According to Michael Baldwin of The Oklahoman, the Dodgers will have a new home for their Triple-A affiliate when the 2015 season begins. Currently in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the Dodgers’ Triple-A players will play their home games in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma next season.
Baldwin writes that a group affiliated with the Dodgers is finalizing a purchase of the Oklahoma RedHawks, the current affiliate of the Houston Astros. Reportedly, Mandalay Baseball Properties will receive between $22-28 million in the deal.
The Dodgers aren’t the only team that could swap affiliates. The Athletics could move their Triple-A affiliate to Nashville while the Giants take Sacramento, formerly of the A’s, from Fresno.
