The MLB Draft League was formerly known as the New York-Penn League and consists of 6 teams formerly in that league as well as the Carolina League and Eastern League.

The MLB Draft League season is split into 2 halves. The first half, which ended on July 4, features amateur players and is meant to be a showcase for draft prospects. The second half of the season, which started Friday, has teams of paid players who’ve run out of amateur eligibility.

In addition to the Cutters and Keys, other teams include the State College Spikes, Mahoning Valley Scrappers, Trenton Thunder, and West Virginia Black Bears.
