There is just one month left in the 2014 MLB regular season, and while the playoff picture is starting to take shape, there is still a lot to be decided between now and October.

In the National League, there are a total of eight teams that can still be called legitimate contenders. The Washington Nationals and Los Angeles Dodgers look like safe bets to win their respective divisions, but the NL Central is still up for grabs, and both wild-card slots are wide open.

The American League picture is similarly cloudy, as there are nine teams that can be called contenders. The Baltimore Orioles, Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels look to be in a good position to be playing in October, but the AL Central and AL West are still up for grabs, and the second wild-card spot behind whoever loses out in the AL West is as tight as any race.

What follows is a look at each team's chances of reaching the postseason, with the following factors taken into account.

  • Recent performance
  • Key players lost or returning from injury
  • Remaining schedule

So with one full month of baseball to go, here is a division-by-division look at the playoff chances of all 30 MLB teams.
