The schedule for the 2023 Major League Baseball (MLB) postseason has been confirmed.
According to the data announced by the MLB Secretariat on the 9th (Korean time), this year’s MLB postseason begins with the first game of the two major league wild card series on October 4 and ends with the World Series, which will be held from October 28.
12 teams will advance to the 2023 MLB postseason.
The American League (AL) 1st place in the East Division, 1st place in the Central Division, and 1st place in the West Division will receive the right to participate.
Among the teams that did not finish first in the district, the three teams with the highest winning rate are also invited to the fall party as wild cards. The National League (NL) is the same.
The team with the lowest win rate among the top teams in each district and the three wild card teams will play a wild card series (2 wins from 3 games) from October 4th to 6th.
The team that won here and the two teams with the highest winning rates among the two league division champions will face off in the Division Series (3 wins in 5 games) from October 8th to 15th.
The 2 AL teams and 2 NL teams that won the Division Series will play the championship series of the two leagues (7 out of 4 wins). The AL starts on October 16th, and the NL starts on October 17th.
The World Series, in which the champions of the two leagues face each other, will be held in a 4-win system out of 7, and the first game will be held on October 28th.
As of the 8th, the Toronto Blue Jays, to which Ryu Hyun-jin (36) belongs, is 64-50 with an odds ratio of 0.561, ranking third in the AL Eastern Division.
It is difficult to win the first place title as they are seven games behind the district’s number one Baltimore Orioles, but they have a chance of advancing to the postseason as a wild card.
Toronto is third in the AL Wild Card standings and leads the fourth-place Seattle Mariners by three games.
If the current ranking is maintained, Ryu Hyun-jin can step on the postseason (PS) stage after 3 years after 2020.
Ryu Hyun-jin stood on the stage of the fall party in 2013, 2014, 2018 and 2019 when he was a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers. After he moved to Toronto, he competed in the 2020 Wild Card Series.
Toronto unfortunately failed to advance to the postseason in 2021, and Ryu Hyun-jin also failed to step on the fall stage.메이저사이트
Toronto advanced to the postseason last year, but Ryu Hyun-jin, who underwent elbow ligament joint surgery, had to watch from a distance.
The San Diego Padres, which belongs to Ha-seong Kim (27) and Ji-man Choi (32), has a 55-58 win rate of 0.487, 4th in the NL West and 7th in the NL Wild Card rankings.
It is too early to lose hope of advancing to the postseason as they are 4 games behind the Cincinnati Reds, the third place in the wild card.
Bae Ji-hwan’s team, the Pittsburgh Pirates, is 9th in the NL wild card, 7.5 games behind Cincinnati.
