Merging or Disbanding minor league teams

So, I want to try something. I am sure I am not the first to think of it, but I am clearly using the wrong key words in the search forum. I want to do what the Houston Astros have done and spread my player development budget across fewer minor league teams by eliminating 1 if not 2 of my rookie ball teams. This would also allow me to focus more on minor league management without wasting time on players who will never ever even make it to AA. Is that something I can do safely without messing up the schedule system. Is there a disband team option? Any thoughts?

Not sure how this works for the game. You can uafillate Kissimmee but they may or may not cause problems for the Gulf Coast league having and Indy team. I suppose you could saddle another team with it.

1. Most HS prospects aren't going to be ready for short A that could affect their development.
2. More cuts after each draft just having a short A team.
The advanced rookie and short A are there for a reason in the game and real life.
3. Potential AI problems for a league if you unaffiliate a team.
4. Potential AI problems for a team with 3 rookie league teams

I think the minors are set up now where even has a advanced rookie/Short A team and a rookie team. So it would cause some imbalances. You can try but it could ruin your game for you. It may or may not. Your ability to develop HS players will be diminished as well.

Also you can't do anything of this in challenge mode because you can't change league structure. So if you are playing challenge it is pretty much a non-starter.
