Quick question about the minor-league playoffs

I'm putting this up as a fanpost instead of a fanshot so that people see it and I can get my answer.

As many know, I'm a sports reporter for a small-town newspaper. A kid who graduated from the local high school went to Kansas University for four years and then got drafted by the A's and sent to short-season class A Vancouver. In 29.1 innings over 20 appearances, he allowed zero runs. He just got promoted to Kane County in the Midwest League. Kane County is 69-60 overall and in third place in the division overall (6.0 games behind) , is 28-31 and in fourth place in the division for the second half (8.5 behind) and won the first-half title. There are 11 regular-season games left.

My question: Is Kane County going to the playoffs or are they in contention for the playoffs? I can't find how the playoff teams are decided for the midwest league.

I'm going to do a small write-up for Friday's paper (we're published Wednesday and Friday) with a file photo from his days at Kansas and I wanted to see if he got promoted for a playoff race or if he just got a "cup of coffee" in low-A as a reward for tearing up short-season A.

Thanks in advance.
