Brewers moving Triple-A team to Colorado Springs

MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Colorado Springs in the Pacific Coast League will be the new Triple-A home of the Milwaukee Brewers.

General manager Doug Melvin announced the two-year agreement on Thursday.

Milwaukee is moving its top minor-league affiliation from Nashville starting next season. The switch was necessitated after the Nashville Sounds franchise announced a four-year agreement this week to be the top minor league affiliate for the Oakland A's starting next season. The Sounds are moving into a new ballpark in 2015.

The Brewers this week also announced that they were extending agreements with Double-A Biloxi and Class-A Brevard County. The owner of the Biloxi, Mississippi franchise is relocating the team from Huntsville, Alabama.
