Bisons, Mejia back in action

The diamond is green again. And, for now, it looks like the forecast is clear as the Bisons host the Rochester Red Wings in a doubleheader today. Monday's scheduled game, axed due to snow and freezing temps, will be tacked onto today's slate.

Game One starts up in about five minutes and will be aired on the MLB Network.

Not a bad chance for Buffalo to try to get back on track. The Bisons (4-7) are reeling with four straight losses, suffering from some key injuries and problems at the plate. The good news is that Jenrry Mejia is on the mound. Mejia, one of the Mets' prized prospects, has thrown more scoreless innings than any other pitcher in the International League this season (12.2). With the Mets struggling, plenty of eyes will surely be on the righty today.

Here's your lineup:

Jason Pridie -- LF

Kirk Nieuwenhuis -- CF

Zach Lutz -- 3B

Lucas Duda -- RF

Nick Evans -- 1B

Russ Adams -- DH

Luis Hernandez -- 2B

Ruben Tejada -- SS

Raul Chavez -- C

Jenrry Mejia -- P
