    Aaron Loup is a study in contradictions. He's a 6-foot, 175-pound lefthander who throws from a low-three-quarters slot, yet he has a solid-average fastball and can touch 93 mph. Despite that heater, a sweeping slider and fine control (a 61-9 K-BB ratio in 59 innings this spring), he gets hit harder than he should (5.93 ERA, .284 opponent average, nine homers). His ERA has gotten progressively worse in three seasons at Tulane, but he has the stuff and strike-throwing ability to be a successful reliever in pro ball.
