Blue Jays trade Aaron Loup to Phillies

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Oakland Athletics Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Blue Jays have traded Aaron Loup to the Phillies or so says Ben Nicholson-Smith. Loup was our longest tenured Blue Jay. I’m not sure who would hold that title now. Kevin Pillar? Yeah I guess it would be him.

No work on who is coming back to the Jays.

We will update when we know more.

Apparently we are getting RHP Jacob Waguespack (you take a guess at pronouncing it).

He is 24. He’s split this season between AA and AAA. Has a 5.23 ERA in 21 games, 15 starts. In 82.2 innings he’s allowed 85 hits. 4 homers, 36 walks and 79 strikeouts.

Apparently he throws a low 90s fastball, 91-94. A slider, curve and change. Drafted by the Pirates in the 37th round of the 2012 draft. He’s moved up the Phillies minor league system pretty quickly.

Here is a happy story about him.
