Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: On bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Remains on bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 has just two hits in his last 20 at-bats, so it wouldn't be surprising if Sunday's starting backstop Danny Jansen is given increased time behind the plate following the All-Star break.

Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: On bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Not in lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGuire isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

McGuire has gone 0-for-8 with three strikeouts across his last three appearances, and he'll be out of the lineup for the second time in the last three games. Danny Jansen will start at catcher and bat ninth.

July 4, 2021 10:36 AM
Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: On bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGuire is not starting Sunday's series finale against the Rays.

Even after going 0-for-3 with a strikeout Saturday, McGuire is still hitting .400 in his last 15 games. Danny Jansen returned from the injured list Saturday and is starting at catcher Sunday, but manager Charlie Montoyo has stated that McGuire and his hot bat will remain the primary backstop for now.

Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Out of Wednesday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGuire is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners.

McGuire started the past five games and will receive a day off after going 7-for-18 with two walks and five runs. Riley Adams will take over behind the plate for the Blue Jays.

Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Three more hits Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGuire went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Thursday's win over the Orioles.

It's the third time in his last five starts McGuire has rapped out at least three hits as he continues to thrive in a starting role while Danny Jansen (hamstring) is sidelined. The hot streak has added 120 points to McGuire's batting average on the season, boosting his slash line to .324/.367/.459 through 80 plate appearances.

Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Sits versus lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGuire is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

The lefty-hitting McGuire will retreat to the bench with southpaw Trevor Rogers on the hill for Miami. Riley Adams, a right-handed hitter, will serve as Toronto's catcher while batting eighth.

June 20, 2021 07:16 PM
Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Logs three doubles Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGuire went 4-for-5 with three doubles, two runs, two RBI and a strikeout in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Orioles.

McGuire went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Saturday, but he had little trouble reaching base in his first four-hit performance of the season Sunday. Across his last seven games, the 26-year-old has hit .421 with a home run, five doubles, five runs, four RBI, a walk and six strikeouts.

June 18, 2021 05:12 PM
Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Out of Friday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGuire is not in the lineup Friday against the Orioles.

McGuire started the past two games and will head to the bench after going 3-for-3 with two doubles, an RBI and a run scored Thursday against the Yankees. Riley Adams will start in his place in Baltimore.

June 13, 2021 12:28 PM
Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Takes seat Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

McGuire will head to the bench after catching in both of the Blue Jays' last two games while going 2-for-6 with a solo home run, a double and three runs. Riley Adams will be behind the plate Sunday, but McGuire looks like Toronto's clear No. 1 backstop for the time being.

June 10, 2021 05:44 PM
Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGuire is not in the lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

The 26-year-old is 2-for-15 over his past five games and will sit for the second time in the last three contests. Riley Adams will start behind the plate Thursday, and he and McGuire should continue splitting time with Danny Jansen (hamstring) recently placed on the injured list.

Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 bats left-handed while Adams hits right-handed, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see Adams start against southpaws -- like Tuesday's starter for the White Sox, Carlos Rodon -- going forward.

Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Contract selected by Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGuire had his contract selected by the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

The 26-year-old was designated for assignment by Toronto after failing to make the Opening Day roster, but he'll join the club with Alejandro Kirk set to miss significant time with a hip injury. Danny Jansen should work as the Blue Jays' top catcher. but McGuire will see occasional opportunities and could carve out a bigger role if Jansen continues to struggle offensively.

Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McGuire cleared waivers and was assigned to the alternate training site Sunday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

There had been a lot of handwringing over the Jays potentially losing McGuire if he didn't make the team, as he was out of options, but he stays put. He should serve as the third catcher on the depth chart this season.

Blue Jays' Reese McGuire: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
