The Los Angeles Dodgers are considering calling the best prospect, Gavin Lux. Dodgers has more than enough firepower to win their first World Series since 1988, and they have even more talent waiting in the minor leagues. Although they have the best record in baseball with one month remaining in the regular season, we can still see one of their best prospects in action in September.
The Dodgers consider raising the lead prospect, Gavin Lux, to MLB when the charts expand in September, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. Lux, a box player, is the number 10 prospect in baseball, and has been hitting like crazy in Triple-A with a .407 batting average with 12 homers and an OPS of 1,240 in 182 courses. appearances. The Dodgers probably don't want to call the 21-year-old if he isn't going to play, and there has been some concern about whether there would be enough at-bats for Lux, Chris Taylor and Kiké Hernandez.
A team official told Rosenthal that the Dodgers could find ways to get enough at-bats for all their players, even with Lux on the active list. Lux is primarily a shortstop, but can also play second base.
The September calls are considered an important time for prospects to familiarize themselves with life at the Major League level, and Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said receiver Will Smith's time with the team at the end of the Last season he helped him become a great contributor this year. The team could adopt the same approach with Lux.
The Dodgers made no major move on the exchange deadline this year, and part of the reason was that they didn't want to separate from Lux or one of their other major prospects. Lux could see a regular game time since 2020, when Rosenthal says the Dodgers will explore the option of moving Max Muncy to first base.
