Pittsburgh is on the hook for his entire $1.75 million salary, so Baltimore is merely adding some Triple-A outfield depth and will hope McLouth can show some signs of life for the first time since 2009.
He’s still just 30 years old, but McLouth has hit .203 with a .624 OPS in 200 games since the beginning of 2010 and looked completely lost as a part-timer for the Pirates this season.
In addition to McLouth the Triple-A Norfolk lineup also now includes Miguel Tejada, Lew Ford, Bill Hall, and a rehabbing Brian Roberts, so they’d definitely have to be considered International League favorites for 2006.
