• Dress for the ALCS with Blue Jays gear
The return of Loup should go a long way in providing more depth to a bullpen that is without lefty Brett Cecil because of a torn left calf muscle. Cecil possibly could return for the World Series if the Blue Jays advance, but he is not eligible for the ALCS.
Loup has made four appearances in the postseason, with one earned run over two innings. He will be used as a situational left-hander out of the bullpen and will combine with Mark Lowe and Aaron Sanchez as the primary setup men for closer Roberto Osuna.
