RP - TB
Aaron Loup and the Padres have agreed on a one-year contract with an option, according to Jon Heyman.
Loup has a career 3.49 ERA pitching mostly with the Blue Jays, and is a decent lefty out of the bullpen. He adds depth to a Padres bullpen that needed more arms, but he shouldn't factor into the mix in fantasy.
Aaron Loup took care of one batter in the Blue Jay's win over the Texas Rangers Sunday giving up two hits along the way.
Loup has thrown a total of 3.2 innings this season and holds a 7.36 ERA with a 2.18 WHIP. As far as fantasy goes, Loup is close to irrelevant until injuries start occurring to other relief pitchers in the Blue Jay's system.
Aaron Loup pitched one inning of relief giving up one hit and one walk in the Blue Jays' 6-1 loss to the New York Yankees.
Loup doesn’t have much fantasy value as there are plenty of other relief pitchers to own in the Blue Jays bullpen. Even with an okay afternoon, Loup can still be left off of any fantasy roster.
Working mostly in a mop-up role on Tuesday night, Blue Jays bullpen lefty Aaron Loup tossed two shutout innings, allowing two hits and a walk while striking out one.
Loup lowered his ERA to 0.84 over 10 1/3 innings. This seems unsustainable, especially when considering his K:BB is only 12:8 and he's pitching to a 1.69 WHIP.
Aaron Loup will begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend if his arm responds well to Wednesday's extended Spring Training outing. Loup has been sidelined since the spring due to an elbow injury.
Loup is more valuable in real baseball and fantasy. He's a RP in an already-crowded Blue Jays' bullpen, limiting his opportunities for fantasy relevance.
