Nationals placed OF Nate McLouth on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 27, with a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

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.

Nationals manager Matt Williams said Friday that Nate McLouth's (shoulder) availability for Opening Day is "in jeopardy."

McLouth's surgically-repaired right shoulder is still giving him issues when he throws. He had major surgery last August to repair a torn labrum, so it's not a surprise that he's encountered a hiccup along the way. Look for the Nationals to play it safe with McLouth and start him on the disabled list.

Nate McLouth was scratched from Saturday's lineup due to soreness in his surgically-repaired right shoulder.

Mar 2 - 8:37 AM

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."
