At last we have come to the end of our minor-league affiliate previews. In case you missed any of them, check out the Low-A Modesto Nuts here, the High-A Everett AquaSox here, and the Double-A Arkansas Travelers here. Today we cap things off with the affiliate that is in closest proximity both geographically and level-wise to the big show in Seattle, with the Triple-A Tacoma Rainiers.
