RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Loup followed up his impressive rookie season with another strong year in 2013. He was dominant enough against lefties to finish with a 2.47 ERA, despite surrendering a .286/.321/.455 line to right-handers. Loup wasn't strictly used as a lefty specialist, but may ultimately be best suited to that role. While he doesn't have overpowering stuff (6.9 K/9 in 2013), he also doesn't allow many walks (1.7 BB/9). Loup is all but assured of a spot in the Toronto bullpen, and with the team now boasting some excellent right-handed relievers, it won't be surprising if a higher proportion of Loup's work comes against lefties.

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.
