Arizona Diamondbacks Minor League teams mid-season update!
By Jake Oliver
Arizona Diamondbacks Minor League System Review/Update
The Arizona Diamondbacks and the rest of the MLB changed a lot about their Minor Leagues this past year. The MLB shuffled around teams, eliminating a good amount of teams in order to better organize the minors. Due to this, the Arizona Diamondbacks got a new Double-AA team, a new-ish High-A and Low-A teams. They also lost three teams from the past, Jackson Generals (Double-AA), Kane-County Cougars (Low-A), and Missoula Paddleheads (Rookie Level).
The MLB eliminated the short-season levels from the Minor Leagues which is why the Paddleheads are not with the Diamondbacks anymore. The Cougars and Generals did not get chosen by the Diamondbacks to come back. Instead, the Diamondbacks chose to change their order of their Minor League teams. They also brought in a new team as well. These teams will be revealed over the course of this slideshow along with their record, manager, and any top prospects that the Arizona Diamondbacks have. You might be seeing more of these young players soon after the MLB Trade Deadline!
With that said, we will go in order of the highest leagues to the lowest. The MLB’s order of teams in the Minor Leagues go Triple-AAA (Not the auto help company), Double-AA, High-Single-A, Low-Single-A, and then Rookie-Level Arizona League which is just at Salt River Fields.
