Minor league affiliates tracker: How MLB’s restructure shakes out

As part of its restructuring of the minor leagues, Major League Baseball formally issued invitations to fill each franchise’s four affiliated slots. The affiliations will not be official until the minor league teams sign agreements.

All 30 MLB franchises will have a Triple-A team, a Double-A team, a high Class A team and a low Class A team, along with a variety of developmental teams. The restructuring reduces the number of affiliated teams from 160 to 120.
