News: McLouth (shoulder) will undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder, CSN Washington reports. Impact: It's a rough end to the season for McLouth, who has missed most of August with the shoulder injury. He had an MRI on Monday that revealed the tear and will face a lengthy recovery process after undergoing surgery. The Nationals signed Nate Schierholtz to a minor-league deal Monday to add insurance to the outfield. The 32-year-old McLouth concludes the season batting .173 with seven RBI and 35 strikeouts in 139 at-bats.(RotoWire, )

News: McLouth (shoulder) is expected to be ready for spring training, Dan Kolko of MASNsports.com reports. Impact: McLouth is slated to undergo season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder Thursday, but manager Matt Williams expects him to be back at full health before position players report next spring. In the first year of a two-year pact with Washington, McLouth hit just .173/.280/.237 with one homer in 79 games. The team signed veteran Nate Schierholtz to a minor league deal Monday, and Schierholtz may take McLouth's role as a lefty bench bat come September.(RotoWire, )

News: McLouth (shoulder) has been slow to recover from treatment and underwent an enhanced MRI on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of CSNWashington.com reports. Impact: The Nationals hope Monday's examination will reveal a clearer timetable for McLouth's recovery, but expectations of a forthcoming return should probably be tempered at this point. The Nationals signed Nate Schierholtz to a minor league contract earlier in the day Monday, making him something of an insurance option for McLouth, given his standing as a left-handed hitting reserve outfielder.(RotoWire, )

News: McLouth will receive a second opinion on his ailing shoulder, Mark Zuckerman of CSNwashington.com reports. Impact: McLouth's shoulder is simply not responding to treatment as expected, so the Nats will send him for another opinion. He still has not resumed baseball activities and an estimated return timetable likely won't be established until he's cleared to do so.(RotoWire, )

News: McLouth (shoulder) still has not resumed baseball activities, the Washington Post reports. Impact: Manager Matt Williams said McLouth is still in the strengthening phase of his rehabilitation, effectively ruling out a return from the DL on Sunday when first eligible. The team has been adamant that McLouth's injury is not serious, but at this point, he's not looking like a lock to make it back before the end of the month.(RotoWire, )

News: McLouth is out for the season because of an injured right shoulder. Impact: Manager Matt Williams said Tuesday that McLouth will have surgery Thursday for a torn labrum and is expected to recover in time for spring training. Williams says McLouth has had discomfort in his throwing shoulder all season. The symptoms worsened after he dove for a ball in Miami in late July. McLouth last played Aug. 1 and is on the 15-day disabled list.(STATS, 1:34am)
