Both the American League and National League playoff races are really heating up. Some clear favorites have emerged in the race for the various division titles, but the Wild Card hunt is as competitive as ever.

The New York Yankees have been the hottest team in baseball and have surged all the way to the No. 1 Wild Card spot in the American League, now just 4.5 games out of the AL East lead. The San Diego Padres have faltered and now sit outside the NL playoff picture, being overtaken by the Cincinnati Reds for the second Wild Card spot.

While the MLB playoff picture can change on a daily basis, it's good the know where things stand at the beginning of each week.
