Nate McLouth‘s return to the Pirates is complete, as Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review reports that his one-year deal is worth $1.75 million.

Cheap enough for a backup outfielder and the Pirates are obviously hoping McLouth will bounce back to where he was prior to their trading him to the Braves in mid-2009.

On the other hand his agent did well to secure a major-league deal for considerably more than the minimum salary considering McLouth hit just .210 with a .650 OPS during the past two seasons while missing lots of time with injuries.

    Typical Pirate signing. They’ve been using this tactic for 19 years-hope he has a rebound year then trade him for a low end pitching prospect. Same thing, same results.
