  • Angels' Aaron Loup: Tagged with loss Wednesday

    Loup (0-2) took the loss against Tampa Bay on Wednesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits over one inning. He struck out two.

    The Angels battled back to tie the game in the eighth inning, and they turned to Loup when the contest went into extra frames. The southpaw immediately served up a double to Vidal Brujan that brought home the designated runner, and Brujan came around to score two batters later on a single by Harold Ramirez. This was a rare poor performance by Loup, who has posted a 1.93 ERA, 0.57 WHIP and 15:2 K:BB while notching six holds over 14 innings on the season.

  • Angels' Aaron Loup: Secures fifth hold

    Loup earned a hold against Cleveland on Thursday, pitching a perfect inning during which he struck out two batters.

    The left-hander came on in the seventh inning and struck out the first two batters he faced before getting Franmil Reyes to fly out to center field. This was Loup's eighth outing of nine without allowing an earned run, and he has yielded only one hit all season. Loup has a 0.93 ERA, 0.31 WHIP and 9:2 K:BB across 9.2 innings on the campaign.

  • Angels' Aaron Loup: Handed first loss

    Loup (0-1) was saddled with the loss in a 5-4 defeat at the hands of the Orioles on Saturday, allowing three unearned runs on one hit in two-thirds of an inning.

    Loup relieved starter Noah Syndergaard in the sixth and worked out of a two-on two-out jam. Manager Joe Maddon opted to stick with the lefty for the seventh and an error led to three unearned runs crossing the plate and a loss. Despite the hiccup, Loup is yet to allow an earned run through seven innings while permitting just one hit and walk compared to five strikeouts.

  • Angels' Aaron Loup: Signs with Angels

    Loup signed a two-year, $17 million contract with the Angels on Monday.

    Loup had a dominant season with the Mets in 2021 and registered 16 holds while posting a 0.95 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in 56.2 innings across 65 appearances (two starts). Several of the Angels' late relievers became free agents following the 2021 campaign, so the southpaw is a candidate to serve in a high-leverage role in 2022.

  • Mets' Aaron Loup: Registers sixth win

    Loup (6-0) got the win in Sunday's 3-2 victory over the Phillies, allowing a hit and a walk with one strikeout in 1.1 innings.

    Loup was brought in to record the final out of the seventh and induced a groundout after walking Bryce Harper to load the bases. New York took the lead in the bottom of the inning and Loup stayed in to pitch a scoreless eighth. The successful outing lowered the 33-year-old's ERA to an even 1.00, and he's yet to allow a run in nine September innings.

  • Mets' Aaron Loup: Picks up fifth win

    Loup (5-0) walked one and struck out none in a scoreless inning to earn the win Sunday versus Washington.

    The southpaw kept the game tied at 6-6 in the seventh inning, and the Mets put him in line for a win by going ahead in the top of the eighth. Since the start of July, Loup has been nearly untouchable, as he's allowed just two runs on 11 hits, 10 walks and three hit batters while striking out 20 in 24 innings. He's pitched to a microscopic 1.13 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with a 49:13 K:BB and 14 holds through 47.2 innings this year.

  • Mets' Aaron Loup: Starting Game 2

    Loup will start Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader versus Atlanta, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    Loup will make the second start of his big-league career after delivering two scoreless frames as an opener July 11 against the Pirates. The left-hander is unlikely to pitch much deeper than that Monday, and he has a 1.44 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 37:7 K:BB across 31.1 innings this season.

  • Mets' Aaron Loup: Two scoreless innings as opener

    Loup allowed two hits and struck out two in two innings as the opener in Sunday's 6-5 loss to Pittsburgh. He did not factor in the decision.

    The southpaw did his job as the opener, and he was ultimately one of the more effective of six pitchers the Mets deployed Sunday. Loup has thrived in a versatile role with eight holds, three wins, a 1.61 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 34:6 K:BB across 28 innings in 31 appearances. Sunday was his first major-league start, but he'll likely return to a high-leverage bullpen role after the All-Star break.

  • Mets' Aaron Loup: Opening Sunday's game

    Loup will start Sunday's game against the Pirates, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

    The lefty is likely capable of giving the Mets a few innings in Sunday's bullpen game, as he's pitched as many as three frames in an outing this year. Loup has held opponents scoreless in 14 of his last 15 appearances dating back to May 22. He has a 19:4 K:BB and 0.68 WHIP in those 14.2 innings.

  • Mets' Aaron Loup: Notches win over Pirates

    Loup (3-0) allowed a walk and struck out one in one inning Friday, earning the win over Pittsburgh.

    The southpaw worked the sixth inning of a tied game, immediately following starter Taijuan Walker. Loup was the beneficiary of the Mets' offense exploding for 10 runs in the bottom of the sixth to take the lead. The 33-year-old has been quite effective lately, allowing just one run in his last 13 innings while racking up a pair of wins and four holds. For the year, he has a 1.73 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 32:6 K:BB in 26 innings across 30 appearances.

  • Mets' Aaron Loup: Picks up second win

    Loup (2-0) picked up his second win during Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Nationals, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out a batter in one-third of an inning.

    Loup has been steady in recent weeks, with his Saturday outing bringing his scoreless innings streak to 8.1. He was the fortunate recipient of a win Saturday despite retiring just one batter. After a shaky month of May, the left-hander's strong start to June has his ERA down to a very impressive 1.83 on the campaign.

  • Mets' Aaron Loup: Earns second relief win

    Loup (2-0) pitched a scoreless fifth inning on one hit while striking out two to earn the win in game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Rockies.

    Loup allowed a double to Garrett Hampson, but retired the other three batters he faced. The 33-year-old provided another solid performance after slipping as of late, allowing a run in three straight appearances in May. He has a 2.77 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP in 13 innings. He has four holds, but he is not a high-leverage inning reliever and he's not in line for any save opportunities.

  • Mets' Aaron Loup: Struggling in May

    Loup has been charged with a run in four of his last seven appearances and sports a 5.40 ERA and 1.95 WHIP through 6.2 innings in May.

    The veteran reliever didn't allow an earned run in April, but he hasn't been as successful since the calendar flipped. Loup remains the top lefty in the Mets' bullpen though, and he has one win, four holds, a 3.00 ERA, a 1.33 WHIP and a 13:2 K:BB through 12 innings across 16 appearances.

  • Mets' Aaron Loup: Strikes out two in hold

    Loup struck out two in 1.2 perfect innings, recording his first hold of the season in Wednesday's 5-1 win over Philadelphia.

    Wednesday's outing was the better of Loup's two thus far in 2021, with the first highlighted by a hit batter and two unearned runs. The 33-year-old had one of his best seasons in 2020 with Tampa Bay, posting a 2.52 ERA resemblant of his 2012-13 seasons in Toronto. Loup will be an essential change-of-pace reliever for the Mets this season as the only lefty -- and a sidearm-throwing one at that -- in a bullpen full of hard-throwing righties.

  • Mets' Aaron Loup: Spot in bullpen secure

    Loup is expected to begin the season as part of the Mets' bullpen, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The veteran reliever should be the top southpaw in the 'pen, giving Loup a path to consistent high-leverage work in a division that includes the likes of Juan Soto, Freddie Freeman and Bryce Harper. Loup has been sharp this spring, posting a 3.18 ERA and 9:0 K:BB over 5.2 innings, and he could be poised to top his career high of 13 holds, set back in 2014 with the Blue Jays.
