Rays' Aaron Loup: Strong push for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup was making a strong push for a bullpen spot before spring training was suspended, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Topkin lists the veteran southpaw as part of a group which also includes Peter Fairbanks, Andrew Kittredge and Jalen Beeks that's competing for the final two spots on what's expected to be a 13-man pitching staff. Loup certainly made a strong case for himself during Grapefruit League play by posting a 1.93 ERA, 0.43 WHIP across 4.2 innings over five appearances. The 32-year-old brings a strong multi-season track record as a reliever, having posted a 3.45 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 55 holds across eight major-league campaigns with the Blue Jays, Phillies and Padres.

Rays' Aaron Loup: Looks healthy for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup (elbow) was scheduled to throw a side session during Monday's workout, Josh Tolentino of The Athletic reports.

Loup's ability to take part in mound work this early in spring training seemingly hints that he's moved past the strained left elbow April 7 onward last season. The lefty will face an uphill battle to win a spot in the big-league bullpen while attending camp as a non-roster invitee.

Rays' Aaron Loup: Lands with Rays on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Rays on Monday as a non-roster invitee, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Loup was only able to appear in four games for the Padres last season as he dealt with a left elbow strain, but he'll find a home in the Rays' organization after his contract option was declined by San Diego at the end of October. The southpaw will work alongside the major-league coaching staff during the spring, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him appear in the major-league bullpen sometime in 2020.

Aaron Loup: Team option declined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup's (elbow) $2 million team option was declined by the Padres on Thursday, making him a free agent.

The 31-year-old missed most of 2019 with a left elbow strain as he appeared in just four games. The middle reliever owns a 3.93 ERA with a 1.52 WHIP over the past three seasons. It wouldn't be surprising to see him land a role in another major-league bullpen, although his fantasy value is limited as a middle reliever.

Padres' Aaron Loup: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Aaron Loup: Moves to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Aaron Loup: Headed to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Padres' Aaron Loup: Heads to San Diego
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup agreed to a one-year contract with the Padres on Sunday that includes a team option for 2020, AJ Cassavell of 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.

Phillies' Aaron Loup: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Phillies' Aaron Loup: Shut down for two more weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup (forearm) will be shut down from throwing for two more weeks, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic Philadelphia reports.

The timeline could be adjusted depending on how his arm is doing, but the expectation is that Loup will avoid throwing for three weeks from the date on which he initially suffered his flexor strain. That would leave Loup in line to return sometime in mid-September, as he'll still have to build his arm strength back up and likely make a few rehab appearances before rejoining the Phillies.

Phillies' Aaron Loup: Put on DL with forearm strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a left forearm strain Thursday.

It's unclear as to when Loup suffered this injury, as he was able to finish off a scoreless inning of relief during Wednesday's win against the Red Sox. That marked his fourth appearance with Philadelphia after being traded from the Blue Jays prior to the non-waiver trade deadline last month. The club has yet to comment on a timetable for his recovery, though he will be eligible to come off the DL on Aug. 26. Ranger Suarez was recalled from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in a corresponding move.

Phillies' Aaron Loup: Dealt to Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup was traded to the Phillies for Jacob Waguespack on Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

Loup logged a 4.54 ERA and 1.60 WHIP with a career-high 10.6 K/9 across 35.2 innings of relief with the Blue Jays this year. In addition, Loup has cut down on his walk rate this year, and a 3.65 FIP with a .406 BABIP suggests that he's due for some better results over the next couple months.

Blue Jays' Aaron Loup: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup signed a one-year, $1.8 million deal with the Blue Jays on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Loup appeared in 70 games out of the Blue Jays' bullpen in 2017, posting a solid 3.75 ERA over 57.2 innings. He fanned roughly a quarter of the batters he faced but also issued free passes at a career-worst 10.9 percent clip. He'll see plenty of action out of the Toronto bullpen again in 2018.

Blue Jays' Aaron Loup: Picks up fourth hold Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup pitched 1.2 hitless innings Monday, allowing just one walk while striking out three Rays en route to his fourth hold of the year.

Monday's performance was undoubtedly Loup's best in quite a while. Manager John Gibbons is has shown the willingness to extend Loup when the southpaw is on, but unfortunately the reliever's usage is too fickle to make the reliever worth much in fantasy league.

Blue Jays' Aaron Loup: Fails to capitalize Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup walked the only batter he faced in Wednesday's game against the White Sox, failing to capitalize on the chance to notch his fourth hold of the year.

The left-handed specialist maintained a 2.70 ERA and 1.39 WHIP through his first 33 appearances this season. Loup has since posted an 8.76 ERA with a 1.78 WHIP in 14 games. He looked like a contender to rack up holds early in the campaign, but that's since faded, making him unserviceable in all formats.

Blue Jays' Aaron Loup: Seeing reduction in usage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

After enjoying regular usage through most of the season, Loup has logged just 4.2 innings over the team's last 17 games.

The 29-year-old left-hander was one of Toronto's best relievers through the campaign's early months, but he's seemingly fallen out of favor of late. Loup owned a 2.29 ERA at the conclusion of May, but he struggled greatly in June, posting an 8.64 ERA over 12 appearances last month.

Blue Jays' Aaron Loup: Makes another scoreless appearances Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup allowed one hit in a scoreless inning Sunday versus the Yankees.

The left-hander needed just six pitches to get through the seventh inning with the score tied 2-2. Loup's allowed a run in just three of his 26 appearances this season, and the 29-year-old currently sports a career-best 2.14 ERA through 21 innings.

Blue Jays' Aaron Loup: Earning more opportunities
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup has a 2.37 ERA and 1.42 WHIP across 19 innings this season.

The 29-year-old plays the role of situational lefty out of the Blue Jays' bullpen but still pitches full innings, and he has actually fared slightly better against right-handed hitters (.625 OPS) than lefties (.733 OPS). Loup has two wins and two holds in May and could see more of those opportunities, though his high WHIP is less than ideal.

Blue Jays' Aaron Loup: Surrenders key homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup threw an inning in relief Tuesday in a loss to Cleveland. He allowed three earned runs on three hits.

It was a tough night for Loup, who was touched up for a three-run homer at the hands of Yan Gomes in the eighth inning. The bomb extended the Indians lead to six, and essentially put the game on ice for Cleveland. With one swing of the bat, his ERA skyrocketed from 0.71 to 2.63.

Blue Jays' Aaron Loup: Nabs win Friday against Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup picked up his first win of the season Friday, allowing a hit and striking out one over an inning of work against the Rays.

Toronto's bullpen deployed five relievers Friday after starter Francisco Liriano failed to get out of the fourth inning. Loup was in the right place at the right time, as the Jays put up seven runs while he was the pitcher of record during the 8-4 comeback victory. Despite owning a career-worst 1.63 WHIP, Loup's managed to avoid damage to maintain a career-best 0.77 ERA.
