The stealing skill is the best in ML, but the hit doesn’t explode… All-weather outfielder, to the Mets

Tim Locastro, who played the role of backup outfielder for the New York Yankees until last season, will wear the uniform of the New York Mets next door from this season.

“SI” reporter Pat Ragazo said on the 10th (Korean time), “According to sources, outfielder Locastro has signed a minor league contract with the Mets. He also received an invitation to spring camp.”

Locastro has been on the big league stage since 2017, and has gone through the Los Angeles Dodgers, Arizona Diamondbacks and Yankees. He recorded a career batting average of 0.227, 7 home runs, 35 RBIs, 87 points, 39 steals, and an OPS of 0.656.

In particular, he has a tremendous work force, holding a record of 29 consecutive stolen bases since his debut. As a result, Tim Rains, the ‘great sword’ who entered the Hall of Fame by recording 808 stolen bases in the major leagues, sent praises to him.토토사이트

But the problem is the blow. He lacks power and lacks contact ability, so he doesn’t look good. Also, the defense catches batted balls with quick feet, but throws are not good because of a weak shoulder. As a result, he is participating in many games mainly as a runner or a great defense.

The Mets currently have an outfield of Mark Canha, Brandon Nemo and Starling Marte. Abraham Almonte and Carly Lee are in place as backups, but it is evaluated that Locastro will be more stable. He has a very good chance of joining the major league roster after spring training.
