TORONTO — The Toronto Blue Jays have announced a two-year affiliation extension with the Lansing Lugnuts.

The extension will keep the Blue Jays' single-A affiliate in Michigan's capital through the 2020 season.

The Lugnuts helped develop starting pitchers Aaron Sanchez and Noah Syndergaard, who was traded to the Mets in 2012 as part of the R.A. Dickey deal.

Top prospects Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette were on last season's Lugnuts roster.
