Jamestown Jammers Moving to Morgantown, WV in 2015

The Jamestown Jammers will be moving to Morgantown, WV for the 2015 season.  This isn’t a surprise as this has been rumored for a few years.  It also mentions that it will be a Pirates affiliate, which makes the most sense, although I don’t see anything official about the PDC being extended.

Dodgers affiliating with Oklahoma?

There are reports that the Oklahoma RedHawks will be bought by a group that has contains one of the owners of the Dodgers and that they will become a Dodgers affiliate next season.  The Dodgers were looking for other options, so it looks like they found one.  Previously there was talk of the Rangers going to Oklahoma City, but it now looks like that won’t happen.

Based on information I’ve seen and some of my guesses, here’s what I suspect may happen with the AAA affiliations that expire this year:
Durham – Tampa BayNorfolk – Baltimore
Pawtucket – Boston
Rochester – Minnesota/NY Mets/Milwaukee
Albuquerque – Houston
Colorado Springs – Colorado
El Paso – San Diego
Fresno – Minnesota/NY Mets/Milwaukee
Las Vegas – Minnesota/NY Mets/Milwaukee
Nashville – Oakland
Oklahoma – LA Dodgers
Sacramento – San Francisco
Tacoma – Seattle

I think it will be a fight for Fresno and Rochester with the odd man out going to Las Vegas.  It is interesting to have this many affiliation swaps after things being fairly stable for a while.

The Royals have extended their player development contracts as follows:

Wilmington Blue Rocks through 2016

Lexington Legends through 2018

Burlington Royals through 2018

Idaho Falls Chukars through 2016

Looks like the Royals were pleased with their current situation and wanted to lock down all of their affiliates through 2016.

Peoria Chiefs extend PDC with Cardinals to 2020

The Peoria Chiefs have extended their player development contract with the Cardinals to 2020.  It appears that the Cardinals are glad to be back with Peoria.  I recently said that the Cardinals’ PDCs were set through 2016, so it looks like they are thinking even past that.
