All signs point to Kernels seeking new affiliate

Cedar Rapids KernelsWith all Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim memorabilia stripped from the team store, it’s pretty clear the Cedar Rapids Kernels (Low Class A; Midwest League) are in the market for a new parent.

No surprise: the Kernels front office publicly said they were dissatisfied with the Angels and would probably not seek an extension of their player-development contract. So the actions of the team over the weekend, as noted by local media, isn’t a surprise.

Chatter in MiLB circles, while also noting that neither side can say anything in public, has the Kernels making a pitch for the MInnesota Twins. The Twins currently are affiliated with the Beloit Snappers (Low Class A; Midwest League), and it’s pretty clear the Twins will seek a new Low Class A farm team; the Twins have signed many other PDC extensions this season but chose not to do so in Beloit.

Here’s a look at the current affiliate status.
