Lux (forearm) will bat seventh and play left field Saturday against the Reds, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Lux was scratched from the lineup ahead of Friday's series opener after a ball from a pitching machine struck him in the forearm. Previous reports indicated he'd be on the bench all weekend, but he's evidently healed faster than expected. His absence could be related to Cody Bellinger's non-displaced rib fracture, which will keep Bellinger on the bench Saturday and potentially longer.
