MLB Players League Highlights and Recaps
Jeff McNeil (New York Mets) is closing in on punching his playoff ticket after a 3-1 night Wednesday, moving his overall record to an impressive 14-4. Fernando Tatis Jr. (San Diego Padres) sits at 13-6 after taking two of three and ranks seventh in winning percentage, with ust 10 games left in the regular season. Although Dwight Smith Jr. (Baltimore Orioles) also went 2-1 Wednesday and has put up monster performances, he’s currently in ninth in the standings — only the top eight men reach the postseason — with only seven matchups left to play.
Through two weeks, a few teams look like locks to advance. Joey Gallo (Texas Rangers) lost his perfect record this week, but he’s still out in front with a 17-3 mark. Blake Snell (Tampa Bay Rays), McNeil, Gavin Lux (Los Angeles Dodgers) and Lucas Giolito (Chicago White Sox) are in great position to qualify with more than half of their games completed. Bo Bichette (Toronto Blue Jays) is doing great at 9-3, but he’s played nearly half as many games as some teams. The next seven days will be crucial for teams who are on the playoff bubble.
