Steve Lombardozzi will take over at second base in Ian Desmond's absence, with Danny Epinosa shifting to shortstop.
Lombardozzi is immediately startable in all NL-only formats. Mark DeRosa, meanwhile, will be Washington's primary backup infielder, which makes him worth a roster spot in deep NL-only formats. While he doesn't have eye-popping numbers, the 23-year-old Lombardozzi has done a nice job for the Nats, hitting .267 with 15 RBI over 248 plate appearances, while playing terrific defense at four different positions. If the Nationals don't make a trade, Lombardozzi will spend at least a month as a regular, as Desmond isn't expected back until late-August or early-September.
