2020 Fantasy Outlook
Locastro led MLB with a 30.8 ft/sec sprint speed, but he can't steal first. What he can do is get free trips to first base the hard way as he specializes in being hit by pitches. Locastro was hit by pitches 31 times last season between Triple-A and the majors, which is how a guy who hit .250 with a 5.6 BB% ended up with a .357 on-base percentage. He has been hit by pitches 20 or more times six different seasons in his professional career, so it is a skill for him at this point. The problem is, there are not many other skills. Locastro puts bat to ball at a fine clip, but with little authority -- his 25.3 Soft% would have ranked last among qualified hitters. He is an ideal reserve outfielder on a real ball club, making him a fifth outfielder in an NL-only league for a fantasy manager looking for steals, runs and nothing else. The power simply is not there. Read Past Outlooks

Makes first start
OFArizona Diamondbacks
August 2, 2020
Locastro started in right field and went 0-for-3 in Saturday's 11-2 loss to the Dodgers.
ANALYSIS
Locastro made his first start of the season, filling in for Kole Calhoun, after serving as pinch hitter, pinch runner and defensive replacement at different times throughout the campaign. For the season, he's 0-for-4 with two runs scored. If Locastro is ever able to get consistent at-bats, the speedy outfielder, who stole 17 bags in 250 plate appearances in 2019, could be a valuable source of steals.
