News: Lobaton went 3-for-3 with two doubles and an RBI against the Cardinals on Friday.
Impact: He's hitting just .207.281/.345 this spring in 29 at-bats, but Lobaton is locked is as the Nationals' No. 2 catcher, a role that has more playing time potential than most backup gigs given Wilson Ramos' inability to stay healthy.

News: Lobaton agreed to a one-year, $1.2 million contract with the Nationals on Thursday, Jon Morosi of Fox Sports reports.
Impact: Lobaton had a good defensive season for the Nationals in 2014, playing in 66 games as the backup to Wilson Ramos. He finished the campaign with a .234/.287/.304 batting line, hitting two home runs and driving in 12 on the season. He figures to fit into the same role again in 2015.
