In Major League Baseball, the playoff picture is becoming a lot clearer - in the American League, the Cleveland Indians have clinched the Central Division championship and the Houston Astros have clinched the Western Division championship. The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees have both clinched playoff berths, though the Eastern Division championship is yet to bd determined.

In the National League, the Washington Nationals have clinched the Eastern Division championship, while the Los Angeles Dodgers have won the Western Division. The Arizona Diamondbacks have clinched a playoff berth, but while it looks like the Chicago Cubs are likely to win the NL Central, they can’t mathematically do so for another cup of days.
