Rays' Aaron Loup: Takes second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup (3-2) took the loss in the Rays' 6-4 defeat at the hands of the Blue Jays on Monday, allowing two runs (one earned) on a hit and a walk over one-third of an inning.

The southpaw walked into a one-on, two-out scenario in the seventh and eventually surrendered a three-run home run to Randal Grichuck, which also got Loup charged with his first blown save of the season. The 32-year-old has endured a rocky August after opening the season with three scoreless late-July appearances -- he's now carrying a 5.06 ERA over 10.2 innings during the current month, a figure partly comprised of three home runs allowed.

Rays' Aaron Loup: Remains undefeated on season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup (3-0) was credited with the victory in a win over the Blue Jays on Sunday, allowing a hit and recording no walks or strikeouts over a scoreless seventh inning.

Loup needed a scant eight pitches, six of which he threw for strikes, to get through the trio of Cavan Biggio, Randal Grichuk and Travis Shaw, the latter which he induced an inning-ending double play from. The southpaw has had just one hiccup on the season, which came when he yielded three earned runs on a couple of home runs to these same Blue Jays on Friday, but he's otherwise surrendered just one additional earned run over nine appearances overall.

Rays' Aaron Loup: Nabs first win Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup (1-0) was credited with the victory in a win over the Red Sox on Monday, allowing one hit over a scoreless inning while recording three strikeouts.

The veteran southpaw recorded whiffs of Jackie Bradley, Kevin Pillar and Alex Verdugo, the latter two on swinging strikeouts. Loup has been a dependable relief asset for manager Kevin Cash thus far, posting five scoreless efforts in as many appearances (5.1 innings) while generating a 7:2 K:BB.

Rays' Aaron Loup: Added to 40-man Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup was added to the Tampa Bay 40-man roster Thursday, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Networkreports.

Austin Meadows was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move after testing positive for COVID-19. Loup has been trending towards earning an Opening Day roster spot ever since posting a 1.93 ERA and 0.43 WHIP over four Grapefruit League appearances earlier this spring. The veteran southpaw missed almost the entire 2019 season due to a left elbow strain. He currently sports a solid career 3.57 ERA and 1.30 WHIP across eight major-league seasons.

Rays' Aaron Loup: Works in sim game Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Loup was one of four pitchers to participate in a simulated game at summer camp Thursday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

The veteran southpaw is thought to have a firm grip on an Opening Day roster spot after posting a 1.93 ERA and 0.43 WHIP over four Grapefruit League appearances. Loup threw 20 pitches overall during his one inning Thursday, getting 12 into the strike zone and recording a strikeout while facing the quartet of Manuel Margot, Yoshi Tsutsugo, Kevan Smith and Mike Brosseau.

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 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.

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 Sportsnet.ca 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.
