The Nationals named infielder Steve Lombardozzi their minor league player of the year and right-hander Brad Peacock their minor league pitcher of the year. The Nationals already rewarded both players earlier this week by making them September call-ups.
Lombardozzi, a 19th-round pick in 2008, hit .309 with eight home runs and 30 steals in 134 games combined between Class AAA Syracuse and Class AA Harrisburg. He made only two errors in 597 total chances playing mostly second base, with some action at shortstop and third base.
Peacock, a 41st-round pick in 2006, had also been named the Class AA Eastern League pitcher of the year. Peacock went 15-3 with a 2.39 ERA, 177 strikeouts and 47 walks in 146 2/3 combined innings between Class AA Harrisburg and Class AAA Syracuse. Peacock also played in the Futures Game at this year’s all-star break.
