Lux is out of the lineup Wednesday for the Dodgers' wild-card game against the Cardinals, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

After missing three consecutive games with a neck stinger, Lux was available off the bench for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Brewers, going 0-for-1 with a walk while seeing action in right field. Prior to developing the injury, Lux had started six consecutive games in center field, but Cody Bellinger will patrol that spot in the wild-card contest while being flanked by AJ Pollock and Mookie Betts. The trio of Pollock, Betts and Bellinger is expected to form the Dodgers' primary outfield combination against right-handed pitching throughout the postseason, though Lux or Chris Taylor could replace Bellinger against left-handed starters.
