Biographical Information[edit]

Infielder Tim Locastro was the 262nd and final player to make his major league debut in 2017, doing so on September 29th for the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Colorado Rockies when he entered the game as a pinch-runner in the 8th and stayed in to play left field. He ended up playing in the Dodgers' final three games that year, getting his lone plate appearance on the final day, October 1st.

Locastro was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 13th round in the 2013 amateur draft. On July 2, 2015, he was traded to the Dodgers alongside Chase De Jong in return for two international bonus slots. That move allowed the Jays to sign prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. He largely played the infield in his first four minor league seasons, before being used as a utility player by the Dodgers for the AA Tulsa Drillers and AAA Oklahoma City Dodgers in 2017. He hit .308/.383/.454 in 127 games that year prior to his call-up to the Show.

In 2018, he played 18 games for the Dodgers, going 2-for-11 with a double. He also played 83 games for Oklahoma City, where he hit .279/.389/.409, and 6 games on a rehabilitation assignment with the AZL Dodgers. On November 21st, he was traded to the New York Yankees in return for Class A pitcher Drew Finley and $75,000. On January 16, 2019, he was traded again, this time heading to the Arizona Diamondbacks in return for P Ronald Roman.
