Why are the Jays not at least going to make Harper an offer?
Bobby Meacham will be back as manager of the triple-A Buffalo Bisons.
It's his third season in charge of the Blue Jays' highest affiliate, guiding the team to a 61-77 record last season. He has gone 126-153 record during his tenure in Buffalo.
Corey Hart is back for his second season as Bisons hitting coach, while Doug Mathis has been hired as pitching coach. He spent the last two seasons in the same role with the Seattle Mariners single-A affiliate Clinton LumberKings.
Mike Mordecai, who spent last season as quality control coach on John Gibbons' staff, goes to Double-A as manager. He takes over from John Schneider, who will now serve as a major league coach with the Jays under new manager Charlie Montoyo.
