Gavin Lux Endures Rough Evening

Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Gavin Lux continued a frustrating trend when he struck out twice in Monday's 3-2 win over the San Francisco Giants. Lux, who finished 0-for-3, has struck out twice in four of his last six games as Monday's game offset a two-game stretch that saw him go 5-for-6 with a pair of homers, three RBI and three runs scored. He's hitting .222/.273/.330 with five homers, 27 RBI, and 31 runs scored with four steals in five attempts. Fantasy managers can find more consistent options at second as Lux appears unlikely to come close to the promise that once made him a top-tier prospect.

Gavin Lux Sitting Against A Lefty

Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Gavin Lux is getting the day off on Friday against the hosting Detroit Tigers with a left-hander on the mound. With Lux on the bench, Chris Taylor will get the start at the keystone and will hit seventh against Tigers left-hander Tarik Skubal. Lux just hasn't been able to figure it out offensively for the Dodgers while hitting near the bottom of their stacked lineup, and he's hitting just .191 (4-for-21) with none of his three home runs on the season against southpaws. Also, in the last 14 days, he's gone 6-for-35 (.171) with a homer, three RBI and five strikeouts in 12 games. There's no reason for DFS managers to be excited about Taylor on Friday, either, as he's hitting just .157 (8-for-51) with one of his three homers against lefties in 2024.

Gavin Lux, Jason Heyward Out Against A Southpaw

Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Gavin Lux and outfielder Jason Heyward are both out of the lineup on Thursday with the team facing left-hander Ty Blach and the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. Chris Taylor will take over at second base and bat ninth, while Teoscar Hernandez is in right field and batting cleanup for the Blue. Miguel Vargas will draw into left field and bat in the seven-hole. Taylor has hit .286 with an .833 OPS, a home run and four RBI in 28 career at-bats against Blach, but he's in the nine-hole and has hit just .115 (11-for-96) this year with a homer and nine RBI. Hernandez has never faced Blach in his career but is nevertheless an attractive DFS play in the heart of the Dodgers' batting order at hitter-friendly Coors Field. He's hitting .253 (20-for-79) with eight of his 18 homers this year against lefties.

Gavin Lux, Jason Heyward Out Against Lefty

Both Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Gavin Lux and outfielder Jason Heyward are sitting on Wednesday against the New York Mets with left-hander David Peterson on the mound. Mookie Betts will slide over to second base, allowing Miguel Rojas to enter the lineup at shortstop while hitting eighth in the batting order. Teoscar Hernandez shifts to right and Miguel Vargas will start in left field and bat in the nine-hole. It will be the second straight game on the bench for Lux after he sat out the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader. Lux has had a tough year in 2024, hitting just .205/.256/.281 with one homer and 12 RBI in 146 at-bats. Heyward has been even worse after missing a good chunk of time due to a back injury. The 34-year-old veteran is hitting .184 (7-for-38) with a homer and four RBI. It's hard to justify using either Rojas or Vargas in DFS lineups at the bottom of LA's lineup.

Max Muncy, Gavin Lux Sitting Saturday

Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Max Muncy, shortstop Gavin Lux and outfielder Josh Outman, who all hit left-handed, are out of Saturday's lineup against left-hander Yusei Kikuchi and the Toronto Blue Jays. Enrique Hernandez will play third and bat sixth, Miguel Rojas is at shortstop and hitting eighth, and rookie Andy Pages is in center field and will bat seventh for the Blue. Muncy is hitting a modest .258 (23-for-89) this year with five home runs and 18 RBI, but he's gone just 5-for-25 (.200) with one homer and 10 strikeouts against lefties. Lux has struggled in general, hitting .183 (13-for-71) and has yet to go deep. Outman's fantasy stock has really fallen as he's fallen into a platoon with Pages. Hernandez is the DFS play to consider with a .256 career average and 55 homers in 1,417 plate appearances against southpaws. He's also hitting .308 in 13 career at-bats against Kikuchi.

Max Muncy, Gavin Lux Out Sick Tuesday

Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Max Muncy and shortstop Gavin Lux are both out of camp on Tuesday due to illnesses. Muncy has been out of Cactus League action for a few days and could miss another day or two while resting up. Both infielders should be feeling just fine for their two-game series in Korea against the division-rival San Diego Padres on March 20-21, though. The 33-year-old Muncy has become injury-prone in recent seasons and won't help fantasy managers with his average, but he can still produce plenty of home runs and RBI in a stacked Dodgers lineup. Lux suffered a season-ending knee injury last spring and missed all of 2023. But he's healthy now and will serve as LA's starting shortstop to open the year. The 26-year-old former first-rounder hasn't seen much success at the big-league level, but he has an opportunity to break out in 2024 if he can stay healthy.

Gavin Lux's Defense "Driver" Of Decision To Shift Back To Second Base

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts stated on Friday that infielder Gavin Lux will shift to second base while Mookie Betts will be handling shortstop duties. Lux's defense at second base was a crucial driver in the decision to put Lux at keystone and move Betts over shortstop. He experienced issues throwing the ball during spring training. The move is "permanent, for now," said Roberts. Lux will play most of the season at second base and could sit against lefties. The 26-year-old played 129 games at second base in 2022 before missing all of last season with a torn ACL and MCL. He slashed .276/.346/.399 with six home runs, 42 RBI, 66 runs, and seven stolen bases over 471 plate appearances. His presence will provide stability at a position that the Dodgers juggled around in 2023. Lux has excellent plate discipline (10.1 BB%), an NFBC ADP of 260, and will look to bounce back in 2024 from last season's gruesome injury. RotoBaller has Lux ranked as the 28th overall second baseman, and he could be a late-round value if he can come close to his 2022 totals despite hitting in the bottom third of a loaded Dodgers lineup.

No Guarantee Gavin Lux Is Dodgers Shortstop

Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Gavin Lux has experienced issues throwing in his recovery from a torn ACL and that has led to the club being noncommittal to him as their starting shortstop. Heading into the spring, the Dodgers were convinced that the Wisconsin native would be their everyday shortstop, but now it is no sure thing. The Dodgers are fully loaded across their roster, but shortstop depth is one of their weaker positions. If Lux were unable to play shortstop or need more than the average day off, veterans Enrique Hernandez and Miguel Rojas would be the logical replacement. Rojas and Hernandez can be ignored for now and managers should proceed with caution in redraft leagues with Lux.

Dodgers Won't Commit To Gavin Lux As Primary Shortstop

Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Gavin Lux hasn't been penciled in as the team's primary shortstop quite yet, reports Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. While the club was adamant heading into Spring Training that Lux would be their starting shortstop, they have since become non-committal on the topic, largely due to Lux's throwing issues as he recovers from a torn ACL. Addressing the topic directly, manager Dave Roberts said, "I don't know what's going to happen, but I do know that it will be in the vein of whatever gives us the best chance to win." The Dodgers open their regular season schedule in less than two weeks, and as of now, it's unclear who will be patrolling shortstop. If Lux doesn't earn the job, look for veterans Miguel Rojas, Chris Taylor, and Enrique Hernandez to vie for the spot.

Gavin Lux Expects To Play In Spring Opener Thursday

Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Gavin Lux (knee), who suffered a season-ending knee injury in spring training last year, said he expects to be in the lineup on Thursday against the San Diego Padres for the Cactus League opener on Thursday. Lux ditched the knee brace he had been wearing on his surgically repaired right knee last week, although he's still wearing a compression sleeve after having surgery to fix both his ACL and LCL. The 26-year-old has been fully cleared otherwise, though, and will be LA's starting shortstop in 2024. The former first-rounder was pretty mediocre in 2021 and 2022 for the Dodgers, hitting .261 with 13 homers, 88 RBI and 11 steals in 231 games. Lux has shown solid plate discipline and resides in an excellent offense, but hitting at the bottom of the Dodgers' lineup isn't going to give him a ton of upside, and he's probably not going to run all that much coming off major knee surgery.
