The Nationals recalled Lobstein from Triple-A Rochester on Tuesday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports. The lefty has posted a 1.69 ERA in 16 Triple-A relief appearances this season, with all four of his earned runs coming in one outing May 22.

He'll join a Nationals bullpen that's already missing many of its top relievers and just lost Tanner Rainey (leg) to the injured list as well.
