BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Buffalo Bisons will remain the Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays.

The team has signed a 10-year player development agreement with Major League Baseball as part of a major realignment of the minor leagues.

The partnership between the Bisons and the Jays is approaching its ninth year.

But there are some changes. The Herd will now compete in a new 20 team league called Triple-A East.

The Bison's 2021 schedule will be released at a later date, as will ticketing information and ballpark policies.

There is no word yet if the Blue Jays are looking to play at Sahlen Field again this season because of international travel restrictions.
