Dodgers officially cut ties with Triple-A Albuquerque

Eric Stephen | True Blue LA

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The Dodgers haven't yet announced their 2015 Triple-A home, long expected to be Oklahoma City, but the one thing we do know, officially, is that the Dodgers will no longer be affiliated with the Albuquerque Isotopes.

Isotopes general manager John Traub will hold a press conference at Wednesday at Isotopes Park at 1:30 p.m. PT to announce the team's affiliation with a yet-to-be-announced new major league team, the minor league team announced on Tuesday.

The Dodgers were affiliated with the Isotopes for the last six seasons, their second time affiliated with Albuquerque. The Dodgers were partners with the Albuquerque Dukes from 1963-2000, the first nine of which as a Double-A franchise, then 29 years as a Triple-A team until the Dodgers moved in 2001 to Las Vegas, where they stayed through 2008 before returning to New Mexico.

The Dodgers have renewed player development contracts with advanced Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, Class-A Great Lakes and rookie-level Ogden, all through 2016.

In addition to Triple-A as of yet unannounced, the Dodgers haven't yet announced their Double-A affiliation, with Tulsa, Mobile, New Britain and Chattanooga all possibilities.
