Danny Jansen (knee) went 1-for-3 at the plate with a double and a strikeout in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers.
Jansen was back in action after he missed one game with the knee injury. The 25-year-old catcher is 2-for-13 over four games to start the season and is only worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues.
Blue Jays catcher Danny Jansen, who exited Monday's game after taking a foul ball off his knee, will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis, according to manager Charlie Montoyo.
Montoyo added that Jansen was already feeling better after the game, though he did acknowledge that "for Danny Jansen to come out of a game, it has got to hurt, you know?" Evidently, the skipper respects his catcher's toughness and is confident that he can return soon, even if not tomorrow.
Danny Jansen exited the Blue Jays game against the Rangers on Monday after taking a ball off the knee.
The severity of Jansen's injury is unclear at this time. Jansen was behind the plate when the injury occurred, and was clearly in pain when the trainer came out to check on him. Jansen finished the inning, but was then replaced by rookie Alejandro Kirk. Kirk made the Opening Day roster as the backup catcher and could see an increased role if Jansen were to miss time. We'll continue to monitor the reports on Jansen as they come out.
Danny Jansen did all he could to help the Blue Jays try to force a Game 3 of the Wild Card Round, smacking two solo homers in an eventual 8-2 loss to the Rays.
Jansen was Toronto's only source of offense in this one. The 25-year-old had an underwhelming regular season, batting .183 with six homers, 20 RBI, and a .671 OPS. Still, he should enter 2021 as the Jays' starting catcher.
Danny Jansen went 4-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored, including two solo home runs in the Blue Jays' 14-1 win over the Yankees on Wednesday.
Before Wednesday's nights big performance, Jansen has had a disappointing season at the plate. The 25-year-old catcher is now hitting .190 with six home runs, 19 RBI, and 17 runs scored.
