Scouts were flocking to Fresno this season for all the high school talent in the area, but also to see a Fresno State roster heavy with upperclassmen. Luplow stayed healthy as a junior after injury problems in his first two years and had passed Jordan Brink as the Bulldogs' top prospect. He had right shoulder surgery (labrum) as a high school senior, missed 14 games as a sophomore with a left shoulder injury, then left the Cape Cod League early last summer with a knee injury. While his right/right profile and average 6-foot-1, 195-pound frame don't stand out, his hitting ability does. His sound hitting mechanics, solid bat speed and improved approach have resulted in a monster .385/.478/.629 junior season, putting him among the Mountain West Conference leaders in all three categories as the conference tournament opened. He's a decent runner who profiles as a corner outfielder. A prep third baseman, he has an accurate, solid-average arm, making right field a possibility. If teams have no lingering medical concerns, Luplow should hit his way into the first three rounds.
