OT: Arkansas Travelers have new parent club

The Travelers ended their relationship with the Angels today and signed an agreement with the Mariners. Shockingly, this puts the Mariners a little closer to their Double-A team. It was previously in Tennessee.

Good move for the Travs. I have seen several descriptions of the Angels as having the worst minor league system in MLB this year (which IIRC was also true of St. Louis during the Travs’ final years in the Cardinals’ system). Getting some better players would help. Jackson (the old Seattle AA team) won its division in the Southern League this year.
