Not Here for a Long Time
In all likelihood one of the Blue Jays future starters will be sent to Buffalo for more seasoning. Although a long shot, both could start the season with the Herd.
Daniel Norris and Aaron Sanchez– the decision
There’s been a lot of chatter about Sanchez’ future role. Should he be a reliever or a closer or starter. This debate will be over sooner than later, but the impact of such a decision will be felt throughout the entire Blue Jays minor league system. Both pitchers would be a welcome addition to the Bisons starting five.
2015 Prognosis: Regardless of which promising young arm starts the season with the Bison, they won’t be there for a long time. Either one will be the first arm to get the call to Toronto when the need arises.
