Infielder Steve Lombardozzi and right-hander Brad Peacock were named the Nationals' minor league Player of the Year and Pitcher of the Year, respectively, Saturday, being recognized for standout seasons that got each one called up to the majors this month.
Lombardozzi, who has started two games for the Nationals this week, hit .309 with 25 doubles, nine triples, eight homers and 52 RBIs at Double-A Harrisburg and Triple-A Syracuse this year, stealing 30 bases.
And Peacock, who was promoted to Triple-A Syracuse after the All-Star Futures Game in July, went 15-3 in the minors with a 2.39 ERA and 177 strikeouts. He made his major league debut on Tuesday, pitching in relief of Stephen Strasburg.
Both players will be honored on the field before tonight's game.
