I'm posting the link below because it is somewhat relevant to this thread. The link is from Baseball America and written by David Hall of the Kinston Free Press. The article is on the Carolina Mudcats twitter page. Apparently Steve Bryant, owner of the Carolina Mudcats, has committed to helping Kinston get a minor league team. Knowing this, I would not rule out a return of MiLB to Kinston.
