Luplow is in line to see an uptick in playing time following the season-ending injury to Gregory Polanco.

Luplow, Pablo Reyes and occasionally Jose Osuna all figure to comprise a right field timeshare with Polanco (shoulder, knee) out for the season. Luplow, who has hit 31 homers in 205 minor-league games over the last two years, has three home runs in 54 at-bats for Pittsburgh in 2018. He's currently hitting just .204, but the average figures to improve with consistent playing time. He'll likely never get a better opportunity to prove himself at the big-league level than the current one.
