In 2023, the Minnesota Twins won their first playoff game since 2002. They’re now firmly in the 2024 MLB playoff picture.

Twins Playoff Chances

The Twins playoff odds are -550, which implies a 84.62% chance of making the postseason.

Their playoff odds are the second-shortest in the AL Central:

  • Guardians: -2500
  • Twins: -550
  • Royals: +165
  • Tigers: +1500
  • White Sox: Off the Board

Twins Playoff Seed

If the postseason began today, the Twins would be a Wild Card team. They’re 4.5 games behind the Cleveland Guardians for the division lead in the AL Central.

In fitting fashion, the Twins are currently slated to travel to the New York Yankees in a best-of-three Wild Card Series.

Here’s the current AL bracket:

Last Time the Twins Made the Playoffs

The Twins made the playoffs in 2023, earning a 2-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays in the AL Wild Card Series before dropping a 3-1 decision to the Houston Astros in the ALDS.

Minnesota’s win over Toronto marked its first playoff victory since besting the Oakland Athletics in the 2002 ALDS.
