Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Blue Jays exercise 2021 option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Toronto exercised Dolis' $1.5 million club option for 2021 on Friday.

The 32-year-old joined the Blue Jays after a successful stint in Japan, and he continued that success back in the majors with a 1.50 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 31:14 K:BB over 24 innings while recording five saves and seven holds. Dolis likely will enter spring training as the leading candidate for the closer's job next year.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Notches fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis picked up his fifth save of the season in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Yankees, giving up one hit and striking out three in 1.1 scoreless innings.

He hadn't pitched in a week due to a sore right knee, but Dolis looked sharp in his return to the mound as he locked down the playoff-clinching victory for the Jays. Jordan Romano (finger) could rejoin the bullpen in the final days of the regular season, but the closer job heading into the postseason appears to belong to Dolis.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Remains unavailable Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis (knee) remains unavailable Tuesday against the Yankees, Arden Zwelling of reports.

Dolis warmed up in the bullpen Monday and was expected to be available to make his return Tuesday, but he'll receive at least one more day to rest. He's still considered day-to-day as he deals with a right knee issue.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Dealing with minor knee issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis didn't suffer any structural damage to his right knee when he was injured Friday, Arden Zwelling of reports.

Dolis slipped on first base during Friday's contest and hurt his knee in the process, but he appears to have avoided a major injury. Manager Charlie Montoyo said that he's doing fine, but he likely won't be available to pitch Saturday. The right-hander is currently considered day-to-day.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Collects third consecutive save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis walked one but also struck out a batter during a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to earn the save over the Mets.

Dolis walked Brandon Nimmo to start the ninth but quickly ended any chance of a threat by getting Wilson Ramos to ground into a 5-4-3 double play. He then got Ahmed Rosario to chase strike three in the dirt for the apparent final out, but catcher Alejandro Kirk couldn't handle it cleanly and Rosario was able to reach first. However, Dolis subsequently caught Rosario cheating too far off the bag and was able to pick him off to end the game. Dolis converted all three of his save chances over the last week but may soon be pushed out of the closer role after Ken Giles (forearm) was activated off the 45-day injured list Friday.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Another save Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis allowed no baserunners and struck out two across one inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Yankees.

The Blue Jays turned to Dolis in the ninth inning to hold a 2-1 lead, and he did so with little trouble. It was his third save of the season, two of which have came in the past three games. Dolis appears to have moved ahead of Anthony Bass as the preferred closer, though his time there may be short lived with Ken Giles (forearm) continuing to move towards a return to the mound. Overall, Dolis has maintained a 1.77 ERA with a 24:11 K:BB across 20.1 frames.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Records second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to earn the save Sunday against the Red Sox.

Dolis was called upon to protect a two-run lead, and he slammed the door emphatically to earn his second save. His chance came one game after Anthony Bass allowed two runs (one earned) to blow a save opportunity. While Dolis is unlikely to completely take over the closer role as a result, he could figure into the closer picture until Ken Giles (forearm) is able to return.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Grabs win over BoSox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis (2-1) picked up the win in Thursday's extra-inning victory over the Red Sox, walking one and striking out three over 1.1 innings of relief.

The right-hander took over from Ryan Borucki to get the final out of the ninth inning, then slammed the door by striking out the side in the 10th after the Jays launched two homers in the top of the frame. Dolis has not allowed an earned run in 10 straight appearances, posting a 13:7 K:BB over 10.2 innings during that stretch and racking up two wins, a save and three holds. He's emerged as one of the team's most reliable high-leverage arms, but he remains behind Anthony Bass in the pecking order at closer, with both Ken Giles (forearm) and Jordan Romano (finger) inching closer to returns from the IL.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Secures first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis recorded the save Wednesday in Baltimore after giving up one hit and one walk while recording three strikeouts during a scoreless ninth inning.

Anthony Bass has three saves with closer Ken Giles (forearm) on the injured list, but he may not have been available after throwing 29 pitches during his appearance Tuesday. Jordan Romano had also worked Tuesday, leaving Dolis as the freshest late-inning arm available for manager Charlie Montoyo. Dolis has a 3.27 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 13:6 K:BB with one save and four holds through 11 outings this season, and he should continue to work in a setup role for the Blue Jays.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Generating buzz in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis has been generating buzz in camp, primarily due to his sinker, Scott Mitchell of reports. "He thew a couple sinkers that I haven't seen since I caught Doc. They were just unbelievable."

Dolis was sidelined in spring training with an appendectomy, so he benefitted from the time off to fully recover. The Jays traded away a lot of their bullpen depth, so he could step into a significant role early on, and more so if the Jays trade closer Ken Giles before the deadline. He has spent the last three seasons pitching as a closer in Japan.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Progressing, likely out for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Charlie Montoyo said Wednesday that Dolis (abdomen) is progressing well after requiring an appendectomy last week, but the Blue Jays aren't counting on him being ready to go for Opening Day, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

The right-hander could be cleared to resume full workouts before spring training concludes, but look for him to begin the season on the 15-day injured list as the Blue Jays trim down their roster to 26 men. Dolis' expected absence to open the campaign will likely clear a spot in the bullpen for one of Justin Miller, Brian Moran and A.J. Cole, all of whom are attending camp as non-roster invitees.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Sidelined after appendectomy
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis will be shut down from baseball activities for at least a week before being re-evaluated after he required surgery Tuesday to have his appendix removed, Arden Zwelling of reports.

Manager Charlie Montoyo wasn't willing to estimate when Dolis might be ready to return to game action, but Zwelling notes that recovery timelines for appendectomies typically ranges from 3-to-6 weeks. With that in mind, Dolis appears likely to begin the season on the 15-day injured list, which should open up a spot in the Jays' bullpen for one of A.J. Cole, Brian Moran or Justin Miller.

Blue Jays' Rafael Dolis: Agrees to terms with Blue Jays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis signed a one-year contract with the Blue Jays on Saturday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

Dolis has pitched overseas for the past four seasons, but he impressed enough to earn a contract with the Blue Jays. The right-hander posted a 2.51 ERA with a 52:12 K:BB over 57.1 innings in Japan last year. The 32-year-old last reached the majors in 2013 but will try to carve out a role in the major-league bullpen to begin the season. The contract is worth $1 million with a club option for 2021, Shi Davidi of reports.

Rafael Dolis: Headed to Japan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers transferred Dolis's rights to the Hanshin Tigers of the NPB for cash considerations Friday.

He was on a minor league deal with the Tigers, but the righty reliever will take his talents to Japan for 2016.

Tigers' Rafael Dolis: Signs minor league deal with Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dolis signed a minor league contract with the Tigers on Friday that includes an invite to Major League spring training.

Dolis made 43 relief appearances at Triple-A Toledo in 2015, posting a 4.61 ERA to go with a 1.58 WHIP and 1.29 K:BB rate. He has received an invite to the Tigers' spring training, but right-hander will need to improve at keeping runners off base to have a real shot at making the roster in all likelihood.
