Dodgers Injury News: GM Shares Update on Gavin Lux

With the MLB offseason starting, the Dodgers will be looking at upgrading the roster from all angles. But it seems that they also will be getting some key members back from injury for next season.

This includes infielder Gavin Lux, who tore his ACL and sprained his LCL in Spring Training this past year. It was a massive blow to the team when Lux went down, and it then forced veteran Miguel Rojas to take over the shortstop position.

At the GM meetings, Dodgers General Manager Brandon Gomes provided an update on Lux. He said that Lux won’t need to participate in winter ball, despite an interest from the infielder.

In 129 games in 2022, Lux hit .276 with six home runs and 42 runs batted in. After LA lost some key free agents, he was in line to take over a starting role, but the injury derailed everything.

The hope is that Lux will be able to return fully to start the 2024 season and that he can finally take over the starting shortstop position. This is assuming of course that LA doesn’t upgrade at the position in free agency or via trade this winter.

LA will be looking all across the board, but with Lux coming back, they likely will want to see how he performs. Lux has been a big part of the Dodgers plans in the past, and it seems that that remains true to this day.

The team was high on him before his injury, and they were excited to see what he could do over the course of a full season. Hopefully, he gets that chance this coming year and he can remain healthy.

  1. Lux played SS in high school and most of the minors. He has decent range and arm. Dodgers also have Taylor and Rojas under contract and May sign Kike. They must decide what to do wit DeLuca, Busch and Vargas are they on the opening day roster or traded? I think they plan to spend huge money on Ohtani and possibly Snell or Nola. Although if they sign two guys with club option they would lose all of their top draft choices and the Dodgers hate doing that. I think if they sign Ohtani they go hard after Yamamoto or Imanaga and possibly Giolito.
    They have Buehler, Miller and Pepiot with Sheehan, Knack, Hurt, Grove and others competing for a spot. So they hav great young arms in the minors with a bunch more in a couple of years

    1. Great thought, I’d add Chris Taylor and Austin Barnes to the trading block as they can use the cash to bring in these badly needed players.

  2. Lux will do well at SS as long as he’s fully over his knee injury and Gomes did report that Lux is progressing well. Lux also does have some sock and we may see a bit more this year. Although it was in the minors, he showed good power while there.

  3. Minor League Player of the Year. Seemed to be progressing well in 2022. Can hit in the no. 9 spot in the line up behind Outman. Betts, Freeman, Ohtani, Smith, Muncy,RF Heyward/Taylor, LF (Vargas/Busch) Outman, Lux. Then Soto in LF 2025 to hit 4th.
