The Los Angeles Dodgers selected shortstop Gavin Lux of Indian Trail Academy (Kenosha, Wisconsin) with the No. 20 pick in Thursday night's MLB first-year player draft.

Scouting report: Lux has picturesque infield footwork and actions befitting a major league shortstop. He takes aggressive but efficient routes to ground balls and has a lightning quick glove-to-hand transfer. He sets his feet quickly to throw from a platform, which will allow him to make accurate throws. The arm strength isn't no-doubt, left-side-of-the-infield arm strength and is closer to average, but we think more is coming and it should be enough for short once the cement is dry on the body.
