Maile is not in the starting lineup against Boston on Thursday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

Maile will remain on the bench for the second straight day while Russell Martin catches Ryan Borucki. Since the All-Star break, Maile has been receiving a majority of the playing time and is hitting .265/.324/.353 with six RBI and three extra-base hits.

Maile is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Maile had been earning increasing playing time behind the plate, starting six of the Blue Jays' last nine games. He'll sit in favor of Russell Martin Wednesday.

Maile is in the lineup Tuesday against the Red Sox, his sixth start in the last nine games.

EDGE Analysis

Maile has begun to edge out Russell Martin for playing time. In a lost season in Toronto, it makes sense that the 27-year-old Maile would be given at-bats over his 35-year-old teammate. Even an increased role doesn't make Maile a particularly enticing fantasy option, however, as he's hit just .232 with a 31.9 percent strikeout rate and only three homers in 54 games.

Maile went 3-for-4 with a walk, two home runs and four RBI in Friday's 5-3 extra-innings win over the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

It was a roller-coaster night for the Jays' backup catcher. He failed to corral a third strike against Sandy Leon in the fourth inning, and his late throw to first base sailed over Justin Smoak's head and allowed Brock Holt to scamper home, giving Boston a 3-2 lead. Maile atoned for his error in the seventh when his solo shot off Chris Sale tied the score, but he saved the best for last, crushing a two-run walkoff shot off Brian Johnson in the 12th. The 27-year-old hadn't homered at any level in almost a full calendar year, so don't expect a repeat performance any time soon, but Friday's heroics pushed his slash line through 17 big-league games this season to an eye-popping .339/.418/.542.

Maile will start at catcher and bat eighth Sunday against the Rays, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's the third starting assignment in four games for Maile, who has earned the extra work by slashing a blistering .319/.407/.404 in limited action this season. Maile has struck out in 29.6 percent of his plate appearances and owns a .484 BABIP, so it's difficult to envision him sustaining much offensive success for the long haul. Once Maile's bat predictably cools off, his starting opportunities should fall by the wayside, allowing Russell Martin to take on a larger portion of the playing time behind the plate.

Maile is 6-for-15 with four RBI and a stolen base in four games this season.

EDGE Analysis

Maile has seen few at-bats, but he's made the most of his playing time, batting .400 in his first four games. He currently sits behind Russell Martin on the depth chart, which seems unlikely to change barring an injury. At this point, the 27-year-old backstop possesses little fantasy value, as he'll likely only see the field when Martin needs a day off.

Maile went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run in Tuesday's come-from-behind win against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

The catcher's ninth-inning infield single off O's closer Zach Britton tied the game, opening the door for a heroic walkoff single by Richard Urena on the next at-bat. Maile has seen a decent amount of playing time since being recalled on Sep. 1 as part of roster expansions, but his efforts (.227) aren't worth much for fantasy purposes.
