Brewers keep relationship with Colorado Springs, but for rookie-advanced league

It won't be for triple-A baseball, but the Milwaukee Brewers will still send some of its prospects through Colorado Springs on the way to the big club.

The Colorado Springs Sky Sox announced that the team is taking over the operations of the rookie-advanced transition league team from the Helena Brewers. That relationship will last through 2020 in the Pioneer League.

Previously, the Sky Sox organization acted as the Brewers' AAA affiliate, but San Antonio has taken over for that level of the Brewers' minor league system.

"We are excited to continue the partnership with the Elmore Sports Group as they usher in a new era of professional baseball in Colorado Springs," said Brewers Farm Director Tom Flanagan in a team statement.

"Fans will sense the excitement of rookie level baseball, as our players will make their affiliated baseball debut at Security Service Field. Colorado Springs will be an excellent first stop on their journey to the Major Leagues."

Helena served the Brewers' organization for 32 of the past 34 years.
