Nationals declined OF Nate McLouth's $6.5 million option for the 2016 season.
It was a call made easy by McLouth missing the entire 2015 season due to lingering shoulder troubles. The 34-year-old received a $750,000 buyout instead. He won't be very attractive as a free agent, but some organization will probably take a chance in the hope that he can stay healthy and provide versatile outfield depth. Mon, Nov 2, 2015 03:57:00 PM

Sources tells Bill Ladson of MLB.com that Nate McLouth (shoulder) is expected to be out for the rest of the season.

McLouth hasn't played at all in 2015 after tearing the labrum in his right shoulder last year. The sources said McLouth recently had his shoulder cleaned up and should be ready to go for 2016. The 33-year-old will surely be searching for a new home this winter, unless the Nats find a reason to exercise his $6.5 million option.

Nate McLouth (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing.

McLouth had a setback with his surgically-repaired right shoulder nearly two weeks ago and will begin the season on the disabled list. "I can still hit," he said. "But after I would hit, and stopped throwing for a little bit, I would hit and fire it back up to where I couldn’t throw. … It’s frustrating. There’s only so many exercises you can do before you start going crazy." McLouth is hoping to be cleared to resume throwing in a few days, but his status is totally up in the air at the moment.

Nate McLouth (shoulder) admitted Friday that he's not 100 percent yet but anticipates getting there in the next few weeks.

Working his way back from last August's surgery to repair the labrum in his right shoulder, McLouth said throwing and swinging a bat "feels normal." but he still needs to work on building up strength. Barring a setback, he'll be fine for Opening Day. "The thing I still have to work up to is the endurance, the volume," he said. "I’ve been swinging fine, throwing fine. But when you get down here and start getting into the season, the volume just increases, the intensity. I think that’s something I’ll ease my way back into hopefully in the next couple weeks. But I’m real happy with the way that it feels."
