ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The Rochester Red Wings will no longer be the Triple-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, according to Red Wings officials.
Rochester had been Minnesota's top farm club since September 2002, and the clubs had spent 17 seasons together. The 2020 Minor League Baseball season was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Red Wings team officials said on a post on the club's website that they hope to have a new affiliate in the next few weeks, and are working with Major League Baseball.
“Our relationship with the Twins has been a good one. Dave St. Peter (Twins President/ CEO), in his call to inform me, stressed the deep appreciation the Twins have had for our relationship, and gratitude for our partnership. We will always have fond memories of our time spent as a Twins affiliate, but it’s exciting to contemplate the future in this new era of Red Wings Baseball,” said Red Wings president/CEO/COO Naomi Silver in a statement.
