The Toronto Blue Jays exercised the $1.5 million team option for Rafael Dolis for the 2021 season.
This is a solid move by the Blue Jays. In his first season in the MLB since 2013, Dolis allowed just four earned runs across 24.0 innings pitched to complete the year with a 1.50 ERA.
Rafael Dolis allowed no runs on one hit in 1 1/3 innings to earn the save during Thursday's win over the Yankees.
Entering a game for the first time in about a week, Dolis threw more than an inning for the third time this year. Dolis has a 1.50 ERA and is second on the team in saves.
Rafael Dolis, who's been out since last Friday with a knee injury, was not available to pitch on Tuesday vs. the Yankees.
The reliever is still considered day-to-day for now but time is running out in the final week of the regular season. Dolis owns a 1.59 ERA and 1.28 WHIP with four saves across 22 2/3 innings this year.
Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo says Rafael Dolis (knee) didn't suffer any structural damage on Friday night.
He’s doing fine. He’s probably not going to be able to pitch tonight. But he’s day-to-day, which is good news," Montoyo said. Dolis isn't available on Saturday but it sounds as if he'll avoid an IL stint.
Rafael Dolis was removed from Game 1 of Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies with right knee discomfort.
Dolis pitched a 1/3 of an inning, giving up a pair of hits and striking out one before being removed. He ended up being saddled with the loss as well. The team should update his status on Saturday. Consider the right-hander day-to-day for now.
