There was an interesting note in the BA article about Frederick, listing them and Trenton as fallback options in case one of the 120 rejects the invite. Frederick especially is in territory covered by all classifications and would make for an easy substitution. I guess they're kind of like the bubble "first team out" in the NCAA basketball tournament.

Until last night, Ballpark Digest had Frederick as the likely Orioles AA affiliate.

We should learn a lot more about this by the end of today. First news of the day is Baseball America reporting that the Frederick Keys will become the sixth member of the MLB Draft League. Some had previously speculated Frederick would be the Orioles Double-A affiliate.


Im a bit surprised at this as the Keys provide a great experience and have good community support. Also helps they are an hour from Baltimore and would receive more rehab appearances than AA Bowie, which was closer to Baltimore.

Baseball America is also speculating that Frederick will be used as a back-up plan if other teams decline their invites to become affiliates:

The addition of Frederick to the MLB Draft League also provides a pair of “parked” teams for MLB that could fill in any holes that come open.

There is no guarantee that all 120 invited teams will end up signing the Professional Development License contract. If not all do, Trenton and Frederick have two viable facilities in convenient geographical situations that provide back-up plans in the case any East Coast team declines to sign.

If you go to a Nashville game, I recommend Von Elrod's for pre and post-game festivities.

Interesting to see Marlins in Beloit and paired with Pensacola at AA.

Was thinking the same thing (re: Miami Marlins)..

I think we also see where Fresno ends up (w/ Colorado) if they accept the move to A ball level...

So if Fresno declines, the move is Lancaster back into affiliated ball?

Burlington, Clinton, and Kane County - Move to Indy league like AA or perhaps something like the Northwoods?

Just noticed the Padres "replaced" the Brewers in San Antonio. Surprised they left the new digs in Amarillo, but San Antonio was their long-time AA affiliate, so I guess not a huge surprise by this.

Yeah, that's wild. Most of the High A teams in the East/South were already spoken for, and I guess the Astros wanted both A teams regionalized in North Carolina. Would've made more sense to get the Pirates into the MWL (Lansing, with the A's staying in Beloit?) and the Marlins in Greensboro, though the Marlins were there previously, and I don't think the relationship ended all that well.

I believe some of these types of changes could still come in the future.

I am really looking forward to watching High-A baseball in Appleton and Beloit going forward. It will probably take a little getting used to at first remembering Carolina is now the Low-A affiliate, but a good change for those that follow Midwest League baseball.

Also a much better situation for the Brewers now having Nashville back as their Triple-A affiliate.

Yeah this worked out great for the Brewers. New facilities in Biloxi and Nashville and they remain in Appleton which actually moves up a level. Looking forward to watching Mitchell there this summer.
