Ex-minor-league teams suing MLB denied discovery of dox detailing MLB's strategy to reorganize MiLB, per judge's ruling

Jan 30, 2022

Per Daniel Kaplan: The Staten Island Yankees and Tri-City ValleyCats, the two former minor-league teams suing MLB and their respective ex-mother teams, want over 150,000 documents pertaining to the sweeping reorganization of MiLB that cast aside 40 teams, including them.

But a state court judge on Friday denied the discovery demands, meaning the prospective inside look into how MLB orchestrated the biggest change to minor-league baseball in its history will likely not come to light, at least in this case.
