Jansen, 27, is currently on his second 2022 disabled list. He was placed on IL on June 7 with a fractured finger after being hit by a pitch against the Kansas City Royals. He had previously been sidelined with an oblique injury.
In 19 games this season, his fifth in the major leagues, Jansen batted .232 with seven home runs, 13 RBIs and a .915 OPS.
Garcia, 31, has been out of action since June 24, when he was placed on the IL with a left-back injury.
In 28 appearances with the Jays, Garcia was 1-3 with a 3.42 ERA and .987 WHIP over 26.1 innings pitched.
Garcia is in his eighth major league season.
The Jays open a three-game set with the Oakland Athletics on Monday night.
