  • Ex-Orioles outfielder McLouth to undergo season-ending surgery

    Former Orioles and current Washington Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth will undergo season-ending shoulder surgery Thursday to repair a torn right labrum. The Nationals feared the veteran's lingering shoulder injury was bad when it didn't respond as well as expected to rest and treatment, and recent doctors' evaluations and an X-ray with contrast dye revealed the tear. McLouth has been playing with a hurt labrum all season, manager Matt Williams said, but the symptoms worsened when he made a diving attempt for a triple late last month. "It hasn't gotten any better since," Williams said. Williams said McLouth is expected to be ready for 2015 spring training. When McLouth first landed on the disabled list Aug. 4, the Nationals were hopeful shoulder inflammation wouldn't keep the outfielder out long. But McLouth had been playing with at least some discomfort for a while, and after the dive worsened it, the shoulder didn't improve with rest. McLouth has said the shoulder injury wasn't the reason for his rough first season in Washington. The Nationals signed him to a two-year, $10.75 million contract in hopes he would shore up their bench, but McLouth hit .173/.280/.237 with one home run and 35 strikeouts in 79 games. He acknowledged earlier this month that the shoulder had hampered his preparation.
