Jansen is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against Atlanta.
Jansen will hit the bench for the second straight game and the third straight day, as the Blue Jays had an off day Monday. It's not clear whether he's dealing with an injury or simply being rested. Reese McGuire will start behind the plate in his absence.
Jansen is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros.
Jansen will get a routine breather in favor of Reese McGuire after starting at catcher in the past three games -- and slugging a home run in each of them. The 26-year-old has still been one of the majors' worst everyday players this season with a .104/.178/.254 slash line, but Jansen's recent power surge should at least give him a short-term boost in job security.
Jansen went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Blue Jays' 8-4 win over the Astros on Saturday.
Jansen has homered in each of his last three games after not having a single long ball in his first 62 plate appearances. The catcher is a double-digit home run threat, but it took him a while to get going this year. He has a rough .104/.178/.254 slash line through 73 plate appearances and had just one RBI in his first 21 games.
Jansen went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the A's.
His fourth-inning blast helped chase Mike Fiers from the game. It was Jansen's first homer of the year in his 22nd game, but with Alejandro Kirk (hip) out for a month or more, Jansen should see a big workload in May despite his feeble .083/.167/.150 slash line.
Jansen is out of the lineup Wednesday at Oakland, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.
Jansen started the past three games and finally busted out of his hitless streak, going 2-for-10 with a walk, an RBI and two runs during that stretch. He should continue working as the No. 1 catcher with Alejandro Kirk (hip) out, but Reese McGuire will start Wednesday.

The 26-year-old remains hitless in 33 at-bats over his past 12 appearances and will head to the bench Friday. Alejandro Kirk will start behind the plate and has hits in each of his past three games, so he could displace Jansen atop the depth chart.
Jansen is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Nationals.

Jansen started behind the plate in the first game of the twin bill and went hitless in three at-bats. Alejandro Kirk will take over as the starting catcher for Saturday's nightcap, batting seventh.
Jansen is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees.
With the Blue Jays and Yankees wrapping up their series with a day game, Jansen will be getting a breather after catching all nine innings of Toronto's 7-3 win Tuesday. Alejandro Kirk will form a battery with T.J. Zeuch in the series finale.
Jansen will sit Monday against the Yankees.
Jansen remains the primary catcher in Toronto for now, though he's seemingly not all that far ahead of backup Alejandro Kirk. Kirk starts for the second time in three games Monday and the fourth time in the season's first 10 contests.
