Bucs, McLouth agreement nearly finalized

Free agent outfielder Nate McLouth has agreed to a one-year, $1.75 million deal with the Pirates. The contract is likely to be finalized and announced on Wednesday, after McLouth goes through a physical. The $1.75 million is all guaranteed money, though there may also be some incentives built into the deal.

For McLouth, a return to Pittsburgh will offer him the chance to get playing time and try to rebuild his value back up after a few dismal years in Atlanta. McLouth’s last full season with the Pirates was in 2008, when he was an All-Star and Gold Glove Award winner.

For the Pirates, the reunion gives the club an experienced fourth outfielder.
