Since the contraction of Minor-League baseball to 120 teams, we’ve compiled a list of Minor-League affiliates.
Most teams have started making their announcements about their affiliations. That list may not be final but here is a list and I have updated it with the teams that we know. The teams are listed by Divisions and in Alphabetical order.
MLB has announced that all 120 of these teams have accepted their Player Development License offers.
List of Minor-League affiliates
*indicates the team was in Independent baseball.
Some of these affiliations are the same. Some have gone to Independent Leagues, some have gone from Independent Leagues to affiliated ball and others like the Staten Island Yankees have folded and are suing their former parent clubs.
Notable for Texas: The Round Rock Express will become their new Triple-A affiliate. The Down East Wood Ducks and Hickory Crawdads are switching leagues.
The Nashville Sounds become the Milwaukee Brewers new Triple-A affiliate. The San Antonio Missions were their previous affiliate and are now with the Padres as their Double-A affiliate.
The Amarillo Sod Poodles first year in 2019, they were affiliated with the San Diego Padres. They are now an affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The San Antonio Missions were the Triple-A team for the Milwaukee Brewers.
The Fresno Grizzlies will move from Triple-A to Low-A, which is a significant drop.
The teams have until February 10, 2021 to decide whether they will accept the offers or not.
This is the list of Minor-League affiliates and will be updated.
