Too Many Bisons


Too Many Bisons

One look at the projected Buffalo Bisons (AAA) board and one quickly comes to realize that a bunch of failed ex-prospects may be out of work before the season starts.

Starting pitcher wise, there are six names penciled in: Tobi Stoner, Jon Niese, Bobby Parnell, Freddy Garcia, Nelson Figueroa, and Adam Bostick. That’s fine if Niese and Parnell make the parent roster, but there isn’t any room to send guys like Stoner back to AA when they are stacked with the likes of Dillon Gee, Mike Antonini, Dylan Owen, Jake Ruckle, and Eric Niesen.

But the real log-jam is in the pen, which currently lists Eddie Kunz, Rocky Cherry, Carlos Muniz, Darren O'Day, Connor Robertson, Edgar Alfonzo, John Madden, Eddie Camacho, Casey Fossum, Tom Martin, Sal Aguilar, Brandon Knight, and Eric Brown. That’s 13 relief pitchers, which is far more that will eventually break camp.
