Dodgers’ top prospect Gavin Lux has been named the PCL Player of the Month for his amazing July performance that has been well-documented over the past few weeks.

Lux is ranked as the Dodgers’ second-best prospect and the tenth-best prospect in baseball, according to Fangraphs’ Kiley McDaniel and Eric Longenhagen.
The 21-year-old middle infielder has enjoyed an absurd .435/.519/.837 slash line at Triple-A Oklahoma City while crushing 27 extra-base hits (9 home runs) across 30 games. He paces the PCL amongst players who have played 30 or more games there with a 229 wRC+.
Lux is in store for a call-up in September at the latest. He could very well step in as the everyday second baseman in the playoffs or in some sort of platoon/bench role when the time comes. He has nothing left to prove down in the minor leagues.
Regardless of if you think the balls are ‘juiced’ in the PCL or not, the numbers are still pretty fascinating for the top prospect. He figures to one day be the Dodgers’ starting second baseman and it could be as early as October.
