    I would have done a straight up Lindor for Lux, but the board wouldn’t let me.

      You can always add cash to the other side to make it work as well. In any case, there were strong rumors that the Indians were insisting on Lux as the return for Lindor last year, and the Dodgers balked at that — for two years of Lindor. So it would seem less likely that they’d offer Lux now for only one year of Lindor.

        Honestly, I’m not sure why the Indians would want Lux at this venture. He clearly needs more time in the minors and is FAR from MLB ready.

        We’ve seen it quite clearly, Lux is over-matched and can’t seem to replicate anything remotely close to his minor-league numbers.

        It’s my suspicion that he was never going to, as his MiLB numbers were so comically unsustainable at the Big League level, there was zero shot of him being the player that scouts labeled him as. Zero.

        He’s a soft-hitting middle infielder who can’t figure out how to get on base and is going to be wasted away being shuffled from MLB to AAA until he’s out of options. I guess if the Indians really want Breyvic Valera for a guy with a lot of value still, I won’t stop them.

        But if you’re an Indians fan, you should celebrate the Indians dodging getting Lux. He’s not what you need, and it’s not hard to see that he’s probably going to be a AAAA middle infielder at this point.

          To be honest, Lux reminds me a lot Jose Peraza without the running ability. A guy who made it look like he was going to be this incredible infield presence for the next decade and a half.

          And for what it’s worth, I think Peraza ends up having a better career than Gavin Lux. I’m willing to put money on that prediction.
