Player Outlook
Gavin Lux was an offensive monster in the the Dodger farm system, but that success did not translate to the big league level over two seasons while his third was washed out by a gruesome knee injury in spring training. A look back at his 2022 rankings show an 89th percentile sprint speed which is almost certain to take a hit coming off his major leg injury leaving only his plate discipline as his major plus skill. To date as a major leaguer, Lux has done most of his damage off fastballs while struggling to handle pitches with wrinkles and changes of speed so it will be interesting to see how the year layoff from live action changes anything. On another team, Lux's plate discipline could earn him a higher spot in the lineup, but the top four of the Dodger lineup is set in stone so expect Lux to live in the bottom third of the lineup unless the third year breakout he missed due to injury last year surfaces early this season.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Idle against right-handed pitcher

    Lux is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Twins, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. The lefty-hitting Lux will exit the starting nine for the fifth time this season, though Wednesday marks the first occasion that he's on the bench against a right-handed starting pitcher (Chris Paddack). Mookie Betts will shift over from shortstop to fill in at second base for Lux, who is slashing .179/.238/.205 through 42 plate appearances on the season after missing the entire 2023 season while recovering from a torn ACL and LCL in his right knee.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Back in lineup Wednesday

    Lux (illness) will start at second base and bat eighth in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Mariners, Kirsten Watson of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports. Lux was away from camp Tuesday while he battled an illness, but he presumably made a full recovery from the ailment overnight. He'll return to the lineup at the keystone, the position he's expected to occupy this season after defensive concerns prompted the Dodgers to move him off of shortstop earlier in spring training.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Out due to illness

    Lux is away from the Dodgers' camp Tuesday due to illness, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. A bug seems to be making its way around the clubhouse, as Max Muncy and assistant pitching coach Connor McGuiness have also been affected. Consider Lux day-to-day.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Shifting to second base

    Manager Dave Roberts said Lux will primarily play second base with Mookie Betts handling shortstop, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. That's the alignment for Friday's spring game against the Reds, and Roberts described the positioning as "permanent, for now." Lux experienced some troubles throwing the ball from shortstop during spring action, and the Dodgers decided they had seen enough. The 26-year-old should still see plenty of playing time at the keystone, though he may sit against some left-handed pitchers.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Starting role in question

    Manager Dave Roberts wouldn't commit to naming Lux the Dodgers' Opening Day shortstop Thursday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. The Dodgers entered camp fully expecting Lux to start at shortstop on Opening Day. However, recent throwing issues have raised concerns about whether or not Lux is the best option to have in the field. It's possible Lux is simply rusty from missing the entire 2023 campaign due to a torn ACL, and Roberts stated the team is still confident in Lux's defensive abilities, but if Lux continues to struggle, his starting job may be given to Miguel Rojas instead.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Ditches knee brace

    Lux has been cleared to ditch the heavy knee brace he had been wearing on his surgically repaired right knee, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. He is still wearing a compression sleeve, however. Lux missed the entire 2023 season following surgery to repair the ACL and LCL in his knee, but he's full-go this spring and is slated to open the season as the Dodgers' starting shortstop.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Ready for spring

    Lux (knee) is a "full go" for spring training, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports. Lux missed all of last season after tearing the ACL and spraining the MCL in his right knee during a spring training game last year. Despite his extended absence, Lux is on track to begin the new campaign as the Dodgers' primary shortstop, per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. The 26-year-old infielder slashed .276/.346/.399 with 42 RBI across 471 plate appearances in 2022.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Agrees to terms

    Lux (knee) agreed to a one-year, $1.225 million deal with the Dodgers on Thursday, avoiding arbitration, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports. He missed the entire 2023 season after undergoing knee surgery in spring training, but Lux has a chance to be the Dodgers' starting shortstop, at least against righties. It's also possible the team could still acquire an external upgrade, but as things stand, he could platoon with Miguel Rojas. Lux slashed .276/.346/.399 with six home runs and seven steals in 129 games in 2022.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: On track to be primary shortstop

    Dodgers general manager Brandon Gomes said Wednesday that Lux (knee) appears on track to be the team's primary shortstop in 2024, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Lux was expected to take over the position in 2023 before he blew out both the ACL and LCL in his right knee during an early spring training game. The 25-year-old began a running program in late July and continues to make steady progress within the recovery process, per Gomes. He should be back to full health when camp opens in February.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Making progress in recovery

    Lux (knee) said Saturday that he'll be able to start running on the field at the end of next week and that he could start hitting off a tee in early August, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Lux is recovering from a torn ACL and LCL suffered early in spring training. He began running on a treadmill in late June and is now nearing on-field running. Though this is a sign that he's making good progress, Lux is not expected to return this season. However, there's a strong chance that he'll be fully recovered by spring training next year.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Begins running on treadmill

    Lux (knee) posted a video Tuesday on his personal Instagram account featuring him running on a treadmill. Lux's video confirms that he's begun a running program about three and a half months after he underwent surgery to repair ACL and LCL tears in his right knee. The Dodgers still don't appear to be counting on Lux returning from the 60-day injured list at any point this season, but if he steers clear of any setbacks while ramping up the intensity of his running over the next several months, he could enter spring training with a clean bill of health.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Sheds crutches

    Lux (knee) is no longer using crutches and could start running in July, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. Lux tore the ACL and LCL in his right knee during a spring training contest in late February and was placed on the 60-day IL on March 30. Though the news that he could be cleared to begin running in July is a positive sign of progress, there's been no indication that the Dodgers expect Lux to return this season.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Placed on 60-day IL

    Lux (knee) was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday. Lux will miss the entire 2023 season after requiring surgery in early March to repair significant damage to both the ACL and LCL in his right knee.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Also suffered sprained LCL

    Lux also suffered a sprained LCL on top of his torn ACL, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports. There was some belief that Lux had torn his LCL, but imaging revealed just a sprain. Unfortunately, the torn ACL suffered by the 25-year-old will keep Lux out for all of the 2023 season, as he will undergo surgery performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache on March 7 in Los Angeles. Miguel Rojas and Chris Taylor are expected to get the majority of the reps at shortstop with Lux out.
