Gavin Lux
21-Year-Old ShortstopSS
Los Angeles Dodgers AA
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Lux cut his groundball rate from 52.7% at Low-A to 41.7% across stops at High-A and Double-A, and in the process emerged as a potential five-category middle infielder. Save for an eight-game run in the Pioneer League in 2016, his walk rates have always been north of 10% with strikeout rates below 20%, so the plate skills have always been there, and his 2018 swing change unlocked a potentially plus hit tool with at least average power. He is a good athlete with above-average speed, and while he attempted 15 fewer steals last year (22) than he did in 2017 (37), Lux should still be able to swipe double-digit bases annually early on in his big-league career. His defense at shortstop is lacking, and his arm isn’t accurate enough for third base, so a move to the keystone seems likely in the coming years. If Lux's revamped swing continues to produce results in the upper levels, he would project to take over as the Dodgers' everyday second baseman in 2020. Read Past Outlooks

Lighting up Double-A
SSLos Angeles Dodgers  AA
May 16, 2019
Lux is slashing .298/.362/.562 over 121 at-bats for Double-A Tulsa.
ANALYSIS
Lux just continues to rake in Double-A as his .924 OPS is currently higher than the .916 mark he posted in his fantastic campaign in split time between High-A Rancho Cucamonga and Tulsa last season. He's also provided excellent power, having launched eight home runs after hitting 15 last year. While his chances of getting a callup to the Dodgers this season are slim, it seems like a matter of time before the club will give him a run with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
The Dodgers made Lux their first selection of the 2016 Draft, selecting him out of Indian Trail High School in Wisconsin, a state not typically known for producing MLB talent. He is also one of just three position players taken by the Dodgers in the first round since 2004. Initially committed to play for Arizona State, the left-handed hitting shortstop decided to sign with the Dodgers for $2.3 million and displayed his talents well enough in rookie ball, hitting .296/.375/.399 between the Arizona and Pioneer leagues. The Dodgers are obviously well set at shortstop for the future with Corey Seager, but the 19-year-old Lux is far enough away from the majors that Seager really shouldn't be the biggest concern for his prospective dynasty league owners. Lux will likely begin 2017 at Low-A Great Lakes and work his way up from there, with High-A Rancho Cucamonga a possibility if his bat looks advanced enough. The key to his future fantasy value will be the development of at least fringe average power to go with what appears to be a strong hit tool.
