Gavin Lux Scouting Report — SS, Los Angeles Dodgers

Prospect: Gavin Lux
Position: Shortstop
Organization: Los Angeles Dodgers

April 24-26 — Undersized, lean; skeptical of list height and weight. Strong defender; covers ground well into the hole, easy first step and lateral movement in both directions, more than enough arm strength to get the job done. Picks his spots with arm strength; won’t show off cannon if he doesn’t have to, but it’s there when he goes deep in the hole and needs to let loose; couple minor accuracy issues in my look that bear watching. Impressive fielder with some understanding of the position; made a couple great pick and throw plays deep in the hole; also went nicely into shallow center field two times to track pop-ups and make running catches. Good spatial awareness in traffic. Impressive vertical, solid defender; size & throwing accuracy will remain an issue and second base may inevitably be a better fit with the Los Angeles Dodgers, but he could overachieve and stick at shortstop for a while … Timed 4.11 up the line from the LHH box, 4.51 on the turn at first base, and 7.99 to second base (standing double) in my April look … Natural feel for hitting the ball the other way on a line, but still has more than enough bat speed to turn on pitches when he needs to. Not a ton of raw power; decent line drive profile with some ability to use all fields; long battle in a couple different at-bats in my look, and very, very patient in drawing walks a few times, as well. Far from an overly aggressive hitter; will work counts … Intense, competitive kid. High-energy and will battle. Gavin Lux made a pretty solid first impression on me; need to see him more defensively, and I’m skeptical of his list size and positional future, but immediately easy to imagine him as a productive everyday second baseman at ceiling just based on first looks.
