Source: Mets agree to deal with lefty Aaron Loup

With Brad Hand gone to the Nationals, the Mets have found a different left-hander for their bullpen.

The Mets have agreed to a deal with free agent Aaron Loup, a source told MLB.com on Wednesday. The club has not confirmed the deal, which is pending a physical.

The deal gives the Mets the type of left-handed stalwart they were looking for. Loup, 33, posted a 2.52 ERA in 25 innings last season, striking out 22 batters while holding lefties to a .212/.278/.303 slash line. That’s an improvement over his career mark of a .621 OPS from left-handed hitters.

I'd prefer to bring back Justin Wilson, but this is fine.

I know the headline here is saying they've agreed on a contract. Still, the phrase "Mets agree to deal with" sounds like it's a problem they're finally going to resolve. For example, "Mets agree to deal with rat problem in Citi Field concession stands".

In lieu of dealing with corpse stuck in Home Run Apple, Mets agree to deal with Aaron Loup.

It's a missed opportunity that he's never signed with Cleveland and gone to the moon.

That's been resolved, as it is my understanding that the Wilpons are no longer in ownership.

Aaron Loop always seems like he's inches from hitting LHB on every pitch.

623 career PA vs. LHB: 25 HBP. That feels like a lot.

They need to get Randy Wolf out of retirement.

"Mets agree to deal with this guy Aaron Loup who's been causing problems for the boss, no questions asked"
