Maile went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the Red Sox. The Jays only managed three hits off David Price and the Boston bullpen, and Maile's second-inning homer accounted for all of Toronto's offense on the afternoon. The backup catcher is slashing just .148/.193/.278 through 20 games with two home runs and four RBI, and with Danny Jansen's bat starting to come around, Maile's opportunities for playing time could shrink even further.
Maile is starting at catcher and hitting ninth Saturday against the White Sox. He was scratched from Friday's lineup for an unknown reason, but he's back in the mix a day later. This is only Maile's sixth start this month and he has two hits in 15 at-bats over that stretch.
Maile was scratched from the lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox. The reason for the lineup change is not yet clear. Danny Jansen will take over behind the plate in Maile's absence.
Maile is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox. Maile had started three of the last four games behind the plate, but Danny Jansen will check back in at catcher in the series finale. Though Jansen currently tops the depth chart, his leash as the primary option behind the plate has undoubtedly loosened after turning in a lowly .471 OPS through his first 97 plate appearances this season. With a .443 mark of his own, however, Maile hasn't made a compelling case yet to displace Jansen for the top job.
Maile is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Twins. With top backstop Danny Jansen struggling in the early going, Maile has seen his opportunities pick up. Though he'll return to the bench for the series finale, Maile had started four of the past six games, going 3-for-13 with a home run during that span.
