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.

News: Lobaton was tendered a contract prior to Tuesday's deadline.
Impact: The Nationals like his defense and game-calling behind the plate, so Lobaton will return as an affordable backup to Wilson Ramos.
