    Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Heads to bench Wednesday

    Danny Jansen is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.In his return from the 10-day injured list in Tuesday's 4-2 loss, Jansen started at catcher and went 1-for-1 with a walk and a solo home run. The Toronto Blue Jays haven't committed to Jansen immediately taking over as the team's No. 1 catcher now that he's healthy again, so both Alejandro Kirk and Reese McGuire could be included in a three-man timeshare behind the dish.

    Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Goes yard in return

    Danny Jansen went 1-for-1 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Orioles.In his first at-bat since being activated from the IL, Jansen got the Jays on the board by taking Keegan Akin deep in the third inning. The homer was his sixth of the season in 50 games, but the 26-year-old's .183/.270/.365 slash line doesn't make a strong case for consistent playing time behind the plate in September.

He began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Aug. 24 and wound up going 4-for-15 with a homer, four RBI and three runs scored across five games.

    Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Bound for Triple-A on Tuesday

    Danny Jansen (hamstring) is expected to begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.Jansen hasn't progressed as quickly as expected from the right hamstring strain he sustained July 21, but just over a month later, he's finally reached the final phase of his recovery program. Neither Reese McGuire nor Alejandro Kirk has ran away with the No. 1 catching job while Jansen has been out, but that doesn't mean that the 26-year-old will have a clear path to the top gig once he returns. Though Jansen is valued for his defense, his 62 wRC+ on the season places him 49th among the 58 catchers who have logged at least 100 plate appearances.

    Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Rehab assignment set for next week

    Toronto Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Wednesday that he expects Danny Jansen (hamstring) to begin a minor-league rehab assignment "by next week," Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.Jansen has been on the injured list since July 23 with a right hamstring strain, but he's been working out for nearly two weeks and appears to be nearing the final stage of his recovery process. Since he submitted a lowly .595 OPS in 140 plate appearances on the season prior to landing on the IL, Jansen won't be a lock to take back the No. 1 catching job from either Reese McGuire and Alejandro Kirk once he's cleared to rejoin the big club in the final week or August or early September.
