2022 Minor League Baseball Playoff Tracker



With September in full swing, minor league schedules across the country are winding down. The length of classifications’ seasons were staggered this year, so the remaining slates vary from league to league, but the postseason is drawing closer in all cases.

Here, Baseball America will track each leagues’ playoff berths and results as they happen. Champions have already been crowned in the Rookie levels, where the DSL Phillies West, ACL Giants Black and FCL Yankees each took home titles.

The Class A leagues are currently playing their last regular-season series. Double-A teams have one more series next week. Triple-A leagues finish their regular season on Sept. 28.

Several teams have already clinched their postseason spots. The entire field in the Low-A Carolina League, in fact, is set. Lynchburg will face Fredericksburg in the Northern Division and reigning-champion Charleston will take on Myrtle Beach in the Southern Division.

As it stands, here are the clubs who have earned playoff spots as well as a chart tracking which organizations have the most affiliates in the postseason.
