Yanks make minor deal.

From the NY Post:

The Yankees acquired outfielder Tim Locastro from the Dodgers on Wednesday for minor league right-hander Drew Finley and $75,000.

The 26-year-old Locastro made his big-league debut with the Dodgers in 2017, appearing in three games, and hit .182 (2 for 11) this year with one double and four steals in 18 games, including three starts in center field. He batted .286 with 23 doubles, four homers, 29 RBIs and 19 steals in the minors this year, mostly at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Locastro is a native of Auburn, New York, and played at Ithaca College.

Finley, 22, spent the past three seasons with the Class A Staten Island Yankees and was 2-4 with a 7.24 ERA this year in one start and 15 relief appearances.

Locastro has played in only 21 MLB games, going 2 for 12 (.167) with 5 SB. A .292 hitter in the minors, it appears he has little power, about 7 HR, 50 HR per year if about 120 games, but has some speed, about 40 SB a year if at that pace. Bats righty.  Mostly 2B, CF and SS.  Put on the 40 man, now full. Basically minor league depth. Of course, with future moves and free agent signings, that 40 man will be very flexible this offseason.
