Toronto Blue Jays relief pitcher Rafael Dolis was removed from the second game of a doubleheader against the Philadelphia Phillies with right knee discomfort, the team announced Friday.

During the bottom of the sixth, Dolis appeared to slide while attempting to field a play at first base. He was removed by manager Charlie Montoyo shortly after the play occurred.

The 32-year-old has a 1.61 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 22 1/3 innings this season.
