News: Lobaton went 3-for-4 Saturday with a two-run homer off Julio Teheran, his second homer of the season.
Impact: He's owned Teheran in his career, and Saturday's performance just added to the dominance. Lobaton hasn't seen a lot of work behind Wilson Ramos so far, but he's now hitting .304/.429/.565 in 23 at-bats on the season.

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.
