The MLB All-Star Game marks the unofficial midway point of the baseball season.
With the dog days of summer still ahead before some tense September baseball determines tight division races, it's a good point to take the temperature of the season and reexamine where every team stands before they push for the playoffs.
In the American League, the gap between the haves and the have-nots is wide — the Orioles and Royals might both lose 100 games, while either the Red Sox or Yankees have the potential to win 100 games and still have to play in the Wild Card game.
Meanwhile, in the National League, things are much tighter — an unexpected race has emerged in the NL East, and four teams are within four games of each other in the NL West.
Take a look below to see where every team stands heading into the All-Star break. Playoff expectation projections come from FiveThirtyEight.
