Carolina Mudcats purchased by Brewers

The Carolina Mudcats are now owned by the Milwaukee Brewers.  The Mudcats became a Brewers affiliate in 2017 and appear to remain one for a long time.  This continues the trend of major league teams purchasing High A franchises as half of the teams at that level are owned by their major league affiliate.  I don’t know if it because teams want to ensure that they keep a spot in that league, although many of the Florida State League teams serve as spring training homes as well, which is an additional factor.
