Aaron Loup (elbow) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Saturday with High-A Dunedin.

Loup pitched in an extended spring training game Wednesday and felt fine. If he wakes up Thursday with no issues, it'll be off and running with the rehab stint. The left-hander has been out all year with a flexor strain.

Per Blue Jays trainer George Poulis, Aaron Loup (elbow) is expected to throw a bullpen session on Monday.

Poulis said that Loup is doing "great" in his rehab. A flexor strain in the southpaw's pitching elbow sidelined him through the entirety of spring training and has likewise kept him off the mound during the first month of the 2016 campaign. While a return in May is possible, the Blue Jays are taking it slow and steady with Loup.

Baby steps for the injured left-hander. "It’s just a matter of building him back up," head trainer George Poulis said Sunday. "No timeline on him either but hopefully he progresses normally without any setbacks."

Aaron Loup (elbow) is currently playing catch on flat ground.

Sun, Apr 10, 2016 12:43:00 PM

Blue Jays placed LHP Aaron Loup on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 25, with a sore left elbow.

Loup didn't make an appearance this spring due to a flexor strain in his left elbow. He felt more pain after attempting to throw recently, so he received a cortisone shot and it's unclear when he'll get back on the mound. The Blue Jays will be without him for the early part of the season at the very least.
