The 2022 MLB Playoffs kicked off with a bang over the weekend. Three teams went on the road and upset their Wild Card matchups while the San Diego Padres and New York Mets series lived up to the hype. Baseball fans also witnessed a dramatic 15th-inning walk off homer from Oscar Gonzalez and the Cleveland Guardians.

In all, four teams punched their tickets to the ALDS and NLDS rounds. This leaves the bracket with eight teams vying for a chance at that coveted World Series trophy.

New MLB Playoff Format Bracket

The MLB revealed a brand-new postseason format for 2022, which includes the addition of one playoff spot in the form of a third Wild Card team from each league. With the bracket increasing from 10 teams to 12 teams, there's added competition and importance for the games down the stretch.

Fans are eager to know, what does the new postseason bracket officially look like? For starters, now two teams from both the American League and National League begin the playoffs with a first-round bye, the two division winners with the best records.

The third division winner will open up with a home Wild Card series against the final Wild Card team. The Wild Card round is now a best-of-three game series, with all three contests played at the home park of the higher seed.

From there, the ALDS and NLDS rounds continue on as previously scheduled, a best-of-five game series. The same applies to the ALCS, NLCS and World Series, but in the usual seven-game series formats.

Printable MLB Playoff Bracket

The Duel has put together a printable bracket that shows what the updated MLB Playoff bracket looks like heading into the NLDS and ALDS rounds.

The 1-seed Houston Astros (105-56) and 2-seed New York Yankees (99-62) earned first-round byes in the AL, while the 1-seed Los Angeles Dodgers (110-51) and 2-seed Atlanta Braves (101-60) rested up in the NL.

The 3-seed Guardians (91-70) punched their ticket to the ALDS after topping the Tampa Bay Rays in two games. They'll meet the Yankees in a best-of-five matchup. The 5-seed Seattle Mariners also earned a trip to the ALDS after beating the Toronto Blue Jays, two games to none. They'll match up with the 1-seed Astros.

On the NL side, the 5-seed Padres advanced in three games to set up a battle with the 1-seed Dodgers. The 6-seed Phillies upset the Cardinals in two games and will clash with the 2-seed Braves for a trip to the NLCS on the line.
