Gavin Lux was selected by the Los Angeles Dodgers with the 20th pick in the 2016 MLB June Amateur Draft from Indian Trail HS (Kenosha, WI).
- Name: Gavin Thomas Lux
- Date of birth: Nov 23, 1997, in Kenosha, Wis.
- High School: Indian Trail HS, Kenosha, Wis.
- Draft: Drafted in the 1st round (20th overall) by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2016
- Ht.: 6’2″ / Wt.: 190 lbs
- Bats: L / Throws: R
He was a top draft pick after being named the 2016 Wisconsin baseball Gatorade Player of the Year (hitting a mind-blowing .560 average in his senior season).
Scouting: Above average hitting, speed, and power.
“With his plus speed and savvy, Lux can steal bases and has the upside of a 25-25 player. He has the raw tools to play shortstop, including quickness, soft hands, and solid arm strength, and he has gotten smoother at the position since turning pro. But he also has had issues with throwing accuracy, leading to 61 errors in 208 games at short in his first three seasons, so many scouts think he’ll wind up at second base.” – Who is Gavin Lux?
