Blue Jays reliever Aaron Loup says he’s ready to start a rehab assignment on Saturday.  Out since early spring training with left elbow/forearm problems Loup needed just 10-pitches to face three extended spring hitters on Wednesday at the Mattick Complex.  “My arm feels good, I am all right,” said Loup afterwards, “I’ll pitch Saturday for Dunedin and start my rehab.”  A rehab assignment for a pitcher can last up to 30-days and be started and stopped once.
