RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

After three strong seasons in a row, Loup regressed a bit in the bullpen. From 2012 to 2014, Loup held a 2.77 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP while holding a 130:45 K:BB ratio in 168.2 innings. Last season, Loup put up a 4.46 ERA with a 1.28 WHIP and a 46:7 K:BB ratio. While he reduced his walk totals significantly, going from a 3.9 walks per nine innings rate to 1.5, he gave up 1.3 home runs per nine innings, more than double the next-highest single-season rate of his career. Loup finds himself as one of the rare lefties in the Toronto bullpen; however, he gave up an identical .275 batting average to both left-handed and right-handed hitters, albeit with all six of his home runs surrendered to right-handed hitters. Loup should slot in as one of the team's middle relievers and one of the two lefties in the bullpen, barring an addition in free agency.

2015

Loup has been a steady option in the Toronto bullpen since getting his first taste of the big leagues in 2012. Lefties couldn't touch him last season, as he held them to a .154/.237/.322 line. Most of his value comes from getting hitters to pound the ball into the ground (career 56.8 GB%), but prior to 2014, Loup demonstrated excellent control. Although he was used to pick up four saves last season, it remains to be seen if the Jays trust him enough against right-handed batters to give him a regular opportunity to close. Working with a three-pitch mix that includes a low-90s fastball, slider and changeup, Loup figures to take on a similar matchup role in the seventh and eighth innings for the Jays in 2015.

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.
