The Diamondbacks announced on Wednesday that the club acquired outfielder Tim Locastro from the Yankees in exchange for pitcher Ronald Roman and cash considerations. Locastro was designated for assignment by the Yankees on Monday.

Locastro, 26, played briefly in the majors the last two years with the Dodgers, who designated him for assignment back in November. In 21 major league games, he owns a .583 OPS. Locastro has played strictly in the outfield in the big leagues, but spent significant time at second base and shortstop in the minors.

Locastro will provide depth for the Diamondbacks, who also recently signed Wilmer Flores.

The D-Backs signed Roman, 17, out of the Dominican Republic last summer.
