Buffalo Bisons

Former Buffalo Bisons manager Eric Wedge has been hired by the Toronto Blue Jays as the team's Player Development Advisor.

Wedge managed the Bisons for two seasons from 2001 to 2002, during which the team won the International League North division title. Wedge then went on to manage Seattle and Cleveland's Major League Baseball teams.
