    Farm Team Primer

    I know what the Reds farm teams are but is there a specific way players move through those teams? Is a player moving to the Sarasota Reds from the Dragons a move up, down, lateral or you can't compare? Thanks!

    It depends, since there are two Reds Minor League affiliates in Sarasota. The GCL Reds are a rookie league team based there. Dayton is Low-A, which is higher than the rookie league. The Sarasota Reds are the High-A affiliate, which is higher than Dayton.

    The full list of Reds ml affiliates can be found here:

    The only one I'm not sure if is which is higher in the Rookie Leagues, the GCL Reds or Billings?

    I think the GCL Reds ( in Sarasota, FL) are the lower Rookie League
    The the Billings Mustangs the higher Rookie League team
    Dayton Dragons (Low A)
    Sarasota Reds (High A)
    Chattanooga Lookouts (AA)
    Louisville RiverBats (AAA)

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong on the Rookie league levels.

    You are correct, except Louisville is just the Bats, not RiverBats
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    So they are. Didn't they start out as the RiverBats?

    Yep, changed a couple years back.
