The Braves added outfielder Jordan Luplow on a Major League Deal yesterday, and although he may not be the sexiest name on the market, he brings a lot to the table. If you recall, the club traded for Sam Hilliard at the beginning of the offseason, and the two players aren’t that dissimilar.

Luplow’s strong arm makes him an asset in the outfield as well:

Additionally, Luplow absolutely crushes left-handed pitching to the tune of an .841 OPS for his career:

I don’t think Luplow is the future in Atlanta, but at worst, the Braves got a good defender who can give you competitive at-bats against lefties. That’s an improvement at this point.
