Lux went 3-for-4 with two runs scored Wednesday in Double-A Tulsa's 6-2 win over Frisco. The Dodgers are missing their everyday shortstop in Corey Seager (hamstring), but Chris Taylor makes for an excellent insurance option. Taylor's presence along with a few other quality utility types on the 40-man roster likely minimizes Lux's potential to reach the majors in 2019, but that won't prevent the 21-year-old from solidifying his case as the organization's top position prospect. After his third multi-hit effort in four starts, Lux is slashing .317/.377/.533 with 13 home runs and seven steals across 276 plate appearances in the Texas League.
Lux went 4-for-5 with a home run and two RBI for Double-A Tulsa on Wednesday. Lux is one of the hottest hitters in the minors at the moment, as this was his second straight game with a homer as part of his current nine-game hitting streak. The 2016 first-round pick is hitting .320 in the month of May and sports an excellent .314/.372/.575 slash line with 10 long balls through 37 Double-A games.
Lux is slashing .298/.362/.562 over 121 at-bats for Double-A Tulsa. Lux just continues to rake in Double-A as his .924 OPS is currently higher than the .916 mark he posted in his fantastic campaign in split time between High-A Rancho Cucamonga and Tulsa last season. He's also provided excellent power, having launched eight home runs after hitting 15 last year. While his chances of getting a callup to the Dodgers this season are slim, it seems like a matter of time before the club will give him a run with Triple-A Oklahoma City.
Lux went 4-for-4 with a home run, a triple a walk and three RBI on Sunday in Double-A Tulsa's 10-1 win over Springfield. Lux closed out the 2018 season at Tulsa in impressive fashion and is off to a hot start in his return to the Texas League. The 21-year-old should get the call to Triple-A Oklahoma City at some point this summer, but the Dodgers would probably prefer to delay his service clock and push back a big-league promotion until 2020. Unless the Dodgers lose multiple key middle infielders to long-term injuries, the trio of Corey Seager, Enrique Hernandez and Chris Taylor should be enough to keep Lux on the farm this season.
Lux was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Lux is listed as the Dodgers' No. 1 prospect and made it to Double-A Tulsa in 2018, where he slashed .324/.408/.495 with four homers and nine RBI over 28 games. He figures to remain with the Drillers for the better half of the 2019 campaign.
