News: McLouth's shoulder felt good after a batting practice session on Saturday, and he expects to be fully recovered from his labrum surgery before Opening Day, the Washington Post reports. "Strength-wise, as far as working out, I'm pretty much at 100 percent," McLouth said. "But it's still building up the arm and the amount of swings is where I'm at. But everything I've done so far feels fine."
Impact: The veteran will once again be the Nationals' fourth outfielder in 2015 if he's healthy, a role that could give McLouth some value out of the gate in April if Jayson Werth's own shoulder issues delay the start of his season.

News: McLouth believes his shoulder will return to 100 percent over the next few weeks, Mark Zuckerman of Nats Insider reports.
Impact: McLouth was placed on the disabled list in early August, and missed the remainder of the season due to the shoulder issue. He is apparently beginning to return to form, but has a few hills to climb with endurance and volume, which will likely come in the next few weeks when he ups his baseball regimen. McLouth is expected to serve as a backup for all three of the Nats' starting outfielders in 2015 assuming he performs.
