Could the Twins add a minor league affiliate in St. Paul? Maybe, but a lot of things would have to be approved.

The Twins' contract with Class A affiliate Beloit is nearing a deadline to renew for next season. Could the St. Paul Saints or another local team be in line to work with the Twins?

Maybe. But a lot of things would need to happen.

Twins president David St. Peter explained the Twins' current minor league situation with the Pioneer Press.

"We're undetermined exactly where our Midwest League affiliation is going to be next year, but there is not a (Midwest League) team in St. Paul," St. Peter said. "The reality is that a lot of things would need to happen for that even to be considered. The biggest one is that the Twins would have to bless that because we have territorial exclusivity, so in order for an affiliated team to play in St. Paul, whether it be ours or somebody else's, it would need to be approved by the Twins."
