Rarely do you get the chance to write a story while really wanting to know how the story ends. On this occasion, it will need filed in the ‘to be continued section’.
Apparently, Los Angeles Dodgers’ veteran Justin Turner has given the newest Dodger Gavin Lux a nickname. This nugget comes to us from our good friend Michael Duarte of NBC Sports on twitter. However, the origin of the moniker is not yet known.
Justin Turner has coined the nickname “Donald” for rookie Gavin Lux. He won’t explain the origin, but asked that the media refer to him as “Donald,” from here on out. #Dodgers

As the story goes, Turner coined the nickname “Donald” for the rookie Lux. According to Duarte, Turner will not elaborate on the story behind the nickname, but he has asked the media to refer to Lux as “Donald” from this point forward.
Therefore, who am I to not comply with the bearded man’s wishes? To me, Lux will never be called anything but Donald again. Or at least – until I know where the nickname come from – he’s just Donald to me.
Equally important – you can venture some healthy guesses. Perhaps Lux reminds Turner of Donald Duck? Or is it possible that Lux is a Donald Trump fan? The world may never know, that is; unless someone does some major sleuth work.
Gavin Lux’s nickname could become one of the biggest mysteries in both baseball and Dodgers’ circles for years to come. If only FRG could have known this weeks ago when Lux appeared on the Blue Heaven Podcast as a special guest.
Finally, we will do our best to find out why this is Lux’s nickname. With that being said, what is your guess? Or does anyone have any intel that could help solve the great mystery of ‘Donald’ Lux? Let us know what you know or your thoughts in the comments section below. I really hope that he’s ‘Donald’ on Player’s Weekend 2020, for some reason.
