Following Tuesday night’s slate of games around the league, we now know who will be playing who at the outset of the 2022 MLB postseason. For the Dodgers, they’ll be playing the winner of the NL Wild Card series featuring the San Diego Padres and New York Mets.

After today’s final tune-up, Los Angeles will have five days off before the division series where they’ll host the winner of that Wild Card showdown.
Aside from the Cleveland Guardians, every team heading to the postseason entered the regular season with playoff expectations. The Mets perhaps underperformed, eventually losing what was once a stranglehold on the NL East division in the last weekend of the season.
New playoff format made baseball exciting into the last week of the season with some seeding still remaining. Definitely a huge win for baseball.
