Washington Nationals C Jose Lobaton went 1-for-3 with a solo home run with a walk and two runs scored Tuesday, July 19, against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Washington Nationals C Wilson Ramos and SS Danny Espinosa are out of the lineup Wednesday, July 6, with SS Stephen Drew and C Jose Lobaton hitting seventh and eighth.

Washington Nationals C Wilson Ramos is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 1. C Jose Lobaton is behind the plate and is hitting eighth against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani.

Fantasy Tip: Of this afternoon's three replacements in the Washington lineup, Drew is the most productive source of salary cap relief for daily fantasy contests.
