Keegan Curtis was sent to the New York Yankees in exchange for Locastro on July 1, 2021, when the trade took place between the Diamondbacks and the Yankees.
On July 11, Locastro hit his first home run with the Yankees while they were playing against the Houston Astros’ Framber Valdez.
On July 17, 2021, while catching a fly ball off the bat of Boston Red Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo, Locastro suffered a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament, which ended his 2021 season.
Locastro played in nine games for the Yankees and had a batting average of 4-for-21 during that time.
At 30.7 feet per second (9.4 meters per second), Locastro’s sprint speed in 2021 was the fastest of any center fielder in the major leagues, and it was the second-fastest sprint speed in the major leagues overall.
On November 5, 2021, Locastro was picked up by the Boston Red Sox after being placed on waivers by his previous team.
On the other hand, his contract was not tendered on November 30, and he is now a free agent. The Yankees announced the signing of Locastro to a major league contract on March 13, 2022.
The contract is for one year. He started the 2022 campaign with the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders, but on April 17 of that year, he was called up to play in the major leagues.
