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.
Lux will sit Saturday against the Rockies, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
Lux was given plenty of chances against southpaws early in the season, but his off day against lefty Kyle Freeland on Saturday means he's now sat against five of the last six lefties the Dodgers have faced. His overall .231/.312/.355 slash line on the season doesn't exactly make a strong case for an everyday role. Chris Taylor starts at shortstop in his absence.
Lux went 1-for-4 with a triple, three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 22-1 win over the Diamondbacks.
Lux was held out of the lineup Saturday, but thanks to the Dodgers racing out to an early 9-0 lead, multiple starters were pulled from the contest early. That allowed Lux to receive a relative normal load of at-bats in a bench role, and he was able to match his RBI total from his prior 18 games combined when he tripled with the bases loaded in the eighth inning. The 23-year-old infielder is now slashing .233/.316/.361 across 301 plate appearances on the season.
Lux is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against Arizona, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Lux isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
Lux had started each of the last five games, and he went 6-for-17 with two doubles, three runs, two RBI, a stolen base and two walks. He'll get a breather Wednesday while Chris Taylor starts at shortstop and Albert Pujols enters the lineup at first base.
Lux went 3-for-4 with a double and scored twice in Sunday's 5-1 win over Washington.
The 23-year-old notched his first three-hit performance of the season in the win and collected his second double in as many games. Lux is batting only .237 this season but has started to pick things up, going 6-for-18 (.333) with four runs and two stolen bases over his past six games.
Lux went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, a run, an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Nationals.
Lux came through with a two-out double in the fourth inning to plate the Dodgers' third run. He also walked, stole second base and scored in the ninth. The 23-year-old snapped a five-game stretch without an RBI and notched his first extra-base hit since June 13.
Lux isn't starting Thursday's game against the Nationals, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Lux hasn't been very effective at the plate recently, as he's gone just 2-for-25 with a run, an RBI, a stolen base, six walks and six strikeouts across the last nine games. Chris Taylor will start at shortstop and bat second.

Lux is not starting Tuesday's game against the Padres, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

The infielder has hit .281 with a home run and six RBI in his last nine games. Chris Taylor fills in at shortstop Tuesday while Max Muncy plays second base in his first game off the injured list.
Lux is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers.
With the Dodgers set to face southpaw Kolby Allard, Lux will get the beginning portion of Saturday's tilt off. Chris Taylor will start at shortstop and bat second.
Lux went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, a walk, two runs and four RBI in Friday's 12-1 win over the Rangers.
Lux three-run home run in the first inning capped a six-run rally and he later tacked on an RBI double in the third for his 13th multi-hit game of the season. All six of Lux's homers have come in the past month as his power has drastically improved since April.
Lux went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in Monday's win over the Cardinals.
Lux recorded his first multi-hit game since May 23, and perhaps coincidentally, that was the last time he belted a home run as well. The second baseman has settled in as a regular this season, but his numbers aren't eye-popping by any means -- he's only hitting .247 with a .701 OPS across 168 plate appearances.

Lux capped off a seven-run third inning with a grand slam to right-center to put the Dodgers up 10-0. It was his second grand slam over the last six games. The 23-year-old has turned things around at the plate this month, slashing .324/.375/.500 with three home runs, 16 RBI and 10 runs scored. Lux should continue to be slotted toward the top of the batting order for the foreseeable future while he's on at the plate and with Corey Seager (hand) on the injured list for another few weeks.
Lux went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in a win over Arizona on Tuesday.
Lux broke open a close game with a bases-loaded blast in the bottom of the seventh inning off reliever Kevin Ginkel. The grand slam was the first of his big-league career. Lux has been heating up at the plate of late, going 10-for-25 with two homers and 10 RBI over his past seven games.
Lux will start at shortstop Sunday against the Marlins and will see regular time there while Corey Seager (hand) is sidelined, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The 23-year-old has played shortstop a handful of times through the first six weeks of the season, but he'll now take on the starting role with Seager out for at least the next four weeks with a broken hand. Chris Taylor also figures to see increased time, whether it be at shortstop or second base. Lux has heated up after a slow start to the season with a .784 OPS over his past 11 games.
Lux went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Mariners.
Lux singled and scored in the seventh inning, but his big hit came in the following frame. With two outs in the eighth and Los Angeles down a run, the third-year second baseman took Rafael Montero deep to plate three runs and vault his team toward a come-from-behind win. The blast was among the biggest hits of Lux's young career considering the context and the fact that a struggling Dodgers club was in danger of falling to .500 on the season. It also helped build upon a recent strong stretch at the plate for Lux, who is hitting .323 (10-for-31) with five RBI over his past eight games.
