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.

Colorado Springs to remain Brewers affiliate in Pioneer League

According to Brewers MLB.com beat writer Adam McCalvy, the new Colorado Springs team in the Pioneer League relocating from Helena, MT will remain a Brewers affiliate.  Still waiting for the official announcement for the length of the contract, but I’ll update my list accordingly.

Greensboro Grasshoppers sign PDC with Pirates to 2020

The Greensboro Grasshoppers have signed a player development contract with the Pirates to 2020.  This was more surprising to me because I would have thought the Pirates were happy with their affiliate in Charleston, WV which isn’t all that far away from Pittsburgh, or their NY-Penn League team in Morgantown.  But maybe they didn’t want both teams that were named West Virginia in their system.  By the way, I’m still don’t know why Minor League Baseball would agree to having both the Power and Black Bears be called West Virginia.

Clinton LumberKings sign PDC with Marlins to 2020

The Clinton LumberKings have signed a player development contract with the Marlins to 2020.  I was a little surprised to see the Marlins leave the South Atlantic League for the Midwest League, although the available affiliates for them weren’t all that close and the league footprint doesn’t make it down to Florida.  The Marlins last had a Midwest League affiliate in 2002.

Round Rock Express sign PDC with Astros to 2022

The Round Rock Express have signed a player development contract with the Astros to 2022.  We knew that the Express would be the Astros AAA affiliate, but were waiting on the announcement to see the contract length.  Interesting to see some four year agreements in the Pacific Coast League for teams to lock in their affiliations.  Round Rock was the Astros AAA affiliate from 2005-2010 and the Astros AA affiliate from 2000-2004.

Inland Empire 66ers of San Bernardino extend PDC with Angels to 2022

The Inland Empire 66ers of San Bernardino have extended their player development contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to 2022.  The 66ers have been an Angels affiliate since 2011.  This leaves only two High A affiliations unaccounted for and I don’t see those two switching.
