Everybody across the baseball world, together with followers, gamers, coaches and members of the media really feel sorry for Lux, and it is laborious to not really feel sorry for him after this incident.
Let’s hope he recovers nicely and is prepared for 2024.
The Dodgers have Chris Taylor, who they might plug in at shortstop.
Miguel Rojas can also be an possibility.
We may see the Dodgers probably diving again into the commerce or free agent markets.
Utilityman Jose Iglesias is unsigned, and former All-Star Paul DeJong may probably be commerce bait for the St. Louis Cardinals resolve they don’t seem to be an excellent match for him.
