CHICAGO (AP) The Chicago Cubs are moving their top Class A affiliate from Daytona in the Florida State League to Myrtle Beach in the Carolina League.
The team made the announcement Tuesday.
Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein says the team thinks the Carolina League is the best high-A league for its purposes and provides the best situation for the organization's minor league players and their development.
Daytona had served as the Cubs' home for their high-Class A farm team for the past 22 years. But unlike most of the major league teams with affiliates in the Florida State League, the Cubs hold spring training in Arizona rather than Florida.
