  • 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).

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Rehab assignment complete

    Jansen (wrist) has completed a rehab assignment and could return to Toronto's lineup Monday, Mike Wilner of The Toronto Star reports.

    Jansen could be back in the lineup as early as Monday. The Jays are looking for more offensive output from the catcher slot, as Alejandro Kirk is hitting a paltry .170/.259/.170 on the season.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Beginning rehab assignment

    Jansen (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    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.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Tracking toward late-April return

    Jansen (wrist) is tracking toward a late-April return, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

    Jansen has progressed to taking batting practice as he works his way back from a small fracture in his right wrist. He will need a handful of rehab games before returning and it's not clear when that rehab assignment will begin, but Jansen should be activated within the next couple weeks if all continues to go well.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Takes batting practice

    Jansen (wrist) caught two live batting practice sessions and took batting practice of his own on the field Thursday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    He's slated to face a high-velocity pitching machine next. The Blue Jays are hoping Jansen will be ready to begin a rehab assignment with Low-A Dunedin on Sunday, when he would catch fellow rehabber Alek Manoah (shoulder). Jansen has been out with a small fracture in his right wrist.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Taking swings

    Jansen (wrist) resumed swinging a bat Friday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    In addition to taking swings, Jansen also participated in long toss. The next steps for the catcher are to take batting practice and face high velocity, though there isn't a timeline for those activities yet. Jansen was placed on the 10-day IL on Thursday after sustaining a small fracture in his right wrist March 15.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Lands on IL

    The Blue Jays placed Jansen (wrist) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    With Jansen on the shelf to begin the season, Alejandro Kirk will take over as the Blue Jays' clear No. 1 catcher, while Brian Serven was added to the 40-man roster and will serve as Kirk's understudy. Jansen sustained a small fracture in his right wrist March 15 but could soon resume baseball activities, at which point a clearer target date for his season debut might come into focus.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Hoping to throw this weekend

    Jansen (wrist) said Thursday he hopes to begin throwing this weekend, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The small fracture Jansen was diagnosed with nearly a week ago was in his right hand, so it would seem to be a good sign that he's nearly ready to throw. A stint on the injured list to begin the season would appear to be a virtual certainty, but the hope is that Jansen won't need to miss much time.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Suffers wrist fracture

    Jansen was diagnosed with a broken bone in his wrist Friday and is expected to be sidelined for at least the next two weeks, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    Jansen suffered the injury on a hit-by-pitch Wednesday, and it now appears he'll be sidelined for Opening Day. Manager John Schneider indicated the club is hoping his absence would be limited to about two weeks, per Jayson Stark of The Athletic, which would allow the 28-year-old backstop to return during the first weekend of the regular season. Given where the fracture happened, however, that timeline seems overly optimistic, and a stint on the injured list to open the campaign is likely. Alejandro Kirk should serve as Toronto's primary catcher in the meantime, with Brian Serven or Payton Henry the likely backup.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Clubs first homer of spring

    Jansen went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays.

    The catcher took Zach Eflin deep in the fourth inning for his first long ball of the spring. Jansen figures to split duties behind the plate with Alejandro Kirk once again in 2024, and he's made some hard contact in camp, going 4-for-20 through seven Grapefruit League games with two doubles in addition to Monday's homer.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Returns to spring lineup

    Jansen (illness) will start at catcher and bat cleanup Thursday in the Blue Jays' Grapefruit League game against the Tigers.

    He'll be back in the lineup for the first time since Saturday after a fever kept him out of commission for a few days. Jansen is once again projected to begin the 2024 season in a timeshare at catcher with Alejandro Kirk.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Jansen: Expected back Tuesday

    Jansen had to be scratched from the Blue Jays' Grapefruit League lineup Monday due to a fever, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The Jays sent Jansen home for the day, but they are optimistic he'll be ready to return to action Tuesday. He is slated to again share catching duties with Alejandro Kirk this season.
