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

March 3, 2020
Locastro batted leadoff and went 2-for-3 in Monday's spring game against San Francisco.
ANALYSIS
Locastro is lining up to be the Diamondbacks' fourth outfielder, but he can be helpful in the pesky category of steals while playing a limited role. He led the league in sprint speed (30.8 feet per second) last season and used that skill to swipe 17 bags in 250 plate appearances.
