Player Development Licenses

Starting with 2021, teams will sign 10 year player development licenses for their affiliations with a major league team. These licenses have now been signed and I will update this list with that information when it becomes available.

This list indicates when the Player Development License for each minor league team is set to expire. I discuss each PDL extension as they occur on the MinorLeagueSource.com Blog. If you have any information to help me out, I would appreciate if you sent me a message.
