News: Loup is among the candidates to close for the Jays if Aaron Sanchez is used as a starter to begin the season, the Blue Jays' official site reports.
Impact: Most likely, Brett Cecil will close if the Jays don't bring in a veteran option, while Loup would take on a more prominent setup role. Still, the job is relatively wide open depending on the decision regarding how Sanchez will be used. Loup's walk rate spiked last season (from 4.6% in 2013 to 10.6%), and he may be better suited as a setup option anyway given his sub-20.0% strikeout rate (career 6.9 K/9).
