Luplow remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Stuck in the short side of a platoon in right field with Tyler Naquin, Luplow has seen few opportunities recently while the Indians have faced a spate of right-handed starting pitchers. Luplow will remain on the bench for the 12th time in 14 games Sunday.
Luplow is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Luplow will head to the bench after cracking the lineup each of the past three games, with Cleveland opposing right-handed starting pitchers in each of those contests. At this stage, Luplow still appears to be stuck in the short side of a platoon in right field with Tyler Naquin.
Luplow will start in right field and bat cleanup Thursday against the Rangers.
Luplow looks to be stuck in the short end of a platoon with Tyler Naquin, but he'll crack the lineup for a second straight game with the Indians facing another left-handed starting pitcher (Mike Minor).

Luplow is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Tyler Naquin will man right field while Luplow remains on the bench for the second straight game while the Indians oppose another right-handed starting pitcher (Anthony DeSclafani). Though his .831 OPS on the season well outpaces that of Naquin (.703), Luplow looks to be stuck in a short-side platoon role for now.
Luplow is not starting Friday against the Yankees, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
No Cleveland corner outfielder appears to have a particularly firm hold on a starting job at the moment. Oscar Mercado starts in left Friday, with Tyler Naquin in right.
Luplow went 3-for-5 with a home run, double, three RBI and an additional run in Wednesday's 9-7 win over the Twins.
Luplow made his second straight start following the demotion of Greg Allen, who appeared to unseat Luplow as a regular in the outfield before being optioned to Triple-A Columbus. Though he may not have much job security with Tyler Naquin (calf) returning from the 10-day injured list to take Allen's spot, Luplow made his case for sticking in the lineup with his clutch two-run home run, which helped the Tribe overcome a 5-1 deficit. Though Luplow hasn't had a full-time role for a good chunk of the season, his eight long balls on the season are good for fourth on the team.
Luplow is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the White Sox.
Greg Allen and Oscar Mercado will pick up the starts at the corner-outfield spots and appear to have vaulted ahead of Luplow on the depth chart for the time being. Luplow will be on the bench for the fifth time in seven games and looks like he may only be viewed as a short-side platoon option in the outfield, despite finishing May with an impressive .883 OPS and seven home runs.
Luplow is not in Saturday's lineup against the White Sox, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Luplow has not started against a right-handed pitcher since May 26, with his last two starts coming against lefties and four days off mixed in. Greg Allen will start in left field and hit seventh.

Luplow went 1-for-4 with a home run in Thursday's loss to the White Sox.
Luplow accounted for Cleveland's only homer of the night with a solo shot off starter Manny Banuelos to leadoff the sixth inning. The 25-year-old is off to a relatively mediocre start this season, batting .244/.296/.522 with seven home runs, 15 runs scored and 14 RBI through 90 plate appearances.

Luplow is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics.
Even though he'll be limited to a bench role in the series finale, Luplow saw his playing-time outlook improve after the Indians designated Carlos Gonzalez for assignment. With the veteran out of the picture, everyday spots in the outfield should both be available for Luplow and rookie Oscar Mercado -- at least until Tyler Naquin (calf) and/or Bradley Zimmer (side) return from the injured list. Mike Freeman will pick up a start in left field Wednesday in place of Luplow, but Freeman looks primed to handle more of a utility job moving forward.
Luplow will sit Tuesday against Oakland, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Luplow has five homers in his last 10 games, but that's evidently not been enough to secure him an everyday role in the starting lineup. He sits for the second time in three games, with Oscar Mercado again starting in right field.
Luplow is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
Luplow smacked a two-run home run in Saturday's 4-1 win, giving him his third long ball in his last four starts. The 25-year-old has enjoyed a nice power surge this season with a .274 ISO -- 100 points better than his mark from 2018. Though he'll cede a start in the outfield to fresh callup Oscar Mercado, Luplow should at least stick in a semi-regular role if his slugging doesn't trail off dramatically from here on out.
Luplow went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs in Tuesday's 9-0 victory over the White Sox.
Serving as the cleanup hitter, Luplow hit a two-run homer off Manny Banuelos in the fourth inning and added a solo shot in the sixth inning off Josh Osich. The homers were his third and fourth of the season, and he is 7-for-20 since May 9. Luplow now sports a .280/.339/.560 slash line for the season.
Luplow will start in right field and occupy the cleanup spot Tuesday against the White Sox, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.
One of the few Indians players swinging a hot bat at the moment, Luplow will stick in the lineup for the fifth time in six games, slotting in between Carlos Santana and Jose Ramirez. Though the Indians called up one of their top prospects in Oscar Mercado to replace everyday outfielder Tyler Naquin (calf), there could be regular room for Mercado and Luplow in the lineup if both perform merely at acceptable levels. Carlos Gonzalez will head to the bench Tuesday and owns an ugly .221/.272/.302 slash line on the season, putting him at major risk of losing out on a full-time gig, if not his spot on the 40-man roster.
Luplow went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Athletics.
Luplow drove in his third run of the season in the first inning on a sacrifice fly to left field, scoring Mike Freeman. Luplow is slashing .286/.354/.476 with two homers and a stolen base through 18 games this season.
Luplow went 2-for-3 with a pair of solo home runs in a 5-0 rain-shortened victory against the White Sox on Thursday.
The game was called after five innings, so Luplow didn't get the chance to go for a third or maybe even fourth bomb, but this power performance was certainly encouraging. Luplow struggled to start the year and then spent some time at Triple-A. That seems to have helped, as he is hitting .333 (6-for-18) with four extra-base hits since returning to the Indians roster on April 28.
