Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers have been a very good team this year. Despite their good play, they are likely going to be a wild card team.

Mitchell White went 4 innings and allowed 2 earned runs on Thursday.
Walker Buehler is the best pitcher on the Dodgers and he could very well win a Cy Young award. He is 12-2 with a 2.13 ERA. His last start was against the Angels where he went 6 innings and allowed 1 earned run. The Dodgers won this game 8-2.
