BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Spring Training is still a few months away, but the Baltimore Orioles announced a restructuring of their Minor League Baseball affiliates on Wednesday.

The Frederick Keys will no longer be a farm club for the Birds. The Keys have been affiliated with the Orioles franchise for 31 years.

Instead, the Aberdeen IronBirds will be the Orioles High-A affiliate.

Bowie, Delmarva, and Norfolk will remain the other oriole minor league franchises.
