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: Sitting out again Friday

    Jansen is not in the lineup for Friday's contest versus the Tigers. Alejandro Kirk started at catcher in five of the final eight games before the All-Star break and is behind the dish again for the second-half opener. While it might be too soon to say Jansen has been passed up in the pecking order, it does appear to be a 1A/1B situation at best for Jansen with Kirk after he had previously been the clear top option. Jansen has just a .467 OPS since June 1.
