Ok, ok, ok, so Tim Locastro probably won’t make the club out of Spring Training… or potentially at all, for that matter. However, the Mets have added the speedster to the organization on a MiLB deal.
The Syracuse, New York native spent 2021 and 2022 with the Yankees before the bombers granted Locastro his Free Agency.
In his two seasons with the Yankees, the utility man has a .188/.232/.375/.607 slash line with three home runs and 6 RBI’s in 64 at bats.
Unfortunately, his career numbers aren’t much better. Throughout his six year career, Locastro hit .227/.235/.331/.656 while displaying blazing speed but is just an average defender in the field.
Locastro will serve as depth for the Mets, as I see him starting 2023 in the city in which he was born.
