Toronto Blue Jays reliever Rafael Dolis is “fine” after exiting Friday’s game with right knee discomfort, manager Charlie Montoyo told reporters on Saturday.

Dolis appeared to hurt himself while sliding into first base in an attempt to record an out.

The 32-year-old has a 1.59 ERA in 22 2/3 innings this season, with four saves in five opportunities. If he’s unavailable on Saturday, Anthony Bass would be the presumptive closer.

Toronto continues its road series with the Philadelphia Phillies at 6:05 p.m. ET.
