MLB: Red Sox ‘steal’ player from Yankees directly off waivers

If there is a fierce rivalry full of sports hatred on MLB that’s the one for the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, who year after year show us why Enmity is simply known as “The Rivalry”. So much is the mutual contempt that since 1968 there have only been 7 changes directly between them, and although this transaction is not a trade specifically, there has been a transaction directly.

According to the Red Sox themselves reported through an official statement, the Boston team has claimed waivers from the outfielder of the New York Yankees, Tim Locastro, who arrived in the Bronx in the middle of the season through a change that the New York team did with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Unfortunately for Locastro, who is a self-confessed fan of the Bronx Bombers, he was only able to play 9 games for the Yankees since his arrival, as he tore the ACL in one of his knees on July 17 against the Red Sox of Boston.

Tim Locastro is an excellent defender known for his skill with the glove and speed to steal the bases, as he even holds the all-time record for the most consecutive swindles without being put out since the start of his career with 28. However His batting ability pales in the face of his speed, hitting just .231 in his career with just 5 home runs.

I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.
