Dodgers extend two affiliate agreements through 2014

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers extended their affiliates agreements with Triple-A Albuquerque and Single-A Rancho Cucamonga through the 2014 seasons on Thursday.

The Dodgers returned to Albuquerque in 2009, having stationed their Triple-A team there from 1972-2000 and winning eight Pacific Coast League titles.

"We're very excited to extend our relationship with Ken Young, John Traub and the Isotopes," said Dodgers assistant general manager De Jon Watson. "These two franchises have a storied history together, and we're happy to continue our relationship with the city of Albuquerque with its top-notch facilities and passionate fan base."

This is the Dodgers' second season at Rancho Cucamonga. The Quakes are owned by Bobby, George and John Brett.

"Brett Sports & Entertainment has been a great partner, and we're thrilled to continue our relationship," Watson said. "The improvements to their playing surface and upgrades to the stadium have made the Epicenter a great place to groom our future Dodgers."

The Dodgers' Minor League affiliates in Chattanooga, Great Lakes and Ogden are also under contract through the 2014 season.
