The most likely scenario over the next 10 games is a record of 6-4 (25% chance). Their chances of winning 8 or more are 9.6%. At #3 in the league, they are behind the Astros by half a point. Their projected wins (5.56) over the next 10 games is virtually the same so we do not expect a change in standings in the near term. They are ahead of the Rays by 2.5 points. With a -0.69 disadvantage in projected wins over their next 10 games they may find the gap between them closing.
