Loup (elbow) had a setback when he recently began throwing again, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Loup will now be sidelined until at least August. With news that he also received a platelet-rich plasma injection, he may be headed for an even lengthier absence.
Loup (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday. Loup has been on the 10-day IL with a left elbow strain since April 8, and it remains unclear where he is currently at in his recovery. The 31-year-old will be eligible to return from the 60-day IL in early June, though that shouldn't be expected given the lack of information on his progress.
Loup was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a left elbow strain. Loup fired a scoreless inning of relief Sunday against the Cardinals and apparently picked up an injury in the process. It's unclear how long the issue will keep the southpaw sidelined at this point. Brad Wieck will take Loup's place on the active roster and in the bullpen.
Loup agreed to a one-year contract with the Padres on Sunday that includes a team option for 2020, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. Loup is a decent southpaw reliever, compiling a 4.54 ERA (3.39 FIP) and a 10.0 K/9 in 39.2 innings split between the Blue Jays and Phillies last season. He'll provide a veteran presence and a much-needed left-handed arm for the San Diego bullpen this season.
Loup (forearm) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Tuesday. Loup wound up spending a little more than a month on the shelf with a forearm strain. The 30-year-old owns a 4.78 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 43:14 K:BB across 37.2 innings with the Blue Jays and Phillies this season. He figures to serve as one of the team's top left-handed options out of the bullpen down the stretch.
