The Toronto Blue Jays’ AAA club, the Buffalo Bisons, saw much of its infield move on. That means they will have several new faces which need introducing.
The 2015 Buffalo Bisons infield consisted of Jonathan Diaz, Munenori Kawasaki, Matt Hague, andAndy Burns.
Matt Hague won the International League Most Valuable Player Award after finishing near the top in most offensive categories with .338 BA, 11HR, 33 doubles, 92 RBI, and 177 hits. Matt received a brief cup of coffee with the Toronto Blue Jays getting in 10 games. Hague is taking his line drive power to Japan for the Hanshin Tigers.
Defensive wizard Jonathan Diaz hit .223 while posting a .970 fielding percentage. Diaz played 30 games in Toronto over the past two season and remains a free-agent.
In Munenori Kawasaki’s year 34 season, he split 2015 between Buffalo and Toronto showing excellent plate discipline and diminished range. Muni continues to provide comic relief and is an interview highlight reel, but it appears his time in the Toronto Blue Jays organization is coming to a close.
The new additions to the 2016 Buffalo Bisons infield have the potential to score a bunch of runs and provide the Toronto Blue Jays with depth in case one of the regulars go down for any length of time.
