Auburn native Tim Locastro was called up to Triple-A on Monday.

The shortstop will report to the Oklahoma City Dodgers of the Pacific Coast League.

Locastro batted .273 with 17 doubles, 18 RBIs and 52 runs in 71 games with the Tulsa Drillers, and was selected as a Texas League all-star.

Locastro, originally a 13th round draft pick of the Toronto Blue Jays, was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers organization in 2015 and won the California League championship with Rancho Cucamonga (Advanced-A) that season.

The 24-year-old was promoted to Tulsa in 2016, and batted .277 with eight doubles, 13 RBIs and 27 runs in 45 games with the Drillers that season.

Locastro was not in Oklahoma City’s starting lineup for its game against Memphis Monday, but the teams meet again Tuesday.
