2022 MLB postseason, Guardians-Yanks, Mariners-Astros watch info


The MLB postseason is in full swing after an exciting opening weekend.

The AL Wild Card Series included two sweeps, but the games didn’t lack excitement. On one side, the Mariners defeated the Blue Jays after overcoming an 8-1 deficit on the road. In the other series, it took 15 innings for the Guardians to eliminate the Rays.

There are just four teams remaining with a chance to win the American League pennant. The field includes three division winners and one wild card team.

Here’s the full schedule, watch info, format and odds for the American League Division Series:

Who is in the ALDS and how did they get there?

After the new-look Wild Card Series, the postseason is business as usual.

As has been the case since 1995, the Division Series consists of four teams – the three division winners and a wild card team. It won’t always be that way under the new format, where the worst division winner plays in the Wild Card Series, but it worked out this year.

The Houston Astros (106-56) and New York Yankees (99-63) automatically advanced to the ALDS by virtue of being the two best division winners. As aforementioned, the Seattle Mariners and Cleveland Guardians also advanced after winning in the Wild Card Series.

Here are the ALDS teams and matchups:

No. 1 Astros (AL West champ) vs. No. 5 Mariners (AL Wild Card No. 2)

No. 2 Yankees (AL East champ) vs. No. 3 Guardians (AL Central champ)

How many games is the ALDS?

There are no changes to the ALDS format under the new collective bargaining agreement signed in March. Each series will be a best-of-five format.

The higher seed will host Games 1 and 2 before the lower seed hosts Game 3. If necessary, the lower seed hosts Game 4 and the higher seed hosts Game 5.

When does the ALDS start?

The ALDS will start on Tuesday, Oct. 11, with series getting underway in Houston and New York.
