The Pittsburgh Pirates are reportedly calling up outfielder Jordan Luplow for Friday’s game in San Diego. His college baseball team announced the news on Twitter this evening.

With the Pirates off on Thursday, you will likely see the first part of the transaction, which could possibly be Steven Brault being returned to Indianapolis, unless the Pirates want to keep the extra arm in the bullpen. The second part wouldn’t become official until Friday before the game.
Brian Peloza recently featured Luplow in an article, mentioning what he is working on in Triple-A, while getting ready for the majors. He is hitting .324/.407/.568 in 21 games with Indianapolis. He leads the entire farm system this season with 21 homers.
