Braves' Jordan Luplow: Sent to Triple-A
Atlanta optioned Luplow to Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.
Luplow had seemed likely to platoon in left field with Eddie Rosario when he was signed, but he's been passed on the depth chart by non-roster invitee Kevin Pillar. The 29-year-old should get another look in the majors eventually.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jordan Luplow: Making outfield debut
Luplow (oblique) will start in left field and bat seventh in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Orioles.
Due to a sore right oblique that he sustained in the early stages of spring training, Luplow didn't make his Grapefruit League debut until Sunday, when he went 0-for-2 with a walk and a run scored while serving as Atlanta's designated hitter in an 11-3 win over the Pirates. With Luplow checking out fine following that contest, he'll now get the opportunity to play the outfield for the first time this spring. The righty-hitting Luplow profiles as a potential short-side platoon mate in left field for the lefty-hitting Eddie Rosario.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jordan Luplow: Making spring debut
Luplow (oblique) will serve as Atlanta's designated hitter and No. 5 batter in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Pirates.
Luplow is set to make his spring debut after he had been slowed through much of camp by a sore right oblique. Atlanta is easing Luplow back into the mix Sunday in a non-defensive role, but he should be ready to resume playing the corner outfield by the end of the team's Grapefruit League slate....

Braves' Jordan Luplow: Dealing with sore oblique
Luplow acknowledged Thursday that he's been battling some right oblique soreness, Justin Toscano of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The discomfort popped up as Lulpow was taking live at-bats just before the start of spring training. It's a few weeks behind him by now and the expectation is that he will be fully recovered by the opening of the 2023 regular season. The 29-year-old outfielder signed a one-year, $1.4 million contract with Atlanta in December.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Jordan Luplow: Joins Atlanta
Atlanta signed Luplow to a one-year, $1.4 million contract Monday.
Luplow's poor 2022 campaign with Arizona included a .176/.274/.361 slash line and 28 RBI. He was designated for assignment in November. At this point in his career, the righty-hitting Luplow is likely limited to short-side platoon duty, but even that role might not be immediately available with Marcell Ozuna and Travis d'Arnaud still on the roster. The 29-year-old has a career .226/.337/.505 slash line and 125 wRC+ against southpaws.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: DFA'd by Arizona
Luplow was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.
Luplow was acquired by Arizona in November 2021, and he won't retain his spot on the 40-man roster since he struggled to a .176/.274/.361 slash line in 83 games during his first season in the desert.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Three hits against Giants
Luplow went 3-for-4 with a run scored in Saturday's win over the Giants.
Luplow's .175 average this season is the worst of his career; however, he has gone 5-for-6 in his last two games. The outfielder has been particularly bad against right-handed pitching during 2022, recording a .595 OPS over 106 plate appearances compared to a .680 OPS over 123 plate appearances facing lefties....

Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Recalled to majors
Luplow was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Monday.
Since being sent down to Triple-A on Aug. 29, Luplow has played in 10 games for Reno and mashed a 1.089 OPS with 14 RBI. The 28-year-old will provide depth for Arizona's outfield and likely see the field mostly when facing left-handed pitching. Wilmer Difo was designated for assignment in a corresponding move....

Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Sent down Monday
Luplow was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Monday, Theo Mackie of The Arizona Republic reports.
Luplow's playing time decreased over the last several weeks, and he'll lose his spot on the big-league roster after Corbin Carroll was called up Monday. Luplow has slashed .163/.261/.376 with 11 home runs, 27 RBI, 25 runs and five stolen bases over 73 games in the majors this year, and he should see more consistent playing time with the minor-league club....

Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Clubs 11th homer
Luplow went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Saturday's 9-2 win over the Rockies.
Luplow delivered an RBI single to put Arizona ahead in the first inning and a solo shot to pad the lead in the sixth. The long ball was his first homer since his inside-the-park trot June 21. The 28-year-old outfielder is still primarily limited to a short-side platoon role -- he last started against a righty June 22, which was as a late addition to the lineup. Luplow has made the most of his limited role with 11 homers, 23 RBI, 22 runs scored and four stolen bases, but he's slashing only .178/.268/.452 through 153 plate appearances.... See More ...

Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Added to Wednesday's lineup
Luplow was added to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.
The 28-year-old was initially slated to get a day off Wednesday but will start in left field and bat sixth after David Peralta (back) was a late scratch. Luplow went 1-for-11 with a two-run homer, a walk and four strikeouts over the last three games.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Hits inside-the-park homer
Luplow went 1-for-4 with a two-run inside-the-park home run and a walk in Tuesday's 3-2 extra-innings loss to the Padres.
Luplow opened the scoring with hustle in the third inning, with his hit to center field bouncing away from Trent Grisham. While it wasn't the most conventional of homers, it was Luplow's 10th of the year in 42 contests, putting him just five shy of his career high in long balls. The outfielder has added a paltry .171 batting average and .279 on-base percentage, but he's slugging .476 with 20 RBI, 20 runs scored, four stolen bases and a pair of doubles this year. As long as David Peralta (back) is on the shelf, Luplow should pick up additional playing time.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Homers twice Friday
Luplow went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Friday's 7-2 win over the Twins.
Luplow gave the Diamondbacks the lead twice, hitting a two-run blast in the first inning and a solo shot in the third. Prior to Friday, he had gone 4-for-24 through 10 games in June. The outfielder hasn't had a lot of success at the plate with a .183/.287/.495 slash line, but he's managed nine homers, 18 RBI, 19 runs scored and four stolen bases across 108 plate appearances. He's likely to make most of his starts against left-handed pitchers on the short side of a platoon with David Peralta in left field.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Leading off versus lefty
Luplow will start in left field and bat leadoff in Monday's game against the Reds.
Luplow will make his second straight start out of the leadoff spot against a southpaw pitcher (Mike Minor) after he went 0-for-2 with three walks while scoring three times against the Phillies and southpaw Ranger Suarez in Sunday's 13-1 win. He'll be filling in for David Peralta in left field, but Luplow still looks to be stuck in a short-side platoon role.... See More ... See Less

Luplow went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-0 win over Cincinnati.
The righty-swinging Luplow got the start against lefty Mike Minor and went yard for the seventh time. The outfielder is batting just .182 (14-for-77) this year, but half of his 14 hits have cleared fences.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Smacks double in return
Luplow (foot) went 1-for-3 with a double and a walk in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Pirates.
Luplow missed a week after foiling a ball off his foot, logging just one pinch hitting appearance in that span. The outfielder was able record a hit Saturday, one of four in the game for the Diamondbacks. He's slashing only .176/.253/.471 with six home runs, 13 RBI, 10 runs scored, three stolen bases and two doubles in 75 plate appearances this year, so he'll likely be limited to a reserve role with most of his starts coming against left-handed pitchers....

Luplow entered Friday's game in the fifth inning as a pinch hitter for Daulton Varsho, who was forced to leave the game with a shoulder injury. Luplow eventually walked during his at-bat and stayed in the game for two innings before Cooper Hummel pinch hit for him in the seventh. Luplow is considered day-to-day.... See More ... See Less
