WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Nationals outfielder Nate McLouth will miss the remainder of the season with a torn labrum, the club announced Tuesday afternoon.

McLouth, 32, has been on the disabled list since early August, and will undergo surgery Thursday to repair the injured right shoulder.

While it’s unclear who will replace him on the roster the rest of the season, the Nationals agreed to a minor league deal Monday with veteran outfielder Nate Schierholtz, who has since been assigned to Triple-A Syracuse.

The Nationals have called up rookies Steven Souza Jr. and Michael Taylor in McLouth’s absence in recent weeks.

McLouth appeared in 79 games for the Nats this season, mostly off the bench, hitting .173/.280/.517 with 1 home run, 7 RBI and 4 stolen bases.

After signing a multi-year deal with the Nationals in the offseason, McLouth is expected to recover fully in time for spring training in 2015.
