Orioles optioned INF Steve Lombardozzi to Triple-A Norfolk.

They've chosen to keep three catchers on the roster for the time being. Lombardozzi's second stint with the big club this season was a brief one, as he was just called up Saturday.
May 25 - 12:51 PM

Orioles recalled INF Steve Lombardozzi from Triple-A Norfolk.

Lombardozzi began the season with the Orioles, hitting .292/.301/.333 with two RBI and a 13/0 K/BB ratio in 72 at-bats. He's a valuable bench option with his ability to play all over the field.

Orioles optioned INF Steve Lombardozzi to Triple-A Norfolk.

Lombardozzi started 13 straight games at second base for the Orioles at one point this season, but Jonathan Schoop has since taken over the position. Lombardozzi got the boot Thursday to clear a roster spot for Manny Machado, who was activated from the disabled list.
May 1 - 1:03 PM

Steve Lombardozzi went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored as the Orioles lost to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Lombardozzi hasn't had much to offer in the way of power, but he's carrying an impressive .318 average over 67 plate appearances playing second base just about every day for the Orioles.
Apr 22 - 10:39 PM

Orioles acquired INF Steve Lombardozzi from the Tigers for SS Alex Gonzalez.

The Tigers landed Lombardozzi from the Nationals this winter in the Doug Fister trade but decided to unload him on Monday morning to bring in some veteran shortstop help. Lombardozzi can play all around the diamond and should be an active utilityman this summer in Baltimore. The 25-year-old is a Maryland native.
Mar 24 - 9:22 AM

Steve Lombardozzi went 2-for-3 and drove home a run as the Tigers fell to the Yankees in Grapefruit League action on Friday.

The 25-year-old utilityman who came over in this winter's Doug Fister trade, got the start at second base in this one. He's likely to see considerable action all over the field for the Tigers in 2014, and makes for a nice middle infield option in deeper AL-only leagues.
Mar 8 - 9:59 AM

Tigers acquired INF Steve Lombardozzi from the Nationals in the Doug Fister trade.

Lomardozzi is only a career .264/.297/.342 hitter, but he offers versatility and is just 25 years of age. He will operate in a utility role for the Tigers next season.

Steve Lombardozzi went 3-for-4 with a two-run double in Friday's win over the Phillies.

The three-hit night pulled his batting average up from .220 to .242 on the year. With Danny Espinosa (wrist) ailing, Lombardozzi should get regular playing time at second base over the next few days. He doesn't excel in any one category, but with his multi-position eligibility, he could be useful in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.

Nationals manager Davey Johnson said during a radio appearance Wednesday that Steve Lombardozzi will play second base for the final two games of the series against the Braves.

This means that the struggling Danny Espinosa will take a seat. Of course, Lombardozzi hasn't been much better lately, as he's hitless over his last 13 at-bats dating back to April 23. Still, it's a situation to monitor in fantasy leagues.

Nationals manager Davey Johnson said Wednesday that Steve Lombardozzi will begin playing regularly.

The Nationals have struggled to produce offensively over the past week and believe starting Lombardozzi could provide a spark. The 24-year-old is hitting .345 with an .815 OPS in 31 plate appearances this season. He can play a variety of positions and will get a nice boost in fantasy value with the added playing time.

While his teammates were combining for 16 hits and 12 runs, Steve Lombardozzi went 0-for-6 for the Nationals on Sunday.

The Nationals are optimistic that Danny Espinosa's shoulder problems won't force him out of the lineup at any point, but Lombardozzi is supposed to be their fallback if something goes wrong. Now it's worth wondering if Anthony Rendon might not be the choice instead. While Rendon is tearing it up this spring, Lombardozzi is 9-for-52 with a couple of doubles, no homers and one walk.

Steve Lombardozzi was responsible for all of the Nationals' offense in Saturday's loss to the Phillies, smashing a two-run double in the fifth inning.

Lombardozzi finished the night 1-for-4. He's been a nice luxury for the Nationals to have this season, able to fill in at several positions without a major dropoff offensively. The 23-year-old is hitting .283 with two home runs, 23 RBI and four stolen bases.
Sat, Aug 25, 2012 10:03:00 PM

Steve Lombardozzi had four hits, including a triple, and four runs scored against the Diamondbacks on Friday.

A rare big night for the Nationals' leadoff man; Lombardozzi entered the game with a .248/.291/.336 line and 22 runs scored in 51 games from that spot. He scored as many runs tonight as he had in his previous 17 starts combined.

Steve Lombardozzi will take over at second base in Ian Desmond's absence, with Danny Espinosa 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.
