Nationals' Jose Lobaton: Batting average at career low
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lobaton is 10-for-68 with two home runs and two RBI this season for Washington.

Now in his fourth season with the Nationals, the 32-year-old veteran is having a poor year at the plate, even by his standards. The .147 batting average is on pace to be his career worst over the course of a full season. His strength remains on the defensive side of the game, which is great for Manager Dusty Baker but doesn't do much to help fantasy owners.

Nationals' Jose Lobaton: Few opportunities in backup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lobaton has seven hits in 50 at-bats so far this season.

The 32-year-old's core value remains as a defensive specialist, and he has yet to be utilized as a pinch hitter or appear in back-to-back games this year. Lobaton's career .221/.296/.326 slash line doesn't inspire confidence for a major turnaround in his current role behind Matt Wieters. The Nationals' backup catcher has one home run and one RBI in 14 games this season.

Nationals' Jose Lobaton: Receiving start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lobaton is in the Nationals' Thursday lineup behind the plate and batting eighth, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.

He's spelling Matt Wieters with Max Scherzer on the mound. Lobaton has occasional NL-only fantasy value but hardly plays or does enough at the dish to justify using in most two-catcher mixed leagues.

Nationals' Jose Lobaton: Pops first homer Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lobaton went 1-for-5 with a solo home run in Friday's extra-inning win over the Mets.

He made his first hit of the season count, driving a Matt Harvey fastball over the fence in center field in the fifth inning. Lobaton will continue to get the occasional start when Matt Wieters needs a rest, but the 32-year-old doesn't see enough action or offer enough upside to be useful even in deep two-catcher leagues.

Nationals' Jose Lobaton: Back in lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lobaton (forearm) will catch and bat eighth in the lineup for Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

As expected, Labaton is back behind the dish Monday following a week-long absence due to the forearm injury. With the Nationals having recently released Derek Norris, Lobaton looks set to open the season as the backup to No. 1 catcher Matt Wieters.
