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.

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.

Nate McLouth (hand) made an appearance on defense in the Nationals' win over the Dodgers on Wednesday.

May 6 - 4:21 PM

Nate McLouth left Monday's game in the eighth inning with an apparent right hand injury after sliding into the left field wall.

May 6 - 1:03 AM

Nate McLouth went 0-for-3 at the plate in Thursday's loss to the Cardinals.

McLouth is handling center field while Denard Span (concussion) is out, but he's not taking advantage of the opportunity. He has just one hit in 14 at-bats since taking over for Span and is now hitting an ugly .087/.250/.130 with no RBI on the season.
Apr 17 - 10:29 PM

Nate McLouth (knee) will start in center field and bat seventh Tuesday against the Marlins.

Nate McLouth had a solo homer, an RBI double and a walk against the Marlins on Monday.

McLouth had great springs the last couple of years, but entered today at .200/.265/.333 with 10 strikeouts in 30 at-bats this year. The Nationals are paying him more than $5 million per year to be their fourth outfielder, so they're expecting him to produce.
Mar 24 - 4:28 PM

Nationals signed OF Nate McLouth to a two-year, $10.75 million contract.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported news of an agreement last week while Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun passed along the details of the contract, which is said to include an option for a third year. McLouth, 32, batted .258/.329/.399 with 12 homers and 30 stolen bases for the Orioles this past season and should be an active fourth outfielder in Washington. However, it could be tough for him to carve out value in most mixed fantasy leagues.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Nationals have agreed to terms on a two-year contract with Nate McLouth.

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun says the deal is for $10.75 million and also includes an option for a third season. The Nats don't have a starting spot for McLouth, but he can play all three outfield positions and is expected to get more playing time than your average fourth outfielder. The 32-year-old batted .258/.329/.399 with 12 homers and 30 stolen bases for the Orioles in 2013.

Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun reports that the Orioles remain interested in re-signing Nate McLouth, and have spoken with his representatives in recent days.

The 32-year-old outfielder earned $2 million on a one-year deal in 2013, and is seeking a multi-year contract this winter. McLouth is coming off a rebound season where he slashed .258/.329/.399 with 12 homers, 36 RBI and 30 steals. Whether back in Baltimore or elsewhere, he should be able to land a two-year pact as the strong side of an outfield platoon.
