The Eastern League has announced that Altoona Curve outfielder Jordan Luplow has been named their Player Week from this past week (May 29th-June 4th).
Luplow was a third round selection of the Pirates in the 2014 MLB Draft. Last week, he posted a .577 on base percentage, and went on a power surge, hitting five home runs.
Recently, I did a post on how the Pirates already have more breakout prospects this year compared to last season, but for some reason, I did not mention Luplow. He is having a strong 2017 for the Curve, as his 13 home runs and .964 OPS are each third best in the EL.
