Lux was born in Carcarañá, Santa Fe Province. Nicknamed Poroto, he joined Club Atlético River Plate's youth ranks aged 16, and made his first division debuts in 2001. Shortly after, he became first-choice.
In the 2006 Apertura Lux lost his job to emergent talent Juan Pablo Carrizo and, a few months after, was cut from the squad by coach Daniel Passarella. In the beginning of the year he also lost his brother, who committed suicide.
Lux signed a four-year deal with RCD Mallorca for the 2007–08 season, as a backup to youth graduate Miguel Ángel Moyà, but benefitted from an injury to the latter to appear in ten La Liga games during the campaign. In his second year, the same occurred: Moyà was again downed with physical problems and Lux was promoted to starter, but lost his job in January 2009 with the signing of Dudu Aouate from Deportivo de La Coruña.
In the following two seasons, Lux was almost exclusively restricted to Copa del Rey matches with Mallorca, only amassing five league appearances combined. The same fate befell him in his next club, Deportivo La Coruña, where he played second-fiddle to Daniel Aranzubia.
During the 2005 Confederations Cup, he had a poor performance, allowing ten goals in five matches, four of them in the final. Lux was left out of the Argentine squad for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, with coach José Pekerman deciding to pick Oscar Ustari instead.
