I seem to remember someone asking Kasten about this awhile ago and he downplayed the notion of an Appalachian League team. We have two Dominican Summer League teams, a GCL team, and a short-season A team. An Appalachian league team would make room for more prospects out of high school and undrafted free agents. Does anyone know if you can play in the Appalachian League after your GCL eligibility has run out? That would have promise . . .
