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

Big night in Game 2
OFArizona Diamondbacks
September 26, 2020
Locastro went 3-for-3 with a walk, two RBI, two runs scored and was hit by a pitch in the second game of Friday's doubleheader against the Rockies.
ANALYSIS
Locastro reached base five times, including the fourth time he'd been hit by a pitch in just 77 plate appearances. That's a skill he honed in 2019, when he was hit a team-high 22 times as a bench player. The 28-year-old outfielder has largely been bypassed while the Diamondbacks take a closer look at younger players like Daulton Varsho and Pavin Smith. This was just Locastro's second start in the last 11 games.
