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.
