Dodgers Prospects: Gavin Lux and Dustin May Climb in Midseason Rankings

Dodgers prospects Gavin Lux and Dustin May have both made big moves up the prospect leaderboards with Baseball Prospectus.

Futures Game

According to the article, shortstop Gavin Lux checks in at #7 on the list and right-handed starting pitcher Dustin May checks in at #11.

Both took part in All-Star Weekends’ Futures Game on Sunday with Gavin Lux getting two at-bats against Blue Jays’ prospect Nate Pearson. He struck out on a fastball that clocked in at 101 miles per hour.

Dustin May fared well pitching the third inning of the game, putting together a 1-2-3 inning requiring only 8 pitches.

Picking Up Steam

Both prospects are now at Triple-A Oklahoma City and could factor into the picture for the big league club later this year.

May has made one start for the OKC Dodgers. He tossed 5 innings, allowing 2 earned runs.

Lux, on the other hand, has had more time to get his feet wet — posting an absurd 239 wRC+ in 7 games. He is batting .500 (15-for-30) and has hit one home run and scored 12 runs.

We have come to expect these types of accolades for the pair, as they continue to impress league-wide.
