The Major League Baseball postseason kicked off on Friday with the all-new Wild Card Series. MLB is using a 12-team playoff format for the first time in 2022, with eight teams participating in the best-of-three Wild Card Series. The Rangers became the first team to win a Wild Card Series, sweeping the Rays with a 1-0 marathon victory on Saturday afternoon. The rest of the slate has Blue Jays-Mariners, Mets-Padres and Cardinals-Phillies. The Mariners, Padres and Phillies all have a chance to move on to the LDS circle.

The top two teams in each league (the Astros and Yankees in the American League and the Dodgers and Braves in the National League) have been bye and will begin their postseason journeys in the LDS round next week. After teams clear the Wild Card Series, the playoffs will resemble their traditional selves: a best-of-five Division Series and then a best-of-seven League Championship Series before the best-of-seven World Series.

Below you will find the schedule and results for each round of the postseason.
