The Toronto Blue Jays will soon be getting more relief for their struggling bullpen.

Left-hander Aaron Loup has joined the triple-A Buffalo Bisons on a rehab assignment, and is available for Saturday’s game against the Pawtucket Red Sox.

Loup, who’s been sidelined with a forearm flexor strain since March, made three appearances for single-A Dunedin this past week.

Loup is one of three Blue Jays players in Buffalo on rehab assignment, joining second baseman Devon Travis and right-hander Bo Schultz.
