Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Sits against lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Lux, who has hit just .158 in 57 at-bats against lefties this season, gets the night off as the Dodgers face southpaw Blake Snell. 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.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Sitting versus left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Drives in four Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Socks two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux isn't starting Thursday's game against the Giants, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Lux will get a breather after he went 0-for-3 with a walk Wednesday. Chris Taylor will start at shortstop while Albert Pujols enters the lineup at first base.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Leads way with four RBI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux went 2-for-5 with a grand slam in Sunday's 11-5 win over the Giants.

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.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Launches grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Set to work at shortstop
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Blasts game-winning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux is out of the lineup for Thursday's game in Milwaukee, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

With a lefty (Eric Lauer) on the mound for the Brewers, Lux will sit in favor of Sheldon Neuse, who picks up a start at second base. After being activated from the 10-day injured list Monday, Lux started in all three of the Dodgers' games against Cincinnati to begin the week, going 1-for-12 with six strikeouts.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Knocks in run in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Reds.

Making his return from a stint on the 10-day injured list due to a sore right wrist, the 23-year-old got the Dodgers on the scoreboard in the fourth, when he hit a sharp ground ball that found a hole on the right side and scored Chris Taylor from second. It was encouraging to see Lux make an immediate impact in his first game back from injury after he only managed one hit in his final 17 at-bats before being sidelined.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Activated from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux (wrist) was activated from the 10-day injured list Monday.

Lux started 11 of the Dodgers' first 12 games before getting shut down with a sore right wrist. He struggled at the plate prior to the injury, hitting just .220/.244/.317, but he'll likely be given the chance to reclaim a regular role upon his return. Lux is starting at second base and batting seventh Monday against the Reds.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Nearing return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux (wrist) will take at-bats at the alternate site Friday and is expected to be activated from the injured list Monday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Lux also participated in fielding drills with no trouble, so it appears his recovery is going as expected. He's been out of the lineup since April 15 and was officially placed on the injured list three days later. Upon his return, Lux should return to regular at-bats at second base, which will likely put a squeeze on Zach McKinstry's playing time.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Lands on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dodgers placed Lux (wrist) on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Lux's sore right wrist isn't hampering him in the field, but since he hasn't been able to take full swings since being scratched from the lineup ahead of Thursday's game against the Rockies with the injury, the Dodgers opted to deactivate him in favor of infielder Sheldon Neuse. Manager Dave Roberts said that Zach McKinstry, Chris Taylor and Neuse are all candidates to pick up starts at the keystone while Lux is sidelined.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux (wrist) is not in the lineup Saturday against the Padres, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.

The 23-year-old was scratched from Thursday's lineup with soreness in his right wrist and is out of action for the third straight game. Manager Dave Roberts said Lux progressed to swinging the bat at about 70 percent Saturday, so there's a chance he's available for Sunday's series finale in San Diego.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Still sidelined Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux (wrist) isn't starting Friday's game against the Padres, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Lux was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Rockies due to a sore right wrist. Zach McKinstry will start at second base for Friday's series opener against San Diego, batting seventh.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Dealing with wrist soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux was scratched from Thursday's lineup with right wrist soreness, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

There was originally no reason attached to Lux's removal from the lineup. It's unclear whether the injury will keep him out beyond Thursday's contest, but he'll have a chance to make a quick return to the field Friday as the Dodgers begin a series in San Diego.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Scratched from Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux was scratched from Thursday's lineup against the Rockies, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Lux was in the original lineup, and it's not clear what caused the change. As a result of his absence, Max Muncy shifts to second base with Edwin Rios drawing the start at first base.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Sits for first time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux will sit for the first time this season Monday against Oakland.

The Dodgers indicated that Lux would play a significant role this season, and that was true in the opening series against the Rockies. He started all four games, going 6-for-16 with a steal, three runs and three RBI. He won't start everyday, however, with Chris Taylor getting the start at second base Monday.

Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Swipes bag, scores twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lux went 1-for-4 with a triple, a walk, a stolen base and two runs scored in Saturday's victory over Colorado.

The 23-year-old led off the seventh inning with his second triple in as many games and subsequently crossed the plate on Corey Seager's single. Lux has started each of the Dodgers' first three contests this season, going 5-for-13 with a pair of RBI along with the two triples. He appears locked in as the team's everyday second baseman.
