The Dodgers are quietly in the midst of a youth movement with the team transitioning from being anchored by veterans Clayton Kershaw, Kenley Jansen, and Justin Turner to a new youthful core of Cody Bellinger, Walker Buehler, and more.
Gavin Lux is amongst the group of talented 2019 rookies like Will Smith, Tony Gonsolin, Dustin May, and Alex Verdugo who look to pick up where the veterans will leave off. They are the ones who will look to continue the successes of the 2010s Dodgers into the 2020s.
The second baseman of the future for the Dodgers, Gavin Lux, talked about what it is like to have Cody Bellinger as a teammate as they create camaraderie for the future:

Lux on Bellinger’s Ability
Cody Bellinger is a good role model for Gavin Lux going forward and it seems Lux already looks up to Bellinger simply based off of his talent alone.
“It is so much fun. On both sides of the ball..he’ll save a run by hosing a guy at third or making a diving play. Next inning comes around he hits a 450 foot home run.”
Lux on Bellinger Winning MVP
Gavin Lux gave his teammate his vote for the NL Most Valuable Player Award and gave him even more credit:
“There’s nothing on the field that he can’t do. He can do everything on the baseball field and he’s a great dude and great teammate and I was so happy that he won the MVP. He definitely deserved it.”
Get used to seeing Lux and Bellinger in the same breath as the two remain poised to spearhead the Dodgers’ future and present.
