The Buffalo Bisons played their first game ever in March to kick off the 2023 minor league season. Unfortunately there was not much to remember from the game.

Buffalo 1 Scranton 2

This is what I noted from today's game.

Addison Barger played third base, this is something we will watch this season. Free agent Ernie Clement played short with Otto Lopez at second.

Cam Eden started in right field. Some commentators in spring training said the Jays really like Eden. His numbers don't inspire confidence although he is reportedly an excellent outfielder. His OPS in New Hampshire last season was .668. We will see if it was just spring training talk or if the staff know something we don't.

Casey Lawrence started and pitched well except for Jake Bauers who homered twice off him. Lawrence had eight K's in five innings.

Nate Pearson pitched an inning, gave up a hit and struck out the side.
