Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Demoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

Locastro has seen a drop in his role and performance since the calendar turned to August, as he's hitting just .176 with a .476 OPS in nine games (three starts) this month. The 27-year-old should return when rosters expand in September after seeing regular playing time in the minors. Stefan Crichton was summoned from the minors in a corresponding move.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Pops first MLB homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Yankees.

Locastro started in place of the resting Adam Jones and popped his first home run in the majors. Power is not the outfielder's calling card; Locastro hit just 36 bombs across seven minor-league seasons (592 games).

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Leading off in series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro will start in left field and bat leadoff Monday against the Marlins.

Six of Locastro's last eight starts have come out of the leadoff spot, but the speedster's status as a short-side platoon player makes him difficult to justify including in lineups during weeks the Diamondbacks aren't facing a spate of left-handed starting pitchers. He'll at least make for a decent punt play in DFS contests while setting the table for Arizona against Marlins southpaw Caleb Smith. Locastro boasts a .365 on-base percentage on the season and has gone a perfect 9-for-9 on stolen-base attempts.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Starts Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro started in left field and went 1-for-5 in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Rockies.

Locastro started in place of the injured David Peralta (shoulder), who was placed on the injured list Friday. The left-handed hitting Jarrod Dyson replaced Peralta against a right-hander Friday while it was the right-handed hitting Locastro against another right-hander Saturday. So, judging by the first two games without Peralta, manager Torey Lovullo may not go with a strict platoon to replace the injured left fielder.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Fills in for Peralta
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro entered Wednesday's game after left fielder David Peralta (shoulder) was removed. He went hitless in three at-bats in a 5-4 loss to the Dodgers.

Peralta is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Thursday, so we'll learn more about his status. If he faces an extended absence, Locastro would be the main beneficiary.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Provides insurance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a stolen base in Monday's 8-5 win over the Dodgers.

Per usual, Locastro was in the lineup against a left-handed starter but had his lone hit against right-handed reliever Dylan Floro in the eighth inning, That's when the Diamondbacks plated four runs, including two on Locastro's single that gave Arizona breathing room entering the final frame. The stolen base was Locastro's sixth of the season and first in 18 contests. He showed off his speed when called up in late May, swiping three bags in six games, but he went 17 games without one until Monday.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Walks off Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro went 2-for-5 with two RBI in Sunday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Giants.

Locastro started in center field with Ketel Marte (groin) unavailable and delivered a walk-off single in the 10th, snapping Arizona's six-game losing streak, the last five coming on their home field. He had been getting consistent playing time while David Peralta and Adam Jones were on the shelf, but the at-bats have dwindled since. He could retreat to the bench Monday if Marte, who was available off the bench Sunday, per Julia Stambaugh and Jenna Ortiz of the Arizona Republic, returns Monday when the Dodgers come to town.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Returns to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies.

With Adam Jones (hamstring) back in the lineup for the series opener in Philadelphia, Locastro will be the odd man out of the outfield mix on the heels of four straight starts. The speedy Locastro could still get the opportunity to split time in center field with Jarrod Dyson, especially if shortstop Nick Ahmed's foot injury results in the versatile Ketel Marte seeing more time in the middle infield.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro will start in right field and bat eighth Sunday against the Blue Jays.

It's the fourth straight start for Locastro, who snapped out of a 1-for-14 funk over his previous five games with a two-hit performance in Saturday's 6-0 win. Locastro and Jarrod Dyson are essentially fighting for one spot in the everyday lineup, but both could see their opportunities dwindle once Adam Jones (hamstring) returns to action.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Fills in for Jones
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro started in right field in place of the injured Adam Jones (hamstring) and went 0-for-3 with a run scored in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Dodgers.

Jones' injury is not considered serious, but it could potentially sideline Jones for at least a couple of games. Therefore, Locastro could be in line for at-bats both Thursday and Friday.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Remains in MLB
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro remained on the Diamondbacks' roster after the team activated David Peralta (shoulder) off the injured list Monday.

Locastro was originally summoned from Triple-A Reno when Peralta was placed on the IL, but he made such a positive impact that he'll stick around for a while longer. In nine games while Peralta was unavailable, Locastro posted a line of .321/.486/.500 with three stolen bases, four RBI and seven runs scored. He came off the bench as a pinch hitter Monday and popped out in his lone at-bat.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Pinch-hitting hero
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro went 1-for-1 with a stolen base, an RBI single and a run scored in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Mets.

He got aboard with a walk in the eighth inning as a pinch hitter, and he came around to score on a Ketel Marte single. Locastro then won the game with an 11th-inning single to score Kevin Cron. In his last eight games, Locastro has three steals and six runs scored while primarily playing left field in place of the injured David Peralta (shoulder).

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro is not in the lineup Saturday against the Mets.

Locastro will sit after starting four games in a row. He owns a strong .842 OPS in 52 plate appearances this season, but will givw way to Jarrod Dyson in left field Saturday.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Swipes fourth bag
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Mets.

Locastro stole his fourth base in 19 games this season with the Diamondbacks. He's started four straight games and six of eight since his most recent callup, serving as a replacement for the injured David Peralta (shoulder). He's batting .304 (7-for-23) with a .448 on-base percentage and two steals during the current stint for Arizona. With news that Peralta took batting practice Friday and could appear in an extended spring training game this weekend, Locastro's regularity in the starting lineup could end soon.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Faring well since callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro went 2-for-3 with a double in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Rockies.

Locastro made his third start since being called up Friday, but this was the first against a right-hander. Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo had been deploying a platoon in left field to replace the injured David Peralta (shoulder), using Locastro against lefties and Blake Swihart when a right-hander started. Locastro has hit safely in all three starts and overall is 5-for-10 with three doubles, three RBI, a stolen base and three runs scored since the callup.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Sits out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Giants, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.

Locastro and Blake Swihart have been splitting time in left field since David Peralta (shoulder) landed on the 10-day injured list, with both players drawing two starts apiece. A timeshare arrangement may be in store until one player separates himself from the other in the competition.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Getting on base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, an RBI and two runs in Saturday's 10-4 win over the Giants.

Locastro made his second straight start since Friday's callup as San Francisco started left-handers in each contest. He's been an on-base machine in the two games, reaching base seven times, including being hit by a pitch three times Friday. The 26-year-old has been hit 161 times across parts of seven minor-league seasons and seven times in 34 plate appearances for Arizona in 2019. "I sort of realized that teams like to pound me in so I'm trying to use it as an advantage," Locastro told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. "If they can't hit their spot in, then they hit me and I'm on base. Then I can be aggressive on the basepaths and score a lot of runs." Locastro showed off his aggression Saturday, turning a bloop single into a double. He can make himself useful to the D-backs with his speed -- he stole eight bases in 24 games at Triple-A Reno in 2019 and has stolen at least 20 in every season since 2014 -- but it's uncertain he stays up with the club when David Peralta (shoulder) returns.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Starts against left-hander
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro started in left field and went 1-for-3 with two RBI in Friday's 18-2 win over the Giants.

Locastro was called up from Triple-A Reno on Friday after David Peralta (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list. He got the start against left-hander Drew Pomeranz, likely because the switch-hitting Blake Swihart, who had been filling in for Peralta, has a career .499 OPS against southpaws.

Diamondbacks' Tim Locastro: Returns to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Locastro was recalled from Triple-A Reno on Friday.

Locastro was returned to the minor leagues May 7 after a brief five-day stint with the big club. He'll take the place of David Peralta (shoulder), who was placed on the 10-day injured list.
