Angels switch Class A affiliate, but stay in Iowa
ANAHEIM -- The Angels announced Tuesday that they have parted ways with their Class A affiliate in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and have instead signed a two-year player-development contract with the Burlington Bees, also of Iowa.

The Angels' Class A affiliate resided in Cedar Rapids for the last 20 years, with players from Jarrod Washburn to Mike Trout coming through there. The Angels are the Bees' 14th Major League affiliation since 1962.

"We maintain an organizational commitment to building excellence at both the Major and Minor League levels, while placing a high value on strong communities and affiliations in the process," Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said in a statement. "With this in mind, we are excited to welcome the good people of Burlington to the Angels family, while looking forward to a long and successful partnership."

The Angels' Rookie Level (Orem), advanced Class A (Inland Empire), Double-A (Arkansas) and Triple-A (Salt Lake, also named the Bees) affiliates will all remain in place through 2014.
