BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The Toronto Blue Jays are going to keep their Triple-A affiliate in Buffalo for a while.

This was the first season that the Bisons were Toronto's top minor league team.

The Bisons have added a two-year extension to their current player development relationship that will go through 2016. The announcement came Thursday during Buffalo's final home game of the regular season.

The Blue Jays have had just two other Triple-A affiliates since 1978: Syracuse from 1978-2008 and Las Vegas from 2009-2012.

The Bisons had been connected with four other teams before linking up with Toronto: Pittsburgh, Cleveland, the Chicago White Sox and the New York Mets.
