Loup could be a mystery candidate for one of the final Toronto bullpen spots on the 25-man roster as a situational lefty, MLB.com reports. Manager John Gibbons has said that only one bullpen job is up for grabs, the long-relief job, but that doesn't mean Loup may not have already secured a roster spot. "We're looking for a long guy," Gibbons said. "Loup's not necessarily a long guy; he's more a situational, one-inning guy, but we're looking for that guy, multiple innings."

2013

Loup was called up from Double-A in July after numerous injuries to the Toronto pitching staff forced their hand. Pitching 30.2 innings, he recorded a 2.64 ERA, walking only two batters while not allowing any home runs. Loup will be given an opportunity in spring training to earn a spot in the bullpen and could step into a lefty specialist role if Darren Oliver retires.
