Remarkably, the last time a team was able to claim this title was back in 2016. This season brings an end to a six-year playoff streak.

The Yankees are also on pace to finish with their worst record since 1992.

In contrast, as things stand today, the Diamondbacks are on the brink of securing their first playoff berth since 2017.

This stark disparity between the two teams serves as a compelling illustration of just how unpredictable and unusual the 2023 MLB season has been.

The Diamondbacks are set to conclude their series against the Yankees tomorrow morning at 10:15 AM with Merrill Kelly taking the mound.
