Are the Diablos affiliated with a Major League team?
No. The Diablos are independent, meaning they can sign players who best help the team to win. However, in 2007, nearly 20 former American Association players played for an affiliated minor-league team, with one (Luke Hochevar of Kansas City) reaching the majors. Dozens of other former independent players have reached the major leagues, including Kevin Millar of Baltimore and Chris Coste of Philadelphia.
