Player Outlook
Danny Jansen has some of the most pop from the catcher position in the league, but unfortunately for him, things on him will not stop popping and he has not been able to stay on the field. His career high for plate appearances came in his rookie season, but he has since missed time in each of the past three seasons as the wear and tear of catching has its costs. His latest injury was a finger fracture on a foul tip while behind the plate which ended his season in early September. He had already set a career high in homers and RBIs before the injury and looked to be on pace for a 20 homer season before the injury. Jansen's approach is rather pull intensive and he is looking to elevate and celebrate on most swings. Both his Pull% and his FB% have been over 50% in each of the past two seasons and that is not expected to change as Jansen plays his final year before free agency while trying to get a nice payday with his next contract given his other flaws. Contract year hope?

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Good to go Tuesday

    Jansen (back) is starting behind the plate and batting fifth Tuesday against the Orioles. Jansen sat out Monday for the second straight game due to back spasms but is ready to play Tuesday. The fact the 29-year-old is immediately returning to work behind the plate indicates the injury wasn't a serious concern. Jansen has carried a hot bat through nine games in May with a 1.101 OPS in 28 at-bats.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Nursing back spasms

    Blue Jays manager John Schneider said Jansen is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles due to back spasms, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. The injury explains why Jansen is on the bench for a second straight game after he was held out of the lineup for Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Twins in what appeared to be a routine maintenance day. Jansen came off the bench and pinch hit for designated hitter Daniel Vogelbach in that contest, and Schneider said that he's hopeful Jansen will be available again Monday, if needed. Alejandro Kirk will pick up another start at catcher in Jansen's stead.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Out of starting nine Monday

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

He'll likely get a more proper day of rest Monday while Alejandro Kirk gets another turn behind the plate.

Jansen has three homers since making his season debut April 16, all solo shots, but they've all come in his last four starts. The 29-year-old catcher has gone 8-for-30 (.267) in 10 games, but six of those hits have gone for extra bases, including three doubles.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Likely to debut Tuesday

    Jansen (wrist) is expected to join the Toronto lineup and make his season debut in Tuesday's game against the Yankees, ESPN.com reports. After missing the first two and a half weeks of the season while recovering from a fractured right wrist suffered in a March 13 spring training game, Jansen was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday. He didn't play in Monday's series-opening 3-1 victory, however, as Alejandro Kirk drew the nod behind the plate and went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, an RBI and a run scored. Though Kirk has now reached base seven times over the Blue Jays' last two games, he's still slashing an ugly .200/.293/.220 through 58 plate appearances. Given that he's regarded as the superior defender of the two catchers and in light of Kirk's struggles at the dish, Jansen is expected to emerge as the Blue Jays' No. 1 backstop now that he's healthy.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Returns from injured list

    The Blue Jays activated Jansen (wrist) from the 10-day injured list Monday, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports. Jansen wound up missing the first two and a half weeks of the season after suffering a small fracture in his right wrist. He went 4-for-13 with a home run during his rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo and seems likely to ascend to the top of the Blue Jays' catching depth chart given Alejandro Kirk's early struggles (.170/.259/.170 slash line).

Jansen will serve as Buffalo's designated hitter Wednesday and, if that goes well, he will catch for them Friday. It's been reported that Jansen is targeting a late-April return, so it would seem he will be with Buffalo for a little while before being activated. He's been out since mid-March with a small fracture in his right wrist.
