Las Vegas, NV – The Las Vegas 51’s have ended their four-year alliance with the Toronto Blue Jays organization and have signed a two-year player development contract with the New York Mets.

The Blue Jays opted to have their AAA affiliation closer to Toronto, signing a deal with Buffalo of the International League. That left the Mets without a AAA home, after being affiliated with Buffalo the past four years.

The Mets become the fourth major league franchise to affiliate with Las Vegas in the team’s 30-year history, following the San Diego Padres (1983-2000), Los Angeles Dodgers (2001-2008) and Toronto Blue Jays (2009-2012).

The 51’s ended this season with a 79-and-64 record, their best performance since 2002.
