MLB.com’s William Boor reports that the Dodgers are promoting infield prospect Gavin Lux to the majors. Ron Cervenka of ThinkBlue LA was the first to break the news.

Max Muncy is expected to miss two weeks with a fractured right wrist, so Lux could see regular playing time at second base, or at least share the position with Kiké Hernández. The 21-year-old hit a combined .347/.421/.607 with 26 home runs, 76 RBI, and 99 runs scored in 523 plate appearances between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Lux is the Dodgers’ No. 1 prospect and No. 9 across baseball, according to MLB Pipeline. He went 20th overall to the Dodgers in the 2016 draft.
