Baseball Prospectus recently updated their Postseason Odds report, which is a lot of fun, to reflect their PECOTA projections. The Tigers come in at third place in the AL Central but they have a great then 31% chance of making the playoffs. One in three doesn’t sound all that great but it’s better then the less then 5% we’re used to getting. And then considering I think the Twins are set to take a fall, that should make out chances even better.
The project the Yankees as having the best chance of making the playoffs in the AL with a 54.2% chance. Over in the National League, no team has a great then 43% chance of making the playoffs.
