  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Slipping on depth chart

    McGuire remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

    On the bench for the fourth time in five games, McGuire looks to be the No. 3 option on the depth chart at catcher behind Danny Jansen and Alejandro Kirk, in some order. None of the three backstops has performed well enough to truly run away with the No. 1 role, but McGuire is still expected to see the fewest opportunities among the trio in September.

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Not starting Tuesday

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Resting Sunday

    McGuire is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Tigers.

    With three starts in the Blue Jays' previous four games, McGuire still appears to hold an edge over Alejandro Kirk as the team's No. 1 catcher. He'll be rested for Sunday's matinee game, however, paving the way for Kirk to form a battery with starting pitcher Steven Matz.

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Not starting Friday

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Starting over Alejandro Kirk again

    McGuire will start at catcher and bat eighth Wednesday against the Nationals.

    In the lineup for the third time in four games, McGuire seems to have eclipsed Alejandro Kirk as the Blue Jays' No. 1 catcher -- at least for the time being. Given that McGuire has gone 1-for-20 at the dish since Aug. 5, he won't have a long leash atop the depth chart if he fails to break out of his slump.

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Not starting Game 2

    McGuire is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Angels.

    McGuire started the matinee and went 0-for-1 with a pair of walks, and it's no surprise he won't be starting both games of the twin bill. Alejandro Kirk will work behind the plate in the nightcap.

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Taking playing time away from Kirk

    McGuire will start at catcher and bat ninth Wednesday against Cleveland.

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Pounds out three doubles

    McGuire went 3-for-5 with a trio of doubles and an RBI in Thursday's win over the Red Sox.

    Hitting out of the No. 9 hole in the Toronto lineup, McGuire doubled off three different Boston pitchers and drove in a run with his ground-rule two-bagger in the sixth inning. With Danny Jansen (hamstring) on the shelf for the second time this season, McGuire is splitting playing time behind the plate with rookie Alejandro Kirk and has responded by hitting .284 in 143 plate appearances on the year.

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Catching in series finale

    McGuire will start at catcher and bat ninth Thursday against the Red Sox.

    McGuire and Alejandro Kirk have been working in a timeshare at catcher since the latter was called up from Triple-A Buffalo on July 23 to replace the injured Danny Jansen (hamstring). With a .175/.195/.200 slash line in July, McGuire hasn't performed well enough to justify a larger portion of the catching load.

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: On bench Wednesday

    McGuire is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox.

    McGuire was scheduled for a day off Tuesday before the contest was postponed, and manager Charlie Montoyo will stick with the same order Wednesday. Danny Jansen will work behind the plate and bat ninth for Toronto.

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    McGuire will be on the bench Tuesday against the Red Sox.

    McGuire may be moving slightly ahead of Danny Jansen on the Blue Jays' catcher depth chart, as he's started three of the first four games of the second half. Jansen gets the nod behind the plate Tuesday, catching Thomas Hatch.

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Sitting Sunday afternoon

    McGuire is not starting Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Rangers.

    An .095 hitter against left-handed pitching, McGuire takes a seat as the Blue Jays match up against southpaw Kolby Allard. Danny Jansen will catch and bat ninth, with McGuire likely returning to the lineup Sunday evening.

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Sitting against lefty Saturday

    McGuire is not starting Saturday's game against the Rangers.

    McGuire went 1-for-4 and scored a run Friday. The 26-year-old is hitting a lowly .095 against left-handed pitching this season, so he understandably gets a day off against southpaw Kolby Allard. Danny Jansen starts behind the dish and bats ninth Saturday.

  • Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: On bench Saturday

    McGuire is not starting Saturday's game against the Rays.

    McGuire's bat has cooled off again, as he's gone 1-for-17 with no walks since the start of July. His offensive drop-off has coincided with Danny Jansen's return from the injured list July 3. McGuire was recently named the starting catcher over the light-hitting Jansen, but the latter is starting Saturday and may reclaim the role if he enjoys some success at the plate.
