff berth to the Brewers or Giants.
