  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Undergoes knee surgery

    Lux underwent surgery Wednesday to repair the torn ACL and LCL in his right knee, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Lux suffered both injuries when he took an awkward step while running the bases in a Cactus League game on Feb. 27. He'll spend the entire 2023 season in recovery mode, spoiling what many thought might be a breakout campaign for the 25-year-old. Miguel Rojas is expected to open as the primary shortstop for the Dodgers, with Chris Taylor also getting some reps there.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Lengthy absence expected

    Lux's right knee injury is "bad," a source told Buster Olney of ESPN. The injury is expected to keep the infielder sidelined for a long time.

    The Dodgers have yet to reveal the results of the MRI performed on Lux's knee, but it doesn't sound like the news will be good. Lux injured his knee during Cactus League play Monday on a slide into third base and had to be carted off the field. We should find out more about the 25-year-old later Tuesday. Miguel Rojas figures to take over at shortstop while Lux is on the shelf.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Also suffered sprained LCL

    Lux also suffered a sprained LCL on top of his torn ACL, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    There was some belief that Lux had torn his LCL, but imaging revealed just a sprain. Unfortunately, the torn ACL suffered by the 25-year-old will keep Lux out for all of the 2023 season, as he will undergo surgery performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache on March 7 in Los Angeles. Miguel Rojas and Chris Taylor are expected to get the majority of the reps at shortstop with Lux out.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Out for season with ACL tear

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts revealed Tuesday that Lux has been diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee and is likely out for the season, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The 25-year-old was set to take over as the Dodgers' everyday shortstop in 2023, but he won't get the opportunity to play a single regular-season game after his leg gave out as he was running the bases in a Cactus League game Monday against the Padres. He also has some damage to his right LCL and will require a full surgical repair, which is already scheduled for March 7 in Los Angeles, per Harris. Miguel Rojas, acquired from the Marlins in January, currently looks like the best bet to fill the vacancy at shortstop for the reigning NL West champs. Utility man Chris Taylor could also see some action at the position.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Undergoing MRI on right knee

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters that Lux is currently undergoing an MRI on his right knee, Juan Toribio of reports.

    Roberts also confirmed that the injury was to his knee, and not to his ankle or another part of his lower body. The injury occurred on Monday in the sixth inning against the Padres while he was sliding into third base, and he was unable to place any weight on his leg before being carted off the field. Roberts also mentioned that the infielder "heard something pop," before the exit. It seems very likely that Lux is going to miss time, but there likely won't be an update on Lux until after the results of the imaging are checked by the club.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Hurts knee, assisted off field

    Lux suffered an apparent right knee or lower leg injury in the sixth inning of Monday's Cactus League game against the Padres and was carted off the field, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Lux wasn't able to put any weight on his foot and required assistance just to get on the cart after he sustained the injury while trying to avoid a throw across the diamond as he slid into third base. The Dodgers will likely provide an update on Lux's condition later Monday, and a clearer diagnosis of the injury should be available in the next day or two once he receives X-rays and/or an MRI. Given how the injury looked, Lux could be in danger of missing time to begin the season.

  • Dodgers' Gavin Lux: Hits bench against lefty

    Lux will sit for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Padres on Friday.

    The Dodgers are going with a righty-heavy lineup against southpaw Blake Snell. Max Muncy will handle second base in Lux's absence, with Austin Barnes entering in the lineup in his place, pushing Will Smith to designated hitter and Justin Turner out to Muncy's former spot at the hot corner.
