The Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday placed right-hander Rafael Dolis on the 10-day injured list with a right middle finger strain.

The Blue Jays also put outfielder Teoscar Hernandez on the paternity list.

Toronto recalled right-hander T.J. Zeuch, while outfielder Jared Hoying had his contract purchased. Both players were at Triple-A Buffalo. Right-hander Carl Edwards Jr. (oblique) was moved to the 60-day IL to open a spot on the 40-man roster for Hoying.

Dolis, 33, was 1-3 with three saves and a 5.14 ERA in 26 relief appearances. In five seasons with the Chicago Cubs (2011-13) and Blue Jays (2020-21), Dolis is 5-9 with a 4.33 ERA in 90 relief appearances. He pitched in Japan from 2016-19.

Hernandez, 28, is batting .298 with 10 home runs and 41 RBIs in 50 games this season.

Zeuch, 25, has just 12 career major league appearances (six starts), with four and two, respectively, coming earlier this season when he went 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA in 12 innings.

Hoying, 32, last appeared in the major leagues with the Texas Rangers in 2017 and has a .220 career batting average with one home run and 12 RBIs in 75 games. He played the last three seasons in South Korea.
