Fresno Grizzlies Executive Vice President Derek Franks has issued the following statement on behalf of the organization:
"Our organization remains committed to the San Francisco Giants. The timeline for open negotiation on a new player development contract begins Tuesday and we're aware of the possibilities in play. However, we continue to seek a renewal with the Giants. Baseball in the Central Valley has deep-rooted heritage and Chukchansi Park continues to be a first-rate facility for Triple-A baseball. We look forward to opening our 18th season of Triple-A affiliated baseball on April 9, 2015 in Downtown Fresno."
