The Dodgers are starting to take control of the NL West and are 7-3 in their last 10 games.
The Astros are falling behind in the AL West, but still have a Wild-Card spot in their hands.
Even though they lost a series to the Atlanta Braves, the Brewers are still clinging to a NL Central lead.
The Blue Jays are trying to keep pace in the AL East, but currently occupy the final AL Wild-Card spot by two games.
A recent five-game winning streak has closed the gap in the NL Central and has them as the top Wild-Card team.
A four-game losing streak puts them on the Wild-Card bubble and four games behind the Dodgers in the NL West.
The Phillies are only 0.5 games back in the Wild-Card, but have been more consistently recently.
A five-game losing streak for the Giants has made it much more difficult to try and chase down the Dodgers.
With just two wins in their last 10 games, the Marlins are starting to come back to Earth.
The Red Sox are keeping their playoffs hopes alive, having just won a series against the New York Mets.
The Yankees have won a couple games in a row, but drop to a fringe top 15 team because of their inconsistent offense and pitching.

The Tigers are technically still in the race for the division, but generally do not offer enough offense to keep pace with the Minnesota Twins.
The Pirates are completely ice cold after a hot start, pushing them down the standings almost every week.

Having still not reached 30 wins in July, the Athletics are rock bottom.
