ANALYSIS
He will head down for a little over a week before rejoining the big club in September. Lockett did not pitch in his most recent big-league stint, instead just serving as added bullpen depth. He typically works as a mop-up man or spot starter.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Lockett put together an encouraging start to his 2016 season with Double-A San Antonio, where he backed up his great numbers with a 2.78 FIP and limited walks (0.6 BB/9). When Lockett arrived at Triple-A El Paso, his ERA took a hit. However, all was not lost for the young right-hander. At age 22, he was still fairly young for the Triple-A level, and his high BABIP .339 would indicate he was the victim of some bad luck. Additionally, Lockett maintained a low BB/9 of 1.0 at the highest farm level. Still, as a pitcher who has never generated a ton of strikeouts, he projects to be a low-ceiling strike thrower who is likely a year away from a major league call-up.
