2022 Diamondbacks Reviews, #45: Jordan Luplow

When Mike Hazen shipped minor leaguer Ronny Simon to the Tampa Bay Rays for Jordan Luplow in November of 2021, it seemed to fill a pretty obvious gap as a platoon bat and/or utility player. Additionally, he could provide some *insert valuable veteran leadership cliche* here for a squad that was primed to be substantially younger and inexperienced in 2022 as MLB’s fourth-ranked farm system in the preseason started paying dividends. While we’ll never fully know the impact Luplow had on the youngsters, the on-field results were certainly disappointing - even accounting for relatively modest expectations for the eight-year veteran.
