It’s a technicality, really, so we present it here for the record: The New York Yankees and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders (Class AAA; International League) extended their player development contract through 2020.
It’s a technicality because the Yankees are the majority owner of the RailRiders, so there’s little danger of the affiliation ending unless the Yankees sell the team.
You can read more about the current state of affiliations on our Affiliate Dance page. We expect a number of player development contracts to be renewed in the coming week, but there are always intriguing openings at every level of baseball. As you can see on the Affiliate Dance page, MLB and MiLB teams can renew their existing affiliations at any point through this coming weekend. After that, teams can file to search new affiliation options, so there’s always a shuffle of sorts at the end of the year.
