Lobaton got the start behind the plate in Tuesday's loss to the Dodgers and went 1-for-3 with a walk, a solo home run and two runs scored.

EDGE Analysis

The homer was Lobaton's third of the year but he's hitting just .194/.301/.361 in 72 at-bats on the season. Nats manager Dusty Baker used Monday's off day to give Wilson Ramos an extra bit of rest, but Lobaton isn't likely to start seeing more than about one start a week unless Ramos falls into a major slump.

Lobaton is seeing rare action given that Wilson Ramos is missing his first start since mid-May. The 31-year-old has gone hitless in his last 12 at bats, reducing his average to a paltry .163 this season.

Lobaton is in the lineup for Saturday's tilt with the Marlins.

Lobaton was 2-for-3 with a triple and three RBI in the Nationals' win over Minnesota on Friday night.

EDGE Analysis

It was a nice night at the plate for Lobaton who was filling in for Wilson Ramos as he took a well-deserved night off, but he doesn't get enough opportunities to be of much value in most fantasy formats.

Lobaton is in the lineup and batting eighth for Friday's game against the Twins, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Lobaton will start to give Wilson Ramos a day to rest after he caught four straight games against the Marlins this week. He is just 1-for-7 this season and doesn't offer much for fantasy value.

Lobaton will get the start in place of Wilson Ramos (rest) on Tuesday against Atlanta, Chase Hughes of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

This will be Lobaton's first start of the season, and he has yet to even make a plate appearance. He hit only .269 in spring training after a dismal performance last season in which he hit .199 in 44 appearances. Expect Ramos back behind the plate Wednesday, regardless of how Lobaton performs.

Lobaton is hitting .316 (6-for-19) through 12 games this spring.

EDGE Analysis

He's also struck out seven times, however, and with Nationals' starting catcher Wilson Ramos seemingly headed for a big year following LASIK surgery to correct an eyesight issue, playing time could be hard for Lobaton to come by in 2016. He might hit a little better than last season's .199/.279/.294 line, but don't expect a big increase on his 136 at-bats.
