After winning the AL East and clinching the second-best record in the American League, the New York Yankees don't have any games scheduled for the first weekend of the 2022 MLB playoff schedule. As one of four teams with a bye to the division series, the Yankees have five days off before returning to action.

New York is scheduled to host Game 1 of the ALDS on Tuesday, Oct. 11.

The Yankees finished the regular season when they lost to the Texas Rangers on Wednesday. Their last game at Yankee Stadium was a Sunday loss to the Baltimore Orioles.

The Yankees will learn this weekend whether they're playing the Tampa Bay Rays or Cleveland Guardians. Cleveland is hosting Tampa Bay in a best-of-three wild-card series with a trip to the ALDS on the line.

There is a scheduled off-day in between Game 1 and Game 2. The Yankees will host Game 2 on Thursday before heading on the road. Game 3 will be played in Cleveland or Tampa Bay on Saturday, Oct. 15. If neither team pulls off a sweep, Game 4 will be played the following day.

A potential Game 5 is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 17 at Yankee Stadium. TBS will broadcast the entire series.

The Houston Astros, Toronto Blue Jays and Seattle Mariners are on the other side of the AL playoff bracket. The Yankees will play one of those teams if they advance to the ALCS.

The Yankees would have home-field advantage against either Seattle or Toronto. Houston has home-field advantage until the World Series.

The Yankees went 57-24 at Yankee Stadium during the regular season, tying them with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the best home record in baseball. New York had a 42-39 road record.

Prior to losing a pair of meaningless games to end the season, the Yankees had won 12 out of their last 15 games. Aaron Judge hit his record-setting 62nd home run of the season in the team's 161st contest.

Gerrit Cole is expected to be the Yankees Game 1 starter.
