Locastro got off to a solid start this season before dislocating his finger while stealing a base in mid-April. He's struggled to find his way since being activated in early May. He's slashing just .178/.271/.220 with one home run, five RBI, and five stolen bases. His speed is his greatest asset and he should serve as solid outfield depth for the Bronx Bombers the rest of the way.
