A source told KHOU 11 that nothing will be official until Major League Baseball announces its major overhaul of the minor league system.

The Astros currently have seven minor league affiliates:

  • Round Rock Express (AAA)
  • Corpus Christi Hooks (AA)
  • Fayetteville Woodpeckers (A Adv.)
  • Quad Cities River Bandits (A)
  • Tri-City ValleyCats (Class A Short Season)
  • Dominican Summer League Astros (Rookie)
  • Gulf Coast League Astros (Rookie)

The Skeeters entered the Atlantic League as an expansion team in 2010. The league is not affiliated with MLB. The Skeeters play at Constellation Field.
