McGuire is not starting Sunday against Tampa Bay.
McGuire is out of the starting for the second straight game despite hitting a double off the bench Saturday.

McGuire is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox.
McGuire had been splitting time behind the plate with Danny Jansen, who landed on the injured list with a hamstring strain Tuesday. The newly promoted Riley Adams will start Tuesday in his big-league debut.

McGuire is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros.
Though Danny Jansen will be behind the dish in the series finale, McGuire may have supplanted him as the team's preferred backstop for the time being. McGuire caught four of the previous six games, and his .542 OPS -- while poor -- is still 38 points better than Jansen's own mark over a larger sample of plate appearances. At the very least, a timeshare between the two catchers could be in place until one of the two dramatically separates himself from the other from a performance standpoint.

McGuire was designated for assignment as expected Thursday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
There was some thought over the offseason that his lack of options would keep him on the roster despite the obvious talent of Alejandro Kirk, but the Jays evidently decided that potentially losing McGuire was an acceptable outcome. The 26-year-old's career .243/.281/.444 slash line in 63 major-league games could be decent enough for another team to claim him off waivers, especially as he has a solid defensive reputation.
