Although the Cleveland Indians have already qualified for the Play Offs, they can still have a big say on who joins them. They make the midweek trip to the Los Angeles Angels, who currently sit one place outside the Wild Card spots, before facing the Seattle Mariners at the weekend, with the Mariners just one place behind the Angels.
The Houston Astros, who have also qualified for the Play Offs, host bottom side Chicago White Sox ahead of weekend games against the Los Angeles Angels. Elsewhere, The Boston Red Sox can take a step closer to securing a Play Off place if they can win games at the Baltimore Orioles and Cincinnati Reds.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have qualified for the Play Offs and face the bottom sides in the National League as they travel to the Philadelphia Phillies before hosting the San Francisco Giants. The Washington Nationals are also qualified as they face games with the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets this week.
The Chicago Cubs are favourites to join the Dodgers and Nationals after five straight wins, and they will look to continue that form when they travel to the Tampa Bay Rays ahead of a visit to the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers sit just a place outside the Wild Card spots.

Elsewhere, the Arizona Diamondbacks can still make the Play Offs, but realistically need wins when they meet the San Diego Padres and Miami Marlins this week. The Colorado Rockies can also still make the Play Offs, but again must collect wins when they travel to bottom side San Francisco Giants, before visiting the San Diego Padres.
The Chicago Cubs are in great form, just at the right time of the season. They are a great shout to pick up wins at the Tampa Bay Rays, with the home side in inconsistent form.

The Arizona Diamondbacks are on a decent run, and could yet snatch a Play Off place. Facing two mid-table sides is just what the Diamondbacks will want and they are worth looking at to claim some important wins over the Padres and Marlins.
