Dodgers Fans React to Gavin Lux Being Removed as LA’s Shortstop

The Dodgers announced the massive move just weeks before the start of the season.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts announced that superstar Mookie Betts would be taking over at the shortstop position going forward. This comes after Roberts wouldn't commit to Gavin Lux being the team's shortstop following some poor defense during his early Cactus League games. 

Lux is coming back from a torn ACL, but the Dodgers don't have time to waste. They are all-in on winning baseball games, so Lux will now be moved over to second base for the time being. 

This is a move that has been talked about a lot recently, with fans potentially wanting a change. Now that it's here, here are some of the better reactions to the move. 

Most seemed to like the move, crediting Betts for his willingness to switch positions again. Betts switched from right field to second base early in the offseason.

However, there were some that aren't as thrilled with the decision. 

Either way, this is a move that the Dodgers felt they needed to make. Betts has shown an incredible willingness to do whatever the team needs, and this is just another example of that fact.

As for Lux, he'll have much less pressure on him at second base, and hopefully will be able to settle in early in the season before potentially moving back to shortstop.
