Lux and May both received promotions to Triple-A Oklahoma City this week.
Lux, 21, is a current shortstop, but could find his home at second base due to well-documented struggles with the accuracy of his throwing arm. Lux has nonetheless showed out with the bat:
Gavin Lux, the Dodgers’ top prospect in my not-an-expert opinion, is 3-for-3 tonight in his first game with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Lux carried an elite .313/.375/.521 slash line at Double-A Tulsa.
May, 21, has yet to make an appearance for Oklahoma City, but carried a 3.74 ERA across 79 1/3 innings at Tulsa, picking up elite marks of a 25.8 K% and a 6.0 BB% along the way.
Lux and May could find their way to Los Angeles within the next 12 months.
