Astros and Lexington Legends to part ways

Bummer out of Lexington today, as it appears that the Astros and Legends will end an affiliation that began with the Legends' inception in 2001.

Tomorrow marks two weeks since the end of the Legends season, and with it the window to renegotiate expiring PDCs - but it looks like it's over now.

So what now? The Astros need to find a full-season Low-A team - meaning another team in the South Atlantic League or the Midwest League. Hagerstown and Lexington were the only SAL teams not to announce a renewal. In the Midwest League, it looks as though Peoria (Illinois), Quad Cities (Iowa), and Cedar Rapids (Iowa) are going to be available.
