|Nate McLouth will need season-ending labrum surgery |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/19/14) Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth is set to miss the remainder of the season after the team announced he will require surgery to repair his right labrum Tuesday.
McLouth will go under the knife Thursday to repair his shoulder, after and MRI revealed more damage than initially thought. He has been out since suffering the injury in early August, and finished the season hitting .173/.280/.237 in 139 at-bats.
McLouth is still under contract with the Nationals for $5 million in 2015, the final season of a two-year deal.

|Nate McLouth hasn't started baseball activities yet |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/14/14) Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth has not started to perform baseball activities yet, according to The Washington Post.
McLouth is eligible to return from the disabled list Sunday, but that doesn't seem likely. He's still building his strength, according to manager Matt Williams. "He’s strengthening at this point," Williams said. "At some point here, we’ll get him back out and start testing it a little bit. He’s on target."
|Steven Souza promoted as Nate McLouth lands on DL |

|Nate McLouth likely heading to disabled list |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/3/14) Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth is likely to be placed on the disabled list with a shoulder injury, MLB.com reports.
McLouth failed to get a hit in 16 at-bats during the month of July, and he started out August by going 0 for 1 Friday. He has hit .173/.280/.237 with one home run, seven RBI and four stolen bases in 139 at-bats.
|Despite hitting .258 with 12 home runs and 30 steals last season, Nate McLouth enters 2014 in a projected bench role for the Nationals. The 32-year-old can play all three outfield positions (though the bulk of his at-bats over nine seasons have come in center and left), but is stuck behind Denard Span, Jayson Werth, and Bryce Harper on the depth chart. A full season's worth of McLouth at-bats would have justified a borderline mixed league draft pick; now, McLouth is a fourth or fifth outfielder for NL-only players. There's always a chance an injury opens up some playing time for him -- and talent usually finds a way into at-bats -- but McLouth is a Draft Day gamble, and carries enough risk to keep him in the $1-3 range.
