Pensacola Blue Wahoos sign PDC with Twins to 2020

The Pensacola Blue Wahoos have signed a player development contract with the Twins to 2020.  This is the final affiliate change as the window has closed for any changes in this cycle.  As a result, I updated the items that were unknown on my list to remain with their current team, even though I never saw an official contract announcement.  Although I’m sure a few will come out in the next few days.

Overall, there were 10 teams that changed affiliations, and 5 were at the AAA level.  There was a two-team switch at AA and a three-way move at Low A.  I know there are others out there like myself who find this time interesting, but it does seem like we are getting to the point where all teams are happy with where they are (except maybe the Nationals in Fresno).  But 150 of 160 teams kept the same affiliation, so that shows strong relationships.

The new Texas League team in Amarillo has extended their player development contract with the Padres to 2020.  The Padres had their AA Texas League affiliate in San Antonio since 2007 and that will move along with the team to Amarillo next season.

Lake Elsinore Storm extend PDC with Padres to 2020

The Lake Elsinore Storm have extended their player development contract with the Padres to 2020.  The Storm have been a Padres affiliate since 2001.  I guess the Padres just wanted to wait until the end to make contract extensions.

Chattanooga Lookouts sign PDC with Reds to 2020

The Chattanooga Lookouts have signed a player development contract with the Reds to 2020.  The Lookouts were a Reds affiliate from 1988 to 2008.  There are still 4 unsigned PDCs at the AA level.  This helps me because my first instinct has been that the Reds AA team was in Chattanooga ever since they left.

West Virginia Power sign PDC with Mariners to 2020

The West Virginia Power have signed a player development contract with the Mariners to 2020.  This is the first time that the Mariners have had a team in the South Atlantic League.  The one nice aspect is that fans on the east coast can again see one of the Mariners teams play, which they haven’t been able to do since the Mariners left Pulaski after the 2014 season.

Beloit Snappers extend PDC with A’s to 2020

The Beloit Snappers have extended their player development contract with the A’s to 2020.  The Snappers have been an A’s affiliate since 2013.  I list 4 teams at the Low A level as having expiring contracts, although I don’t see Dayton as being in play.  I could see the White Sox moving their affiliation much closer to Chicago by going to Kane County, but Kannapolis is getting a new stadium soon and is closer to their AAA affiliate in Charlotte.
