    As you stare out the window this morning and see snow falling in the D.C. area, it’s difficult to believe they’ll be playing a real baseball game here in a mere 17 days. Believe it, though, because not even Mother Nature can get in the way of this. Baseball season has almost arrived. Which, in…

    VIERA, Fla. — All 70 players invited by the Nationals to big-league camp have reported, but at least one prominent regular won’t be able to participate entirely at Thursday’s first full-squad workout of the spring. Jayson Werth, who had arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder January 9, will be held back from full participation for…

    VIERA, Fla. — Though his surgically repaired shoulder isn’t quite 100 percent yet, Nate McLouth firmly believes it will get there in the next few weeks once he ramps up his daily baseball regimen at spring training. “The thing I still have to work up to is the endurance, the volume,” he said. “I’ve been…

  5. McLouth confident about health, not about playing time

    Nate McLouth entered 2014 feeling as good about himself as he had in some time, for no shortage of reasons. He was healthy. He was coming off back-to-back strong seasons in Baltimore. And he had job security after signing a 2-year, $10.75 million deal with a good Nationals club. Fast-forward one year and the veteran…

  6. Revisiting last offseason’s major acquisitions

    USA Today Sports Images

    I read somewhere yesterday that 50 percent of the continental United States was covered by snow, the earliest date that has been the case in more than a decade. So it only makes sense that the Hot Stove League has fired up a bit earlier than usual this winter. Three major transactions went down in…

    Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth had successful surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder on Thursday, effectively ending his 2014 season. Now, with five weeks left to go, the Nationals will look to fill the position he was expected to hold down with the playoffs in mind. Veteran Nate Schierholtz – who was…

    The 2014 season for Nate McLouth is now over, as the Nationals outfielder is set for surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder on Thursday. The 32-year-old has been out since Aug. 1 when he initially complained of discomfort. That was four days after the veteran landed on his shoulder while attempting…

  10. Werth close; 2nd opinion for McLouth

    The Nationals’ banged up outfield got some good news and some bad news in terms of guys recovering from injuries on Friday. First, the good news: Jayson Werth – who is dealing with AC joint inflammation in his right shoulder – looks on track for a Sunday return when the Nats close out their series against…

  11. Taylor shines in MLB debut

    The legend of Nats prospect Michael Taylor has developed strongly over the last few months. First it was his defense everyone raved about as the lanky, 6-foot-3 outfielder was a standout during his short time in spring training. Then he hit .319 with 14 home runs and 40 RBI through two months at Double-A Harrisburg. Fast…

  12. Update: McLouth to DL, Souza called up

    Aug 4, 2014, 6:34 PM EDT

    AP

    [Updated: 6:34 p.m.] With Nate McLouth battling right shoulder inflammation, the Nationals placed the veteran outfielder on the 15-day disabled list Monday and called up Triple-A standout Steven Souza, Jr. as the corresponding move. McLouth’s disabled list stint is retroactive to Aug. 2. The 32-year-old has struggled this season with a .179 average and .517…

  13. Depleted lineup comes up short in 3-0 loss

    Jul 29, 2014, 11:55 PM EDT

    AP

    MIAMI — When healthy, the Nationals lineup is something to behold, an 8-deep consortium of power, patience and potency that proved to be as effective an offensive group as there is in baseball. But the moment one key guy goes down — or even worse, when two key guys go down as was the case…

  14. Nats trying to solve pinch-hitting woes

    Jul 20, 2014, 12:53 PM EDT

    USA Today Sports Images

    There are few jobs in baseball tougher to master than pinch-hitting, so any evaluation of a player or a team’s performance in that realm has to be taken with a grain of salt. But facts are facts, and right now, Nationals pinch-hitters are among the worst in baseball. Collectively, they are hitting .153 as pinch-hitters,…

  15. McLouth finally delivering for Nats

    Quick: Name the Nationals’ most-productive offensive player over the last 2 1/2 weeks. Ian Desmond? Nope. Adam LaRoche? Sorry. Nate McLouth? No chance. Wait, no, actually it is McLouth. Seriously. Over the Nationals’ last 15 games, McLouth leads the club with a .324 batting average, .419 on-base percentage and four stolen bases. OK, so that’s…

  18. With Harper out, Nats need McLouth to get on track

    Apr 28, 2014, 3:00 PM EDT

    AP

    We don’t know yet how long the Nationals will be without Bryce Harper, who is getting a second opinion today on his sprained left thumb. But whether Harper misses the minimum 15 days or significantly more, the Nats do know who needs to step up in his place: Nate McLouth. Signed in December to a…

  19. Nats happy with MLB’s fix of transfer rule

    Apr 25, 2014, 6:23 PM EDT

    AP

    After 3 1/2 weeks of controversial calls that left nearly everyone in baseball confused over what constituted a catch and what didn’t, Major League Baseball abruptly changed its interpretation of the so-called “transfer rule” on Friday, and members of the Nationals couldn’t be happier about it. “The longer it went on, and the more occasions…

  21. VIDEO: Bryce Harper enters 2014 a motivated man

    HarperssNI

    To say Nationals outfielder Bryce Harper is motivated for the 2014 season may be quite the understatement. After experiencing success in 2012 with a Nats team that won 98 games and the NL East, he still isn’t over falling short of a playoff berth last season. He’s back and hopes things go much differently this…

  22. McLouth eager for whatever role Nats have planned

    VIERA, Fla. — Nate McLouth had opportunities this winter to go somewhere he’d be assured of consistent playing time. Instead, the veteran chose to sign a two-year contract with a Nationals club that already boasts three well-established starting outfielders. “There were other options,” he said. “But I know that I liked this situation. It was…
