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
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Smacks HR in win
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....

Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Returns to lineup
Luplow (foot) is starting Saturday against the Pirates, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports.
Luplow exited the Diamondbacks' loss to the Dodgers on May 27 after fouling a ball off his left foot, but he went 0-for-2 with a strikeout as a pinch hitter during Tuesday's win over Atlanta. The 28-year-old is serving as the designated hitter and batting sixth Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Leaves with foot injury
Luplow fouled a ball off his left foot and was eventually removed from Friday's 6-4 loss to the Dodgers, Jack Magruder of MLB.com reports.
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
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Comes off bench to hit homer
Luplow swatted a pinch-hit three-run home run in Tuesday's 8-6 win over the Royals.
Luplow hit for third baseman Jake Hager in the sixth inning and launched a game-tying shot as part of a five-run frame. He's batting just .175 (11-for-63), but six of his 11 hits have left the park. That leads to crazy advanced metrics, like a .147 BABIP and .301 ISO.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Starts against righty
Luplow will serve as Arizona's designated hitter and No. 7 batter in Thursday's game against the Cubs.
Luplow has mostly operated as a short-side platoon player for Arizona this season, but he'll find himself in the lineup against a right-handed pitcher (Marcus Stroman) as the Diamondbacks open a four-game set in Chicago. With Cooper Hummel (illness) on the COVID-19-related injured list, Luplow could be in store for a brief run as an everyday player.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Goes yard in nightcap
Luplow went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers. Earlier in the day, he went 0-for-2 as a substitute in right field.
Luplow walloped his fifth home run of the season in the first inning off Tyler Anderson. He's batting just .188 with nine hits in 48 at-bats, but five of those hits have cleared fences. Alongside 18 strikeouts (34.6 K%), Luplow has been an all-or-nothing hitter.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Swats pinch-hit homer
Luplow entered Wednesday's game in the eighth inning as a pinch hitter and hit a two-run home run in an 11-3 loss to Miami.
The final score doesn't suggest the home run was meaningful, but Luplow's blast tied the game at three runs apiece before the Marlins plated eight in the top of the ninth. Luplow has four home runs in 33 at-bats this season and has homered in back-to-back contests. The Diamondbacks are off Thursday, but Luplow should be in the starting lineup Friday against Cubs left-hander Drew Smyly.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Slams third homer
Luplow went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 9-3 win over the Marlins.
Luplow's first-inning blast wiped out the 2-0 lead Miami took in the top of the frame. From there, it was all Madison Bumgarner and key hits from the lower half of the order. The homer was Luplow's third of the season while working in a part-time role. The righty-hitting outfielder is in the lineup when the Diamondbacks face left-handed starters.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Pilfers two bags in loss
Luplow started in center field and went 0-for-3 with a walk, two stolen bases and a run scored in Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Rockies.
With a lefty on the bump, Luplow was in the lineup and batting second. He scored Arizona's lone run in the eighth inning after stealing second and third base. At the time, it put Arizona up 1-0, but Mark Melancon blew the save. Luplow has three steals, matching his MLB high in swipes set in 2019 as a member of Cleveland. He stole double-digit bases twice in the minors -- 10 in 2014 in rookie ball and 11 in 2015 in Low-A -- but there's little evidence to indicate the 28-year-old will deliver much value in the category at the major-league level....

Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Four-game starting run ends
Luplow is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.
Since returning from the injured list April 25, Luplow has made a strong push for a near-everyday role. He's appeared in eight of Arizona's nine games since being activated, starting five times while going 5-for-21 with two home runs, two walks, five RBI, four runs and a stolen base. Arizona likely envisioned the righty-hitting Luplow filling the short side of a platoon in the outfield, but the ongoing struggles of designated hitter Seth Beer and first baseman Christian Walker have allowed Luplow to push for more work against right-handed pitching....

Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Another multi-hit game
Luplow went 2-for-4 with two RBI, a run scored and a stolen base in Monday's 5-4 win over Miami.
Luplow did most of his work in the fifth inning Monday. He knocked an RBI single, swiped second base and scored on David Peralta's base hit. He later brought in another run with a seventh-inning single. Luplow has gone 4-for-8 with four RBI and two home runs over his last two games.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Goes yard twice
Luplow went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in Sunday's 7-5 loss to the Cardinals.
Considering Luplow had just one hit in his first 11 at-bats this season, this was a surprising performance. The outfielder has seen a little more than just the short side of a platoon -- it appears he'll serve as a fourth outfielder for the Diamondbacks to begin with. He logged a .202/.326/.454 slash line with 11 home runs, 28 RBI, 23 runs scored and a stolen base in 62 games between Cleveland and Tampa Bay last season.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Enters as pinch hitter
Luplow entered Monday's game as a pinch hitter and flied out in the eighth inning of a 4-0 loss to the Dodgers.
Luplow was activated off the injured list after missing the start of the season due to an oblique injury. He'll serve as outfield depth and likely start when Arizona faces left-handers.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Returns from injured list
Luplow (oblique) was activated off the 10-day injured list Monday.
Luplow has been out since the start of the season with a strained oblique but is ready to go without making a rehab assignment. He isn't in the lineup for Monday's game against the Dodgers but should get the chance to carve out some playing time on a team that's hitting .189/.286/.326 as a whole.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jordan Luplow: Nears return
Luplow (oblique) could be activated at some point during the Diamondbacks' upcoming homestand that opens Friday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
Arizona manager Torey Lovullo did not specify whether Luplow would return closer to the beginning or end of the homestand. The Diamondbacks host the Mets beginning Friday then the Dodgers on Monday. The outfielder had five at-bats and played five innings in the field during an exhibition game Monday at the team's training facility. The manager left open the possibility that Luplow and Nick Ahmed (shoulder) could head out on a rehab assignment before joining the MLB roster.... See More ... See Less
