2017 FANTASY BASEBALL WELCOME TO THE SHOW: JORDAN LUPLOW OUTFIELDER PITTSBURGH PIRATES

With Gregory Polanco landing on the DL AGAIN this season, the Pittsburgh Pirates decided to give outfield prospect Jordan Luplow his first major league look.  A former 2014 third-round pick, Luplow has been terrific at both Double and Triple-A this season to the tune of 21 total home runs and a .296 batting average.  In fantasy baseball terms, it is always intriguing when a young hitter can combine power and average and that is exactly what Luplow has done this season on the farm.  What has helped Luplow achieve those results are solid BB/9 rates that hover around 10.0 and also a K/9 that generally has stayed between 15.0 and 19.0.  Luplow will play on an everyday basis while Polanco is out and so that alone should make him someone to take a spin with in most fantasy baseball mixed leagues.  See where it goes.
