Nate McLouth will undergo season-ending surgery Thursday to repair the labrum in his right shoulder.

McLouth landed on the disabled list earlier this month with shoulder inflammation and will now shut things down for the year. The 32-year-old will close the book on his season with an ugly .173/.280/.237 batting line over 79 games. He's owed $5 million next season and his contract includes a $6.5 million club option or $750,000 buyout for 2016.

Nate McLouth will undergo an enhanced MRI on his ailing right shoulder.

Nate McLouth will receive a second opinion on his ailing right shoulder.

Nate McLouth (shoulder) has yet to resume baseball activities.

McLouth, who is nursing right shoulder inflammation, is eligible to be activated from the disabled list on Sunday but clearly won't return at that time. "He’s strengthening at this point," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "At some point here, we’ll get him back out and start testing it a little bit. He’s on target."

Nate McLouth received a cortisone shot in his right shoulder Monday.

Aug 4 - 4:25 PM

Nationals placed OF Nate McLouth on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation.

McLouth banged his shoulder while attempting a diving catch on July 28. The 32-year-old outfielder has offered next to no fantasy value this season, batting just .173/.280/.237 with one home run and four stolen bases in 79 games. Steven Souza was called up from Triple-A Syracuse in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
Aug 4 - 1:54 PM

The Nationals are expected to place Nate McLouth (shoulder) on the disabled list on Monday.

McLouth sustained the injury making a diving play in the outfield on July 28. He has had a tremendously disappointing season, hitting just .173 with one homer and seven RBI in his 79 games.
Aug 3 - 8:07 PM

Nate McLouth went 4-for-4 with a walk, a stolen base, and a two-run double in Wednesday's 10-inning loss to the Marlins.

It was a night of missed opportunities for the Nationals, who banged out 15 hits and drew five walks. They were never able to push McLouth across home plate. It was a nice display of offense from McLouth, who had been struggling offensively entering the night. He pushes his slash line up to .182/.321/.261 on the season.
May 28 - 10:57 PM

Nate McLouth is not in the Nationals' lineup Tuesday after re-opening the scab on his right hand during Monday's batting practice and game.

He's available off the bench. The injury has been poor timing for McLouth, as he was slated to play regularly against righties with Bryce Harper (thumb). Of course, he's hitting only .091/.254/.164 this season, so the Nats probably haven't missed much in the week he's been out.
May 13 - 7:54 PM

Nate McLouth returned to the starting lineup on Saturday, but went 0-for-3 against the A's.

It was McLouth's first start since he sliced open his hand making a terrific catch against the wall five days ago. Unfortunately, McLouth is still slumping offensively; he's just 4-for-50 this season and he's without a hit since April 27. The Nationals need more from him with Bryce Harper and now Adam LaRoche out.

May 8 - 8:46 AM
