  • Angels' Aaron Loup: Notches first save

    Loup picked up the save Tuesday against the Tigers, striking out two in a scoreless inning.

    Loup was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the 10th inning after the Tigers tied the game against Carlos Estevez in the ninth. Loup got Javier Baez to ground out before striking out the next two batters, stranding the free runner at second and securing his first save of the season. The 35-year-old Loup's now delivered five straight scoreless appearances (four innings), lowering his ERA to 4.71 with a 1.50 WHIP and 28:11 K:BB across 28.2 innings this year. The left-hander will most likely work in middle relief for the Halos going forward.

  • Angels' Aaron Loup: Comes off injured list

    The Angels reinstated Loup (hamstring) off the 15-day injured list Sunday.

    Loup was scheduled to pitch a simulated game Monday as a final test of his health in his recovery from a hamstring injury, but the Angels were evidently comfortable enough with his progress from the injury to bring him back early. Prior to landing on the shelf, Loup collected four holds and pitched to a 7.00 ERA and 2.11 WHIP in nine innings over 11 appearances.

  • Angels' Aaron Loup: Nearing return

    Loup (hamstring) is expected to face hitters Monday and could embark upon a rehab assignment soon thereafter, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    On Friday, Loup threw his fourth bullpen since hitting the IL, and his session coming up Monday is likely to be a simulated game, per It's not certain that he'll need a rehab stint, but if he does it should be a short one given the veteran reliever is less than three weeks removed from his last game appearance. Loup struggled with a 7.00 ERA and 2.11 WHIP through 11 outings prior to the injury; he attributes the poor numbers to throwing more breaking balls and plans to increase his fastball usage upon his return, per Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register.

  • Angels' Aaron Loup: Logs first save

    Loup saved Saturday's 2-1 win against the Mariners, striking out one in a perfect ninth inning.

    With Jimmy Herget and Jose Quijada struggling in September and Ryan Tepera working Friday, manager Phil Nevin turned to Loup to close out Saturday's one-run win. The 34-year-old retired the heart of Seattle's lineup in order on 12 pitches, though he did allow hard contact in the form of two lineouts. Loup holds a 3.96 ERA and 1.30 WHIP on the season but has been better recently with a 2.25 ERA in 16 innings across 16 appearances since the calendar flipped to August. Look for Loup and Tepera to lead Los Angeles' closer committee to finish the campaign, at least until one of them falters.

  • Angels' Aaron Loup: Reinstated by Angels

  • Angels' Aaron Loup: Tagged with loss Thursday

    Loup (0-3) took the loss against Houston on Thursday, allowing an unearned run on one hit in the 10th inning.

    Loup came on in the 10th and gave up a one-out single to Jeremy Pena that allowed the automatic runner to score, but he got out of the frame without absorbing any additional damage. However, the Angels were unable to respond in the bottom of the frame, saddling the veteran reliever with the tough-luck loss. Loup had a perfect 6-0 record with the Mets last season, but he's dropped all three of his decisions so far in 2022.

  • Angels' Aaron Loup: Tagged with loss Wednesday

    Loup (0-2) took the loss against Tampa Bay on Wednesday, allowing two runs (one earned) on two hits over one inning. He struck out two.

    The Angels battled back to tie the game in the eighth inning, and they turned to Loup when the contest went into extra frames.

This was a rare poor performance by Loup, who has posted a 1.93 ERA, 0.57 WHIP and 15:2 K:BB while notching six holds over 14 innings on the season.
