Bisons prepare lineup without Anthony Gose

by Amy Moritz

The buzz around Coca-Cola Field this afternoon was about Anthony Gose and his callup this morning to the Toronto Blue Jays. The 22-year old outfielder even got in game in Toronto this afternoon, a defensive replacement in the eighth inning for Melky Cabrera. He got an at-bat, too, though he flew out to left field. With Gose gone, the Herd had to juggle its lineup slightly. Here's the breakdown:

Outfield shift: Moises Sierra take Gose's spot in centerfield. Sierra, the regular rightfielder, has two previous starts for the Herd this season at center. Ryan Langerhans is making his fourth start in right field while Eugenio Velz is getting his 18th start in left field.

Top of the order: Gose hit primarily in the first and second spots in the order. For tonight's game, Velez takes the leadoff spot, his third time at the top of the order. Jim Negrych will bat second, a familiar position for him. It's his 13th time batting second.

Quality from Bush: Dave Bush gets the start for the Herd. The righty leads the team in quality starts with three and is 4-3 overall. His last outing he took the loss at Indianpolis, giving up nine runs on 10 hits in four innings. He has walked just four batters in 36 innings of work this season, including just one walk in his lat four starts combined against 13 strikeouts.

Tonight's Bisons lineup:
Eugenio Velez -- LF
Jim Negrych -- 2B
Moises Sierra -- CF
Luis Jiminez -- DH
Mauro Gomez -- 1B
Josh Thole -- C
Andy LaRoche -- 3B
Ryan Langerhans -- RF
Ryan Goins -- SS
