Dodgers: Gavin Lux, Jeter Downs Ranked Among Top-10 Shortstop Prospects (Dodgers Nation)



The Dodgers have a good one in Gavin Lux. He is a terrific hitter, he can run a bit, and he can truly do it all. He has yet to show that at the major league level, but he seems like as safe of a bet as you can make to return some solid production over the course of his major league career.

His 2019 minor league season was one of the best in the league in recent memory and he showed the baseball world why scouts have loved him since he was drafted.

In a recent column by MLB.com that ranks the top shortstop prospects in Major League Baseball, prospect expert Jim Callis ranks Gavin Lux as the second-best shortstop prospect in the game while ranking Jeter Downs eighth.
