2022 MLB Stadium set with secured seeds: Wild Card Series schedule and format explained

2022 MLB Stadium set with secured seeds: Wild Card Series schedule and format explained
USATSI

With the regular season over, all that’s left is to wait for Friday and the post-season.

Here’s how it would look.

American League

The Wild Card series will be three matches in the same stadium without travel. There will be no reclassification either, so the Rays-Guardians series winner faces the Yankees at ALDS while the Mariners-Blue Jays winner heads to Houston.

For a full analysis of the new format, we’ve got you covered.

National League

As noted, there is no re-implantation after the first round. It’s a locked slide, so the winner of the Padres-Mets gets the Dodgers in the NLDS while the winner of the Phillies-Cardinals series gets the defending champion Braves.

Individual play times haven’t been set yet, but we know that all four Wild Card series will be played on Friday and Saturday, and if necessary, the third game will be played on Sunday.
