2022 Player Outlook
Aaron Loup parlayed his excellent 2021 season with the Mets into a nice deal with the Angels. In 2021, Loup went 6-0 with a 0.95 ERA, 9.1 K/9 and 0.94 WHIP across 56.2 innings of work. He allowed a .479 OPS to southpaws, and he fills a massive void for the Angels, as Los Angeles had the seventh-highest bullpen ERA in 2021. Loup dominates lefties, it's just what he does. The Angels' bullpen actually allowed the third-highest batting average to left-handed hitters last season, so Loup checks major boxes for this team. He'll be the primary setup man to Raisel Iglesias, and is only an injury away from stepping into a lucrative closing role. He's very valuable in "solds" leagues, too, as he will help your team's ratios.
