Gavin Lux’s Comical Reactions To Dodgers Teammates’ Home Run Spawned So Many Jokes

Gavin Lux Comical Reaction To Dodgers Teammates Home Run

Los Angeles Dodgers star Cody Bellinger has already firmly established his ability to become a dank meme, but on Monday night his teammate Gavin Lux joined the club with his hilarious reactions to teammate Max Muncy’s home run.

The the 23-year-old Dodgers middle infielder, who is currently on the disabled list with a strained hamstring suffered on Sunday, was still in the dugout during his team’s 7-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants when Muncy smacked a bomb in the first inning of Giants starter Kevin Gausman.

Not since Winona Ryder listening David Harbour’s speech at the 2017 SAG Awards have we witnessed a person going through such an unusual display of emotions.

Gavin, Winona. Winona, Gavin.

Naturally, because internet, Gavin Lux and his many faces of confusion slash happiness were immediately turned into a plethora of jokes, GIFs and memes on social media.

Hard to argue with that logic. Especially since this is far from the first time we have been able to enjoy them.

According to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, Lux’s hamstring injury, suffered running out of the batter’s box on a ground ball in the ninth inning of Sunday’s loss to the Colorado Rockies, “could take some time” to heal.

Hopefully his rehab won’t take him away from the team, and more importantly the Los Angeles Dodgers dugout during his absence from the playing field.

Outfielder Zach Reks, a man with perhaps the coolest name in baseball, was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City to take Lux’s place on the active roster.

Lux had been filling in at shortstop for Corey Seager who has also been on the disabled list since May 15 with a broken bone in his hand. It is hoped that he will return to the Dodgers’ lineup sometime in the next week or so.
