2016 MLB Playoff Standings

The 2016 MLB Playoffs will be here before you know it. As we start to head into late August, the MLB Playoff standings are starting to heat up. The race looks to be tight in both the American and National leagues to earn a spot in either the Wild Card matchups that will be held on October 6th, or to win their division and earn a spot in the Divisional series of play. As teams race to earn one of the five playoff spots in each league, we’ll update the standings for fans to use to follow their favorite teams. We also have a printable 2016 MLB Playoff Bracket that you can go ahead and use to help follow the action. We are all interested to see if this is finally the year the Chicago Cubs break through and earn a World Series berth, or if one of the other teams in the mix will ultimately be crowned the World Series champions once the Series kicks off on October 26th.
