Loup signed a one-year, $1.8 million deal with the Blue Jays on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

EDGE Analysis

Loup appeared in 70 games out of the Blue Jays' bullpen in 2017, posting a solid 3.75 ERA over 57.2 innings. He fanned roughly a quarter of the batters he faced but also issued free passes at a career-worst 10.9 percent clip. He'll see plenty of action out of the Toronto bullpen again in 2018.

Loup pitched 1.2 hitless innings Monday, allowing just one walk while striking out three Rays en route to his fourth hold of the year.

EDGE Analysis

Monday's performance was undoubtedly Loup's best in quite a while. Manager John Gibbons is has shown the willingness to extend Loup when the southpaw is on, but unfortunately the reliever's usage is too fickle to make the reliever worth much in fantasy league.

Loup walked the only batter he faced in Wednesday's game against the White Sox, failing to capitalize on the chance to notch his fourth hold of the year.

EDGE Analysis

The left-handed specialist maintained a 2.70 ERA and 1.39 WHIP through his first 33 appearances this season. Loup has since posted an 8.76 ERA with a 1.78 WHIP in 14 games. He looked like a contender to rack up holds early in the campaign, but that's since faded, making him unserviceable in all formats.

After enjoying regular usage through most of the season, Loup has logged just 4.2 innings over the team's last 17 games.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old left-hander was one of Toronto's best relievers through the campaign's early months, but he's seemingly fallen out of favor of late. Loup owned a 2.29 ERA at the conclusion of May, but he struggled greatly in June, posting an 8.64 ERA over 12 appearances last month.

Loup allowed one hit in a scoreless inning Sunday versus the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander needed just six pitches to get through the seventh inning with the score tied 2-2. Loup's allowed a run in just three of his 26 appearances this season, and the 29-year-old currently sports a career-best 2.14 ERA through 21 innings.

Loup has a 2.37 ERA and 1.42 WHIP across 19 innings this season.

EDGE Analysis

The 29-year-old plays the role of situational lefty out of the Blue Jays' bullpen, but still pitches full innings as he has actually fared slightly better against right-handed hitters (.625 OPS) than against lefties (.733 OPS). Loup has two wins and two holds in May could see more of those opportunities, but his high WHIP is less than ideal.

Loup threw an inning in relief Tuesday in a loss to Cleveland. He allowed three earned runs on three hits.

EDGE Analysis

It was a tough night for Loup, who was touched up for a three-run homer at the hands of Yan Gomes in the eighth inning. The bomb extended the Indians lead to six, and essentially put the game on ice for Cleveland. With one swing of the bat, his ERA skyrocketed from 0.71 to 2.63.

Loup picked up his first win of the season Friday, allowing a hit and striking out one over an inning of work against the Rays.

EDGE Analysis

Toronto's bullpen deployed five relievers Friday after starter Francisco Liriano failed to get out of the fourth inning. Loup was in the right place at the right time, as the Jays put up seven runs while he was the pitcher on record during the 8-4 comeback victory. Despite owning a career-worst 1.63 WHIP, Loup's managed to avoid damage to maintain a career-best 0.77 ERA.

Loup has managed to tiptoe around a 1.69 WHIP en route to an impressive 0.84 ERA through his first 10 appearances of 2017.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander has played with fire this season, and his numbers suggest that it's only a matter of time before he gets burned. Loup's 6.8 BB/9 is ranks 81st out of 84 qualified AL relievers. He's managed to avoid a disaster by posting an unsustainable 94.4 percent strand rate. Now that fellow southpaw J.P. Howell (shoulder) has returned from the disabled list, Loup will no longer serve as the club's primary lefty out of the bullpen.
