Dodgers News: Gavin Lux Injured by Pitching Machine

The weekend series against the Cincinnati Reds is here, and it seems that Dodgers infielder Gavin Lux has had a lot of attention after being scratched from the lineup a few minutes before first pitch on Friday. It turns that he sustained a right forearm injury the hard way.

Well, it turns out Lux had a mishap with a pitching machine and will not be starting this weekend.

Dave Roberts went into detail after Friday nights game and explained what is next for Lux:

I don’t know how it happened, it was a pitching machine, ball kind of got away, I guess, and got him pretty good in the forearm. X-rays, we took during the game, negative, which is certainly a positive. I’ll have him down again tomorrow and Sunday. The hope is he will be available off the bench in some capacity tomorrow and Sunday as well.

Good news from Doc after the game with confirmation that it is just a forearm contusion. However, Lux will not start this weekend, but the goal is to keep him close just in case the Dodgers need him.

With the Dodgers loss tonight, keeping Lux healthy is definitely a plus. Lux has been a big part of this team, especially with the Dodgers roster getting hit hard with injuries.

On the bright side, there is no serious damage to Lux, and he should be back in the lineup in no time.

NEXT: Gavin Lux Has Been the ‘Boost’ the Lineup Has Needed


  1. “Lux has been a big part of this team”??? You mean by being a .235 batter? And I thought there was a lot of talk about trading him after he was sent down to AAA earlier this year.

    1. He’s been an asset to the team since his return.
      Then there’s Bellinger batting .god awful

  2. .235? That’s a vast improvement over the 3 sub .200 hitters that Roberts started against the Cardinals. That does not include the pitcher !!!!!!!!!!

  3. Lux has shown some discipline at the plate since his return. What is needed from him is consistency. Although he would be a good trade chip during the off season, the team needs to wait to see if they will have Seager and Taylor next year. Trea Turner may be moving to shortstop and Lux would best choice at second if he was able to show some consistency and durability.

  4. What’s the deal? Everybody hits our batters. Now the pitching machines are hitting our batters too. We are the Rodney Dangerfield’s of baseball. We get no respect. Have Graterol throw a 100 mph fastball at that pitching machine.
