The Buffalo Bisons will open their season on April 9th versus the Rochester Red Wings. The Red Wings finished the season half a game behind the Bisons, 4.5 games back of the Syracuse Chiefs and the wildcard winning Pawtucket Red Sox.
The Bisons 2015 roster was completely overhauled, with a whole new set of outfielders, a few new infielders, and bunch of new arms. There will be some familiar faces that the Herd faithful will remember.
With the first couple of spring training games just getting under way, player movement is expected which will impact exactly what the Bisons roster look like on April 9th. Since I am an impatient fan. I want to forecast where the Blue Jays future stars will start the 2015 season.

The potential candidates for the Buffalo Bisons starting rotation was covered on Monday. Now it’s time to forecast the Buffalo Bisons infielders for 2015. The Herd’s 2014 infield consisted of career minor leaguers Dan Johnson, Andy LaRoche Jared Goedert, Munenori Kawasaki, Mike Nickeas, and Jonathan Diaz. This group of infielders was complimented by a pair or Ryan’s….Ryan Goins and Ryan Schimpf.
Alex Anthopoulos had a busy off season improving the Bisons offence. Alex did a good job of adding power to a team which finished middle of the pack in many offensive categories.
