Ex-Bisons share historic big-league debuts

Two days ago, Sean Reid-Foley was in the Buffalo Bisons' starting rotation and Danny Jansen was the primary catcher and coming off a Triple-A All-Star Game appearance.

Monday night, Reid-Foley and Jansen were both in the starting lineup for the Toronto Blue Jays against the Kansas City Royals. It marked the first time in Blue Jays history that batterymates made their big-league debuts at the same time. It had not happened in the American League since 1967.

Reid-Foley allowed three run and six hits in five innings. He walked three and struck out three and took the loss as the Jays fell, 3-1.

Jansen got his first big-league hit in his first at-bat and went 2-for-3 with a pair of singles. He caught Reid-Foley and then other former Bisons teammates Luis Santos and Thomas Pannone. Jansen also threw out a runner attempting to steal.

Jansen is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday and catch another former Bison, his close friend Ryan Borucki.
