Bisons juggle starting rotation

While righty Jeurys Familia (4-1, 4.06 ERA) is set to start tonight against Indianapolis at Coca-Cola Field, Sunday's starting spot for the Buffalo Bisons opened up this morning. That's when Jeremy Hefner was recalled by the New York Mets and drove up the QEW to Toronto for the afternoon game. Herd manager Wally Backman said reliever Jack Egbert would take the Hefner's starting spot for Sunday's afternoon game. "He'll be on a pitch count," Backman said during batting practice. "It's going to be a bullpen kinda day for us."

But before the Herd gets to Sunday, they kick off their four-game series with the Indians. It's the first meeting of the season between the clubs. The Indians won the series last year, 6-2.

Tonight's Bisons' lineup:

Corey Wimberly -- CF
Brad Emaus -- 2B
Vinny Rottino -- C
Valentino Pascucci -- RF
Matt Tuiasosopo -- LF
Josh Satin -- 1B
Oswaldo Navarro -- SS
Michael Fisher -- 3B
Jeurys Familia -- P
