(CBS) Two additional wild cards will be added for this season, meaning 10 teams will make the playoffs in Major League Baseball, according to a report.
FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal tweeted Wednesday: “Additional wild cards a ‘go’ for this season. Playoffs to expand from eight to 10 teams. Announcement tomorrow.”
The playoff expansion is the first since baseball split into three divisions in each league and added a wild card team in 1995.
