Toronto Blue Jays’ catcher Danny Jansen sustained a fracture to his right middle finger during the team’s 13-9 win against the Colorado Rockies on Friday evening, as confirmed by manager John Schneider through initial X-ray results.

The injury occurred when Jansen was hit by a foul ball on his right hand while Nolan Jones was at the plate in the lower half of the sixth inning. Alejandro Kirk stepped in as a pinch hitter for Jansen in the following seventh inning.

Schneider characterized the injury as unusual, noting that a spate of similar injuries has been affecting the team recently. Earlier this week, Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette and third baseman Matt Chapman were placed on the injured list.

Schneider mentioned further, “As for Jansen’s condition, we will have a better understanding tomorrow. The X-rays we have are preliminary, and more comprehensive evaluations will be conducted later tonight and into the next day.”

Before his injury, Jansen had showcased his skills by hitting a home run earlier in the match. For the current season, he holds a batting average of .228, with a tally of 17 home runs and 53 RBIs.

Tyler Heineman, a catcher from the Triple-A Buffalo team, is expected to fill Jansen’s role during his absence.
