Andy Dirks– Darkhorse
Andy Dirks has the ability to impact Toronto and Buffalo’s outfield, IF healthy. Dirks has decent speed, power and plays a good LF. If he successfully comes back from an injury that cost him his 2014 season, than Dirks will be in a Blue Jays uniform. IF he struggles with his back again, than he will be playing LF in Coca-Cola Field.
Caleb Gindl– Starting in RF
Caleb has played 65 games with the Milwaukee over the past two seasons. A career .285/.360/.449 minor league hitter, the 26 year old Pensacola, Florida native will start in RF for the Bisons. Gindl will share at-bats with Colabello and Viciedo, but he should be the starter in RF.
Dayan Viciedo– Starting LF
When Viciedo was signed by the Blue Jays to a minor league deal on March 1st. The two time 20 home run hitter’s chances of making the Blue Jays dramatically increased when Michael Saunders suffered a knee injury. If the Blue Jays decide to keep retain the services of another outfielder, than Viciedo will surely supply the Bisons with outstanding power potential from the right side.
