McGuire went 4-for-5 with three doubles, two runs, two RBI and a strikeout in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Orioles. McGuire went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Saturday, but he had little trouble reaching base in his first four-hit performance of the season Sunday. Across his last seven games, the 26-year-old has hit .421 with a home run, five doubles, five runs, four RBI, a walk and six strikeouts.
McGuire is not in the lineup Friday against the Orioles. McGuire started the past two games and will head to the bench after going 3-for-3 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Yankees. Riley Adams will start in his place in Baltimore.
McGuire is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Red Sox. McGuire will head to the bench after catching in both of the Blue Jays' last two games while going 2-for-6 with a solo home run, a double and three runs. Riley Adams will be behind the plate Sunday, but McGuire looks like Toronto's clear No. 1 backstop for the time being.
McGuire is not in the lineup Thursday against the White Sox. The 26-year-old is 2-for-15 over his past five games and will sit for the second time in the last three contests. Riley Adams will start behind the plate Thursday, and he and McGuire should continue splitting time with Danny Jansen (hamstring) recently placed on the injured list.
McGuire is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox. McGuire had been splitting time behind the plate with Danny Jansen, who landed on the injured list with a hamstring strain Tuesday. The newly promoted Riley Adams will start Tuesday in his big-league debut. McGuire bats left-handed while Adams hits right-handed, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see Adams start against southpaws -- like Tuesday's starter for the White Sox, Carlos Rodon -- going forward.
