Gavin Lux News
Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman/outfielder Gavin Lux will make his first start of this year's postseason in Tuesday's Game 4. He will be playing center field and batting sixth in the lineup as the Dodgers face San Francisco Giants right-hander Anthony DeSclafani. Lux has gone 3-for-8 with a home run and four RBI over his career against DeSclafani. Lux has pinch-hit in each game of the NLDS so far, but has failed to record a hit, going 0-for-3. He's now just 2-for-13 with a home run across nine career postseason games over the last three years.
Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman/outfielder Gavin Lux (neck) is not in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the San Diego Padres. Cody Bellinger is getting the start in center field and batting eighth in the game. Lux suffered a neck injury while attempting to run down a fly ball in Wednesday's game. He is being considered day-to-day. The 23-year-old has seen his most exposure to the majors this year, playing in 101 games so far. He's been a significant disappointment from a fantasy perspective as he's failed to excel in any statistic, slashing .243/.327/.365 with seven home runs, four stolen bases, 46 RBI and 49 runs.
Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Gavin Lux (neck) suffered a neck injury after colliding with the wall when attempting to catch a fly ball in Wednesday night's game. He was removed from the game and Cody Bellinger came in to replace him. After the game, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters that Lux suffered a neck stinger during the collision. The severity of the injury is not known at this point and Lux should be considered day-to-day. The 23-year-old was 0-for-2 in Wednesday's game before the injury. He's slashing .243/.327/.365 with seven home runs, 46 RBI and 49 runs over 101 games on the year.
Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Gavin Lux was a strong breakout candidate and draft sleeper in 2020 after being ranked the #2 prospect in all of baseball. He was supposed to compete for a starting job early on and earn a place in the potent Dodger lineup, possibly earning Rookie of the Year honors. Instead, he reported to camp late after the delayed spring training and wasn't prepared to join the big-league club. With no minor league season to speak of, Lux spent much of the season at the team's alternative site. He was finally called up on August 27 but in one month of play, he produced a slash line of .175/.246/.349 with three home runs in 63 at-bats.The letdown has led to a depressed ADP for Lux around 240 overall in early NFBC drafts. The uncertainty surrounding his pro readiness makes him too risky to select as a starting second baseman. He now becomes a late flier with tremendous upside, however. Lux has huge power potential for a middle infielder and had shown mastery of every minor-league level until last season. Kike Hernandezsigned with the Boston Red Sox so only utility player Chris Taylor stands in the way of regular playing time. It is really Lux himself that stands in his own way. If he is motivated and mature enough to handle the show, he could be a breakout performer (finally). Manager Dave Roberts has praised Taylor for his defensive versatility, meaning they like him all over the field and not just second base. It also helps that Lux has been swinging a hot bat this spring. Over 31 Cactus League at-bats, he's slashing .387/.424/.484 with five RBI. He's also hitting .429 vs. LHP (seven AB's). Lux looks like a safe bet to make the Opening Day roster and if he continues to hit well then he'll be getting regular AB's, which his current ADP isn't factoring in. We recommend pouncing on Lux shortly after the first 12 second basemen are off the draft board, possibly as high as 150 overall.
