Each year in MLB there are a few teams that stand out among the rest.
This season, two teams in each league stand out the most.
In the National League, those are the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers.
In the American League, there are the Baltimore Orioles and Tampa Bay Rays.
According to FOX Sports: MLB, those four teams are the only ones to clinch a playoff berth so far this year.

The Braves and Dodgers have already clinched their respective divisions.
While the Orioles and Rays are still battling it out in the AL East.
Currently, Baltimore has a two-game lead over the Rays with two weeks left in the season.
Whoever ends up winning the division will also be the number-one seed in the AL.
All four of these teams have the potential to win the World Series.
Looking at their rosters and how well they play together, these teams will be tough to beat in a playoff series.
The Orioles are the only team of the four that does not have much postseason experience.
The last time we saw Baltimore in the playoffs was in 2016 when they lost in the Wild Card round.
Most of the young players on their current roster have never played in the playoffs.
It will be interesting to see if that helps or hinders them come October.
No one should be surprised if two of these teams are meeting in the World Series.
They have been the best all year and now have to battle it out in the postseason.
