Dodgers infielder Gavin Lux is back in action at summer camp,’s Ken Gurnick was among those to report. He’ll jump right into an intrasquad game Friday evening.

Lux’s status was never clear, though his absence obviously spoke to the fact that he might not be ready for the start of the season. We still don’t know why he was away. If the time away was related to the coronavirus, then Lux must have tested negative twice in order to be admitted.

This is good news for Lux’s health and the Dodgers’ competitive position. The 22-year-old held his own in the majors last year after dominating upper minors pitching. He’s expected to play a key role in the team’s middle infield mix in 2020.
