Lux isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Tampa Bay.
Lux will head to the bench with a lefty in Blake Snell slated to toe the rubber for the opposition. Max Muncy moves over to the keystone and will bat fifth.
Lux went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and two runs scored Friday night against the Mets.
Lux delivered a three-run blast in the fourth inning, putting his team ahead in the early going. The 21-year-old shortstop is now 9-for-33 with two homers, five RBI and a stolen base over his first 10 big-league contests.
Lux is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Orioles.
He was supposed to sit Tuesday but was a late add after Justin Turner (ankle) was scratched. After getting added to the starting nine he proceeded to go 3-for-4 with his first big-league home run, and is now hitting .250/.333/.458 in his first 24 at-bats. Enrique Hernandez starts at the keystone with lefty John Means on the hill for Baltimore.
Lux went 3-for-4 with a double and solo home run Tuesday against the Orioles.
Lux had a strong day at the plate after having gone hitless in each of his last four appearances. The big shot came in the fifth inning, when he launched a home run to center field for his first career long ball. Currently slotted atop the depth chart at second base, Lux should continue to get regular at-bats as he adjusts to his first taste of big-league pitching. Through just seven games, he's managed a .250/.333/.458 line while working three free passes against five strikeouts.
Lux was added to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Orioles.
Lux was originally supposed to sit with lefty Ty Blach on the mound for Baltimore. Justin Turner (ankle) getting scratched triggered a series of changes, however. Chris Taylor moves in from right field to third base, with Enrique Hernandez moving from second base to right field. Lux will enter the lineup as the second baseman, batting ninth.
Lux is not starting Tuesday against Baltimore.
Lux started six straight games after earning his first big-league callup last week. He hit just 3-for-20 in those games, though it goes without saying the sample size is far too small to jump to any conclusions about his future. All six of his starts came against righties, but he'll sit against lefty Ty Blach on Tuesday. Enrique Hernandez starts at second base in his absence.
Lux was named the Minor League Player of the Year by Baseball America on Monday.
The prestigious award is the crowning achievement of a spectacular season in which Lux slashed .347/.421/.607 with 26 home runs, 76 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 113 games between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City. His overall brilliance also earned Lux a September callup to the Dodgers, though he is hitting only .150 in 20 at-bats in the majors.
Lux will start at second base and bat leadoff Tuesday against the Rockies.
The 21-year-old had a pair of hits -- including a double on his first career barrel -- and three runs scored out of the eight hole in his debut Monday. He will be tested Tuesday with an assignment atop the order as Joc Pederson sits with an abdominal bruise. Manager Dave Roberts told Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com that Lux will start almost every game at second base against right-handers this month. Lux should be owned in virtually all fantasy leagues.
Lux went 2-for-5 with a double and three runs scored in his big-league debut Monday against the Rockies.
Lux, who is the Dodgers' top prospect and a top-three prospect in the game, shined in his big-league debut. He laced a first-pitch single to center field in the second inning and then banged a double to the right-center wall later in the game. Lux did not walk or strike out. The Dodgers did the right thing by adding him to the 40-man roster for the final month. Now that he is up, he should play close to every day down the stretch.
Lux was officially promoted to the Dodgers on Sunday.
Lux is MLB.com's ninth-ranked overall prospect and will be called up to the big leagues ahead of a six-game homestand for the Dodgers. Lux has made 18 starts at second base this season while playing with Triple-A Oklahoma City, and that is exactly where he will find himself Monday as he will pick up his first start against the Rockies at home.
The Dodgers intend to call up Lux from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Monday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.
While Lux wasn't included among the Dodgers' initial wave of September callups Sunday, the organization's top prospect is believed to be en route to Los Angeles after he was withheld from the lineup at Oklahoma City. Though the Dodgers likely didn't come into the season expecting Lux to contribute for the big club at any point, the 21-year-old earned his spot in the majors after slashing .392/.478/.719 with 13 home runs in 49 games at Triple-A following his late-June promotion from Double-A Tulsa. Expect Lux to receive most of his initial action at second base while Max Muncy (wrist) is on the shelf.
Manager Dave Roberts said the Dodgers have yet to decide whether or not to promote Lux in September, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Lux will likely join the team regardless, but if he isn't actually called up he would work in an apprentice-type role to gain experience while not being eligible to play in games. The 21-year-old has done everything he can to prove he's ready in 48 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City, slashing .390/.478/.723 with 13 home runs since his promotion in late June. According to Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times, whatever the Dodgers decide, Lux won't join the team when rosters expand Sunday, but he could arrive during the week once Oklahoma City's season officially comes to an end.
Lux could be added to the Dodgers' active roster in September, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
Previous reports indicated that the organization was considering bringing up Lux in a "ride-along" role in which he would participate in team activities but not be eligible to play in games. That stance may be changing, however, with the 21-year-old continuing to rake at the Triple-A level, posting a .407/.493/.747 slash line with 12 homers and 38 RBI in 44 games with Oklahoma City. Although the recent returns of Chris Taylor and Kike Hernandez from the injured list would seem to make even fewer at-bats available for Lux, the positional flexibility of both major-league veterans -- and the Dodgers' massive lead in their division -- could allow the team to work their top prospect into the lineup down the stretch.
Lux went 0-for-4 against Triple-A Round Rock on Friday, ending a streak of 50 consecutive games in which he reached base.
Prior to Friday, the last game in which Lux did not reach base took place on June 8 while he was still playing Double-A ball. During the impressive streak, Lux hit .417 with 13 homers and 41 RBI between 37 games with Oklahoma City and 13 with Tulsa. The Dodgers' No. 1 prospect is expected to spend time with the big club when rosters expand in September, though he may not be added to the active roster.
Lux is likely to join the Dodgers in September but may not be added to the active roster, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Manager Dave Roberts recently acknowledged that Lux has earned an opportunity to join the team when rosters expand in September, in some capacity. That could mean that Lux joins the team in a "ride-along" scenario; traveling and taking part in team activities but not as a member of the active roster (and not playing in games). Los Angeles took a similar approach with Will Smith -- who is now the team's starting catcher -- at the end of last season. Lux is slashing .356/.427/.627 with 24 home runs across two minor-league stops this year and appears to be a big part of the Dodgers' future plans.
Lux went 2-for-5 for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday and has now collected eight hits in his last 14 at-bats.
The hit parade continues for Lux, who has shown no signs of slowing down in August after earning the PCL Player of the Month award by hitting .435 in July. The Dodgers' top-ranked prospect is now slashing an absurd .362/.431/.633 with 23 homers and 68 RBI in 450 plate appearances between Double-A and Triple-A this season. The Dodgers have resisted the temptation to call him up to the big club thus far, but he's likely to get his first taste of the majors in September, if not sooner.
Lux will not be promoted in a corresponding move to Enrique Hernandez (hand) landing on the injured list, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Hernandez won't be placed on the IL until Sunday or Monday, but manager Dave Roberts got out in front of things and nixed the idea of Lux getting the call. The Dodgers' top prospect is hitting .479 with eight home runs and a 17:15 K:BB in 22 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City. He clearly seems ready for more of a challenge, but teams often opt not to start the clock on top prospects at this point in the calendar.
Lux was promoted from Double-A Tulsa to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.
Lux will get his first taste of Triple-A after slashing an impressive .313/.375/.521 with 13 home runs and seven stolen bases in 64 games for Tulsa. The well-regarded prospect is one step closer to the majors following Wednesday's promotion, though seeing as he's still not on the 40-man roster, he could spend the remainder of the season at Oklahoma City unless he really forces the Dodgers' hand.
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 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and three RBI for Double-A Tulsa on Wednesday.
Lux led off the game with a long ball before adding a two-run shot in the fifth inning to give him 13 homers on the season. He's been mashing all season for the Drillers, as this performance gives him a .305/.359/.538 slash line through 223 at-bats. He doesn't have much left to prove in Double-A, so a move to Triple-A Oklahoma City could be in the cards for the 21-year-old infielder at some point this summer.
