New Kissimmee franchise signs PDC with Braves to 2020

The new Kissimmee franchise in the Florida State League have signed a player development contract with the Braves to 2020.  There are now 6 PDCs that expire at the end of the season at the High A level.

Based on the name the team entries, it appears that the team will be known as the Florida ‘something’.  Personally, I prefer when teams use the city names that they play in rather than going by the state they are in, since the Florida team in the Florida State League where all teams are in Florida doesn’t really make sense to me.

With this announcement, here’s how I would project the rest of the High A affiliations to play out:

Charlotte stays with the Rays

Wilmington stays with the Royals

New Carolina League that eventually goes to Fayetteville will be the Astros affiliate

Modesto becomes the Mariners affiliate (they are expected to purchase the team)

Lancaster becomes the Rockies affiliate (as they want to stay in the California League)

Carolina Mudcats become the Brewers affiliate (since that’s what’s left)

The Ogden Raptors have extended their player development contract with the Dodgers to 2018.  Now, 2 of the 18 PDCs at the Rookie level expire this year.  With this announcement, the Pioneer League affiliates will remain unchanged.  That shouldn’t be a surprise because the last time there was an affiliation change in the Pioneer League was in the 2004 season.

San Antonio Missions extend PDC with Padres to 2018

The San Antonio Missions have extended their player development contract with the Padres to 2018.  There are now 7 PDCs at the AA level which are expiring this year.  There has been talk about San Antonio getting a AAA team (relocating from Colorado Springs) and the Missions moving to either Amarillo, Lubbock or Wichita.  It sounds like this probably wouldn’t happen until the 2019 season, if it falls into place.
