Parity has been the story of the 2014 season.
With a little more than two months remaining in the regular season, the Detroit Tigers are the only team with division lead greater than three games, as they currently hold a seven-game advantage over the Kansas City Royals in the American League Central.
Elsewhere in the AL, the Orioles hold a three-game lead over the Yankees and Blue Jays in the East, while the A’s sit three games ahead of the Angels in the West. In the National League, both the Dodgers and Nationals lead the East and West by 1.5 games, respectively, and the Brewers are three games up on the Pirates and Cardinals in the Central.
Overall, there currently are 15 teams that have at least a 21 percent chance of reaching the playoffs, according to Baseball Prospectus’ postseason probabilities, via MLB.com.
