Summary

Even if top prospects Casey Mize and Matt Manning rescue the club's mound staff, there isn't much hope for an offense that just lost slugger C.J. Cron to knee surgery.Factoring in that the Tigers haven't even played the AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins yet, their already crooked road to October doesn't figure to get any straighter.Chances: 15 percentRecord: 10-11 (3rd in AL West)The Texas Rangers weren't a long shot coming into the season. But with neither the Boston Red Sox nor Toronto Blue Jays playing well and plenty of uncertainty elsewhere in the American League, their Cinderella story might indeed end happily ever after.Chances: 50 percentRecord: 12-11 (3rd in AL Central)As of right now, the Chicago White Sox look like a team that belongs closely tethered to the .500 mark.To wit, both their offense and their pitching have been just about average. But if the White Sox congeal like they should, even the AL Central's second playoff spot will be within reach.Chances: 55 percentRecord: 13-9 (2nd in NL West)With the NL West's second playoff spot in hand, the Colorado Rockies merely need to stay where they are.Because this club lost 91 games in 2019, that may be seen as an iffy proposition.
