  • Rafael Dolis: Cut by ChiSox

    The White Sox released Dolis on Sept. 8.

    Dolis had made 63 appearances out of the Toronto bullpen between the prior two seasons, but he never earned a call-up to the majors in 2022 after joining the White Sox in April on a minor-league deal. Before he was released, Dolis logged a 5.02 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 28.2 innings at Triple-A Charlotte on the season.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Dolis cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo on Saturday.

    Dolis was unable to find a spot on another 40-man roster after he was designated for assignment Wednesday, and he'll remain in the Blue Jays organization with the Triple-A club. The right-hander earned some saves early in 2021 but saw fewer high-leverage opportunities as the season progressed. If he performs well in the minors, Dolis may be in consideration to return to Toronto's bullpen later in the season.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Cast off 40-man roster

    The Blue Jays designated Dolis for assignment Wednesday, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    Dolis held some fantasy relevance earlier in 2021 when he notched three saves just over a month into the season, but he's slowly tumbled down the pecking order in the Toronto bullpen. The 33-year-old right-hander hadn't recorded a hold or a save since June 1, and after giving up at least one run in each of his last three appearances in a low-leverage role, Toronto elected to move him off the 40-man roster. The Blue Jays activated reliever Tim Mayza (elbow) to fill Dolis' spot in the bullpen.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Earns win in relief

    Dolis (2-3) earned the win in relief Sunday against the Red Sox after tossing 1.1 scoreless innings, giving up a hit and fanning two.

    Dolis has been pitching lights out this season and has extended his run of scoreless appearances to nine outings, posting a 13:5 K:BB across 9.2 innings in that span. The veteran right-hander hasn't been working as the Blue Jays' closer for quite a while, but he remains a dependable late-inning arm. He owns a 2.70 ERA since the beginning of July.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Activated from IL

    The Blue Jays reinstated Dolis (finger) from the 10-day injured list Sunday.

    Manager Charlie Montoyo stated Saturday that Dolis was ready to return to action, and he will indeed rejoin the bullpen for Sunday's series finale against the Rays. Numbness in his pitching hand was alarming at the time, but fortunately Dolis managed to avoid a significant elbow or forearm injury. Nick Allgeyer was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Ready for activation

    Manager Charlie Montoyo said Dolis (finger) is ready to be activated "any time," Arden Zwelling of reports.

    The righty allowed one hit in a scoreless rehab inning with Triple-A Buffalo on Friday. The Blue Jays' depth-deprived bullpen will benefit from getting Dolis back. He figures to return early next week, if not this Sunday.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Rehab assignment scheduled

    Dolis (finger) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Arden Zwelling of reports.

    Dolis threw a successful 25-pitch bullpen Tuesday, and his rehab assignment could mark the final step in his recovery process. The right-hander has been on the injured list since June 17, so he could have a fairly brief rehab stint before he's cleared to return to Toronto's bullpen.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Throws productive bullpen

    Dolis (finger) felt good after a 25-pitch bullpen Tuesday, Arden Zwelling of reports.

    Barring any issues with his recovery Wednesday, the righty could be ready to begin what should be a short rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo. Despite struggling to a 5.14 ERA thus far in 2021, Dolis should again be a high-leverage option in Toronto's troubled bullpen upon his return.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Throws bullpen session

    Dolis (finger) completed a bullpen session Saturday but still experienced minor numbness in his right hand, Shi Davidi of reports.

    The 33-year-old landed on the injured list Thursday with a strained right middle finger after experiencing numbness in his hand while pitching a day earlier, though the Blue Jays apparently aren't concerned it's a serious issue. Dolis seems likely to remain sidelined until he's able to pitch without the numbness.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Lands on injured list

    Dolis was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right middle finger strain Thursday.

    Dolis exited Wednesday's game against the Yankees due to right hand numbness, and he'll require at least 10 days to recover after he was diagnosed with a finger strain. It's not yet clear when the right-hander will be able to return to game action.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Unavailable Thursday

    Dolis (hand) is not available to pitch in Thursday's game against the Yankees, Keegan Matheson of reports.

    The righty, who exited Wednesday's contest with a numb right hand, is still being evaluated to determine the extent of his absence. A stint on the injured list is possible for Dolis, but it's unclear at this time whether that will be necessary.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Exits Wednesday's outing

    Dolis left Wednesday's game against the Yankees with right hand numbness, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Manager Charlie Montoyo said Dolis couldn't feel the ball and had no sensation in his throwing hand. More details about the reliever's health should become available Thursday after further evaluation.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Takes loss Friday

    Dolis (1-2) was tagged with the loss in relief Friday against the Red Sox, giving up one hit and one unearned run while not retiring any of the batters he faced.

    Dolis entered the game in the ninth inning with a 5-5 tie, but he was downright awful and let the game slip away, though he also had a bit of bad luck. Enrique Hernandez reached second following a throwing error from Bo Bichette and then came around to score following a game-winning RBI single from Alex Verdugo. This means Dolis has now allowed runs in two of his last three appearances, but he still owns a 1.80 ERA with a 12.6 K/9 -- but a woeful 7.2 BB/9 -- over his last six outings.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Blows save, takes loss

    Dolis (1-1) allowed three earned runs on four hits and one walk while striking out one across one inning Thursday, taking the loss to the Red Sox.

    Dolis entered in a save situation in the ninth inning but squandered a two-run lead as J.D. Martinez slammed the game-winning home run off him with two outs. This was the first blown save for Dolis this season. The 33-year old has a 5.52 ERA and a 1.30 WHIP with 17 strikeouts in 14.2 innings. His 6.8 BB/9 needs to come down if he's going to become a more reliable reliever.

  • Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Activated from IL

    Dolis (calf) was reinstated Tuesday from the 10-day injured list and will be active to start the Blue Jays' series against the Red Sox.

    The right calf strain ultimately proved to be a minor injury for Dolis, who returns to the bullpen after a minimum stay on the IL. Before struggling in his last outing when he suffered the injury, the righty had allowed just one run in his previous 11 relief appearances, tallying three saves and a hold in that span.
