Affiliate Dance: 2016

Ballpark DigestWhat teams have upcoming affiliation deals, and which ones are tied long-term to their parent teams? We list them all here in anticipation of the next affiliation dance, due for the 2015 season.

Every two years MLB and MiLB teams renew their affiliation deals. Here’s a current listing of the affiliate status for all MLB and MiLB teams.

A player-development contract between a Minor League Baseball team and a Major League Baseball team runs for at least two years, through the end of an even-numbered season. The assumption is that both sides will honor the current deal before deciding to embark on a new deal.

Affiliates do not change often, so the assumption is that the current team partnerships will be extended. Let us know about any updates to this list.
