Dodgers SS Lux expected out for season after knee injury

Gavin Lux hasn’t seen the video of the injury that ended his chance to be the Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting shortstop this season and has no plans to watch it.

Lux will miss the season with torn ligaments in his right knee after injuring himself while running for the bases in a spring training game. The 25-year-old came to camp as the top candidate to replace the late Trea Turner as Dodgers shortstop.

“It’s one of the hardest parts,” Lux said Tuesday, while fighting back tears and leaning on crutches inside the team’s facility in Glendale, Arizona. “I think every baseball player’s dream is to play shortstop for the Los Angeles Dodgers.”

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts called the injury a blow and said his heart goes out to the young infielder.

Lux was injured on Monday while running between second and third base against San Diego after a dirt ball was hit. Shortly after ducking to avoid a throw, he took a few steps before his right knee buckled, he stumbled forward and fell to the ground. He said he felt something pop and his leg went numb.

“I tried to get out of the way of the throw, and I think my cleat kind of got stuck in the ground and straightened up a little funky, and tilted, and yeah, I got myself kind of wrapped around my ankle, too. Weirdly enough, I don’t even think it’s really preventable,” Lux said. “In hindsight, I probably should have taken the jet to the nose and carried it.”
