The Los Angeles Dodgers may have a potential star in the making. Lighting it up for the Triple-A affiliate Oklahoma City Dodgers is shortstop prospect Gavin Lux.
Lux has been on an absolute tear, compiling a five-game home run streak that includes six moonshots. He now has seven total home runs with Oklahoma City and it looks like he'll continue to add to that.
Lux's 2019 has been split between Oklahoma City and the Double-A Tulsa Drillers, but he could find himself on the MLB roster later in the year if he keeps killing it.

His minor-league performance has boosted him to become the top prospect in the Dodgers' system. With the potential that Lux has at the plate, the Dodgers could use the slugging depth to further plead their case as the best team in the MLB.
