Top Gavin Lux News

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Absent from lineup Wednesday

    Lux isn't starting Wednesday against the Brewers, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Lux has slightly improved at the plate recently, going 3-for-14 with two homers, four RBI, three walks and seven strikeouts over the last four games. However, Hanser Alberto will draw the start at the keystone and bat seventh Wednesday.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Homers again in win

    Lux went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in a 4-0 victory against Milwaukee on Monday.

    Lux's sixth-inning homer to left field put the final insurance runs on the board for Los Angeles. It was his second long ball in three days following a 22-game stretch without going deep. Lux's .296 season batting average is impressive but comes with only six homers. He'll see his fantasy value jump down the stretch if he's able to continue unlocking more power.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Swats solo shot

    Lux went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional RBI and a walk in Saturday's 13-3 win over the Royals.

    Lux knocked in the Dodgers' fourth run of the the first inning with a single to right field, and he followed with a 431-foot solo shot to center in the third. The long ball ended a nearly month-long homer drought for the 24-year-old, though he's otherwise been fine with a .297/.384/.459 slash line since July 15. Lux's lack of power (he has just five homers on the campaign) hurts his fantasy value, but he's still worth rostering in most leagues given his .299 batting average and seven stolen bases on the campaign.

    Lux is out of the lineup for Friday's game at Kansas City, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Notches steal in win

    Lux went 0-for-3 with a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 7-3 win over the Rockies.

    Lux has gone 0-for-7 with two walks in his last three games, a cold spell that followed a stretch of four multi-hit efforts in five contests. The 24-year-old was able to do alright with his one trip aboard Sunday, stealing third base and scoring on a James Outman double in the eighth inning. Lux owns a .299/.376/.425 slash line with four home runs, six steals, 30 RBI and a career-high 50 runs scored through 93 contests.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Riding pine Saturday

    Lux is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rockies.

    With southpaw Kyle Freeland on the hill for the Rockies, Lux will head to the bench in favor of righty-hitting Hanser Alberto. Lux is hitting .338/.429/.563 with two home runs, three triples and four doubles in 23 games this month.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Another three-hit effort

    Lux went 3-for-5 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's 13-0 win over the Rockies.

    Lux has found his swing again, posting multiple hits in four of the last five games. He contributed an RBI single and a run during the Dodgers' five-run fourth inning. The 24-year-old is hitting .307 -- the highest his average has been since April 17 -- with an .817 OPS, four home runs, 29 RBI, 49 runs scored, five stolen bases and 15 doubles through 90 contests. He should continue to see a near-everyday role at second base or in left field, especially considering how well he's done at the plate lately.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Three-hit game

    Lux went 3-for-4 with a double and two RBI in a 7-1 win over the Nationals on Wednesday.

    Lux's three-hit performance against the Nationals punctuated his red-hot July. The 24-year-old second baseman has an OPS of 1.004 this month and is in the midst of a breakout season. His 2.8 Fangraphs WAR is equal to Pete Alonso's and a touch higher than those of Kyle Tucker and Vladimir Guerrero. Lux also has a BABIP of .363, so it is worth watching to see if his numbers regress over the remainder of the season.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Knocks in two runs Sunday

    Lux went 2-for-4 with a run and two RBI in Sunday's 7-4 victory against the Giants.

    Lux notched his first RBI of the contest with a single in the third inning and plated another run with a single in the seventh. The second baseman batted fifth in the order for the first time this season, though that may simply have been a result of Will Smith getting a day off and Justin Turner (abdomen) continuing to be unable to play. Regardless, Lux has hit well this season, as all three marks in his .295/.373/.424 slash line are a career high.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Swats fourth homer

    Lux went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Thursday's 4-0 victory versus the Cardinals.

    Lux provided the final runs of the contest with his two-run shot to right field in the seventh inning. The homer was just the fourth of the season for Lux, who slugged 26 homers between Double-A and Triple-A in 2019. Despite the lack of power, he's enjoying a solid season at the plate, slashing .299/.373/.425 with 44 runs, 22 RBI and five stolen bases over 287 plate appearances. He's also done well to improve his strikeout rate to 17.8 percent while maintaining a 10.9 percent walk rate.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: On base four times

    Lux has gone 10-for-20 (.500) with five walks during his current seven-game hitting streak. He's recorded a home run, two triples, three RBI and three runs scored in that span. The 24-year-old's hot streak has added 18 points to his batting average, which is at .304 for the season. He's posted a .797 OPS, three homers, 20 RBI, 43 runs scored and five stolen bases through 77 contests, and it appears he's in position for an everyday role in the lineup with time at second base and in left field.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Slugs two-run homer

    Lux went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in a 5-3 victory over the Cubs on Thursday.
