Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic confirms the Mets are in agreement on a deal with free agent LHP Aaron Loup.
The financials are still unknown. Loup made 24 appearances for the Rays last season and recorded three wins and four holds to go along with a 2.52 ERA. He'll function as a high-leverage lefty option out of the bullpen this season.
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.
