Lux (hamstring) is rehabbing at the Dodgers' spring training facility and will begin a rehab assignment soon, Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports. Lux has been taking batting practice and sprinting, and he recently indicated that his recovery from a strained left hamstring is going better than expected. A specific date for the start of his rehab assignment has not been determined, but he remains likely to return to the big club in early August. It's unclear where Lux will fit in once he returns, however, as Corey Seager (hand) is slated to return to action Friday and the recently acquired Trea Turner may be able to come off the COVID-19 injured list within the next week.
Lux recently stated that he has been sprinting and that his injured left hamstring is feeling better than expected, Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports. When Lux hit the injured list July 19, the expectation was that he would likely need a fair amount of time to recover. Though a target return date has not yet been set, it's at least promising that the infielder's hamstring has responded well to rehab thus far. Early August remains a reasonable expectation for Lux's return to action.
Lux was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday with a strained left hamstring. Lux was diagnosed with a mild hamstring strain after exiting Sunday's loss to the Rockies and he'll be sidelined for at least the next 10 days. Despite it initially being labeled a mild strain, manager Dave Roberts said the young infielder's recovery "could take some time," per Juan Toribio of MLB.com.
Lux (hamstring) is dealing with a mild strain after exiting Sunday's loss to the Rockies, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Manager Dave Roberts said after Sunday's game that Lux could miss a couple days while he recovers, but he'll undergo further testing to determine the extent of the issue. Chris Taylor and Zach McKinstry could see time at shortstop if the 23-year-old is ultimately sidelined, and he should be considered day-to-day for now.
Lux was removed from Sunday's game against the Rockies in the bottom of the ninth inning due to an apparent left hamstring injury, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Lux grounded out to end the top of the ninth inning, and he appeared to grab his left hamstring as he ran out of the batter's box. He was able to limp off the field under his own power, but he was replaced defensively in the bottom half of the frame. Prior to Lux's departure, he went 0-for-4 with a strikeout. Whether the injury forces him to miss additional time remains to be seen.
