Jordan Luplow joining Indians' bench Thursday afternoon

Cleveland Indians outfielder Jordan Luplow is not in the starting lineup for Thursday afternoon's series finale against left-hander Matt Boyd and the Detroit Tigers.

What It Means:

Luplow will grab a seat while Bradley Zimmer makes his MLB season debut in Thursday's matinee. The 28-year-old former top prospect will start in center field and bat ninth. Harold Ramirez will be in left as the cleanup man and Eddie Rosario will start in right and hit fifth. Luplow could potentially lose playing time if Zimmer shows well.

Per numberFire's MLB Heat Map, the Indians' implied total is 3.9 runs on Thursday. Boyd has a 19.4 strikeout percentage with a 6.0 walk percentage this season, and his ground ball-to-fly ball ratio is the second-lowest out of Thursday's 22 listed starters.
