Nate McLouth


McLouth was put on the 15-day disabled list on Monday because of a sprained left ankle. McLouth was hitting .233 with seven homers and 16 RBIs in 55 games.


Mc Louth was held out of the starting lineup on Saturday because of a sore left ankle. The Pittsburgh Pirates outfielder suffered the injury on Friday, and the team hopes to have him back on Sunday.


McLouth has displaced fellow rookie Chris Duffy as Pittsburgh's starting center fielder. The two competed for the job this spring, but neither took control of it in April. McLouth has emerged with a .281 average and .395 on-base percentage in 12 games this month. For the season, he is batting .231 with a .310 OBP.


McLouth left Pittsburgh's Monday night game early because of a contusion to the right elbow after being hit by a pitch in the fourth inning. The injury to the rookie outfielder is not considered serious, but he will miss Tuesday night's showdown against the St. Louis Cardinals.


McLouth hit his first career home run on Tuesday night in the Pirates' 10-0 win over St. Louis. The 2-run shot came in the fourth inning off of Jason Marquis. The Pirates' outfielder finished the night 2-for-5 with 2 runs scored and 2 RBIs.


McLouth has been recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis by the Pittsburgh Pirates, filling the roster spot of the injured Jody Gerut. In 109 games with the minor league club this season, McLouth was batting .297 with five home runs and 39 RBI.


To open a spot on the roster for pitching prospect Zach Duke, the Pittsburgh Pirates have optioned McLouth back to Triple-A Indianapolis. The outfielder made his major league debut earlier this week and went 0-for-2 with a strikeout in his short stint with the Pirates.


McLouth has been recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis by the Pittsburgh Pirates, filling the roster spot of injured lefthander Oliver Perez, who is out with a broken left big toe. The outfielder has been solid for the minor league club this season, batting .306 with five home runs, 32 RBI and 23 stolen bases.
