Latest Update Jose Lobaton went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI against the Rangers on Saturday. Sun Jun, 01, 06:16 AM
Has switch-hitting ability, which adds to his overall value as a catcher, plus he displays sound receiving and catch-and-throw skills.
Flaws: : Needs to cut down on his swing in order to have a more manageable strikeout rate. Must also become more assertive when calling a game.
With Wilson Ramos given the day off on Saturday, Lobaton got the start behind the dish and made the most of the opportunity. He is now sitting on a .228 average with two homers and 10 RBI through 92 at-bats as the team's backup catcher.Analyst: Matthew Beck
Starting soon, Lobaton will be out of the lineup permanently because Wilson Ramos will be returning to the Nationals. Lobaton certainly didn't embarrass himself at the plate while filling in for Ramos, but he is most certainly a backup whose fantasy value lies in deeper NL-Only leagues only.Analyst: David Kerr
Lobaton has done an adequate job filing in for the injured Wilson Ramos behind the dish, but has had little, if any, impact in the Nationals offense. He is currently sitting on a .239 average with one homer and two RBI through 46 at-bats. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Lobaton is a decent defensive catcher and puts up good on-base numbers. However, he'll play behind Wilson Ramos, so the number of at-bats he'll actually see would be in question.Analyst: Howard Bender
