The Los Angeles Dodgers will be the No. 2 seed in the National League in the 2023 postseason. The NL West winners were technically fighting with the Atlanta Braves for the top spot and home-field advantage, although it seemed pretty clear the Braves would get that spot. And ultimately, they did, thanks to back-to-back comeback wins against the Chicago Cubs to solidify the No. 1 seed.
The Dodgers are officially locked into the No. 2 seed, meaning they’ll have a first-round bye and home-field advantage in the NLDS, but will have to travel to Atlanta if both teams advance to the NLCS.
It also means we know who they may play in that NLDS round.
The Milwaukee Brewers will be the No. 3 seed as NL Central champs, and they’ll likely face either the Cubs or Miami Marlins, who are battling for the No. 6 seed. That means, the Dodgers will likely face one of those three teams, with the Brewers having the advantage being the home team for all three Wild Card games.
The Dodgers have absolutely dominated the Brewers this year, going 5-1 in the six games they’ve played. However, as we saw last year, regular season results don’t matter in the slightest when it comes to October.
While we don’t yet know who the Dodgers will officially play in the postseason, we know they won’t be playing the Philadelphia Phillies, who are locked into the No. 4 seed in the National League. Considering how hot they are right now and what they were able to do last year, that feels like a miniature win.
