We expect plenty of news about franchise sales this fall, and here's the first: Jeff Eiseman and Chris Schoen of Agon Sports and Entertainment are purchasing the Boise Hawks (short season A; Northwest League).
Boise Hawks sold to Eiseman, Schoen
Mariners to Bakersfield, Padres to Tri-City
Two more player development contracts to announce: Seattle Mariners/Bakersfield Blaze (High Class A; California League) and San Diego Padres/Tri-City Dust Devils (short season A; Northwest League), both through 2016.
Eugene, Cubs announce new player development contract
The official announcement: the Eugene Emeralds (short season A; Northwest League) and the Chicago Cubs announced a new two-year player development contract (PDC), through the 2016 season.
Lake Elsinore, San Diego announce PDC extension
No, we don't know why this didn't happen sooner: the San Diego Padres and the Lake Elsinore Storm (High Class A; California League) extended their player development contract (PDC) through 2016.
Short-season A open affiliations set
We'll be awaiting official press releases, but the three open short-season A affiliations are now set: Colorado Rockies to Boise Hawks, Chicago Cubs to Eugene Emeralds and San Diego Padres to Tri-City Dust Devils.
