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 and potential infielders cover on Wednesday. Now it’s time to forecast the potential Buffalo Bisons oufielders for 2015. The Herd’s 2014 outfield consisted of a pair of promising prospects in Anthony Gose and Kevin Pillar, a former Jays prospect in Darin Mastroianni, and Matt Tuiasosopo. Throughout the season this group were joined by career minor leaguer Adron Chambers and Cory Aldridge, struggling major leaguer Cole Gillespie, surprise minor league prospect Brad Glenn, and finally super prospect Dalton Pompey.
Much of last seasons OF have left via free agency or will be starting in Toronto’s outfield this year, but Alex Anthopoulos has done good work filling the Bisons with quality veteran depth outfielders.
