• The New Britain Rock Cats ended twenty years of affiliation with the Minnesota Twins as they signed a new two-year PDC with the Colorado Rockies. The Double-A team reached the Texas League Championship series this past year and has made the playoffs in each of the past three seasons. The move changes the makeup of the Eastern League for the first time since 2003.
