Insight: Anthony Rendon is 2-for-15 with five strikeouts in his first four major league games and Lombardozzi is batting .345 with three doubles in 29 at-bats. We also could see Lombardozzi get some starts at second base with Danny Espinosa swinging a cold stick.

Description: Washington second baseman Steve Lombardozzi pounded four hits Wednesday in the Nationals' 6-4 win over the Giants.
Insight: Lombardozzi has actually been playing pretty well lately (15-for-30 over his last seven games) and his eligibility at more than one position is a plus, but it might still be a bit early to declare him "fantasy-worthy" just yet.
