Early Predictions for 2013 MLB Playoff Teams, 25-Man Postseason Rosters

Can Yasiel Puig and Dodgers continue their winning ways throughout the playoffs?

We're less than three weeks away from the start of the playoffs—the NL Wild Card Game will take place on Tuesday, October 1 and the AL Wild Card Game will be played the following day—and things are still far from settled.

While the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves have been well ahead in their divisions for some time, and the Boston Red Sox are beginning to pull away in the AL East, the other divisions are still up for grabs. Three NL Central teams figure to win playoff berths, although they're only separated by three games in the standings. 

In the AL Central, the Detroit Tigers are still in good shape but losing ground as the Cleveland Indians still have a chance to close the gap. The AL West is a two-team race between Oakland and Texas with the odd team out still in good position for a wild-card berth. Along with the Indians, the Tampa Bay Rays, Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees and Kansas City Royals are still within three games of a playoff spot.

That's a total of 15 teams still vying for a postseason berth. So who will be the last 10 teams standing? I have made my predictions to go along with projected 25-man playoff rosters and analysis of each team.
