  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Goes yard twice against Cards

    Jansen went 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in Tuesday's 8-1 win over the Cardinals.

    The backstop launched a three-run shot off Jordan Hicks in the fourth inning and a solo blast off Drew VerHagen in the seventh. Jansen has only played in 11 games this season due to an oblique strain, but he's made the most of his chances by hitting .310 (9-for-29) with five homers, six runs and eight RBI.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Takes seat Monday

    Jansen is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cardinals.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Not in Tuesday's lineup

    Jansen will sit Tuesday against the Mariners.

    Jansen has now started just twice in four games since returning from an oblique injury Saturday. It's unclear if his playing time will pick up once he's further removed from the injured list or if he and Alejandro Kirk, who starts Tuesday, will continue an even split behind the plate going forward.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Sits after homering Saturday

    Jansen is not in Sunday's lineup against the Rays.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Could return Saturday

    Jansen (oblique) could be activated Saturday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Jansen has been out for over a month with a strained left oblique. He's played in rehab games for three straight days, grabbing one hit in each, and it looks like that might be all he needs. He'll presumably reclaim the starting catcher role upon his return, pushing Alejandro Kirk to the designated hitter spot on a regular basis.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Reinstated, starting Saturday

    Jansen (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and is starting Saturday against the Rays.

    Jansen spent just over a month on the injured list with an oblique injury but recently completed a rehab stint at Single-A Dunedin in which he went 3-for-10 with two doubles and four runs. The 27-year-old should serve as the primary catcher now that he's healthy, while Alejandro Kirk should see additional at-bats as the designated hitter.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Begins rehab assignment

    Jansen (oblique) began a rehab assignment with Single-A Dunedin on Tuesday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

    Jansen hasn't played in a full month while recovering from a strained left oblique. The length of his absence may mean he needs more than just a game or two of rehab before he's ready to return, though the Blue Jays haven't specified exactly how much time he'll need.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Traveling with team

    Jansen (oblique) will do some running and hit in the batting cage after traveling to Cleveland with the Blue Jays on Thursday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Jansen took part in live batting practice early this week, and he'll ramp up his activity level and intensity now that he's traveling with the team. The 27-year-old is hopeful he'll be able to start a rehab assignment soon but said the next steps in his recovery will depend on how his body responds to his increased workload.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Takes live batting practice

    Jansen (oblique) took part in live batting practice session Monday, Mitch Bannon of SI.com reports.

    Jansen relayed that he "felt great" after the hitting session, which was highlighted by an opposite-field home run. The 27-year-old is expected to continue his hitting progression while partaking in additional baseball activities over the next few days, and a minor-league rehab assignment could soon follow. Jansen has been on the shelf since April 11 with a left oblique strain.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Participates in several activities

    Jansen (oblique) caught a live BP session and ran the bases Saturday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Jansen has been on the 10-day injured list since April 11 due to a left oblique strain, and he doesn't yet have a timetable to return to game action. However, he began tee work early this week and continued to make progress Saturday. The 27-year-old will likely require a rehab assignment before rejoining the major-league club, but the Blue Jays haven't yet revealed when that might occur.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Beginning tee work

    Jansen (oblique) will begin hitting off a tee Tuesday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Not yet swinging

    Jansen (oblique) has begun baseball activities but is not yet ready to swing, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

    Jansen has been out for two weeks with an oblique strain that will reportedly cost him an extended absence. He's reportedly slightly behind Teoscar Hernandez (oblique), who's expected to begin live batting practice within the next few days. That leaves Jansen with a timeline that's still somewhat ambiguous, but he's at least taking steps in the right direction.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Facing extended absence

    Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Tuesday that he expects Jansen (oblique) to miss "several weeks," Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The skipper's comments imply that Jansen is dealing with at least a moderate strain of his left oblique, an injury he likely picked up during the Blue Jays' season-opening series with the Rangers. While Jansen is out, Montoyo said he plans to take a matchups-based approach to the catcher position. Alejandro Kirk is the leading candidate to see the bulk of the playing time behind the dish, but on the occasions he rests or serves as a designated hitter, the Blue Jays will turn to Zack Collins and Tyler Heineman to make starts at catcher.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Heading to injured list

    Jansen was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a strained left oblique, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Jansen was 4-for-7 with two solo home runs and a double through the first three games of the season, but he'll now be sidelined by the oblique strain. It remains unclear how long the 26-year-old will be unavailable, but he'll be eligible to be activated from the injured list April 21.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Dealing with side soreness

    Jansen is out of Monday's lineup against the Yankees due to soreness in his left side, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Jansen picked up the injury over the weekend on a swing, and he's currently being evaluated to determine the extent of the injury and will undergo an MRI, per Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca. Alejandro Kirk is starting behind the plate Monday while fellow catcher Zack Collins serves as the designated hitter.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Not in Monday's lineup

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Strong start to season

    Jansen went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rangers.

    That's now two starts and two homers to begin the season for Jansen, who is looking to prove he deserves the bulk of the work behind the plate even with Alejandro Kirk on the roster as well. Jansen's power has never been in question, only his ability to get to it in games, but if he can improve on his career .215 batting average, a breakout campaign could follow.
