The Twins' Class AA affiliate next season will be the Pensacola (Fla.) Blue Wahoos in the Southern League.
Pensacola added the information to its website Monday, and the Twins later announced a two-year agreement.
Pensacola was Cincinnati's Class AA team from 2009 to '18, but the Reds signed an agreement with the Twins' Class AA affiliate in Chattanooga, Tenn. The Twins were in Chattanooga, also in the Southern League, for four years.
The Twins' best Class AA possibilities then were Pensacola or Amarillo (Texas). The San Diego Padres announced their affiliation with Amarillo, which plays in the Texas League, on Monday.
The Blue Wahoos were the 2016 recipient of the Bob Freitas Award, given by Baseball America to the best overall franchise at their level.
• The Twins will select 13th in next year's amateur draft.
