    Nationals' Nate McLouth 'in jeopardy' of missing opener

    Nationals manager Matt Williams told reporters that outfielder Nate McLouth's availability for Washington's season-opener is "in jeopardy," according to the Washington Post. "Right now, it's probably in jeopardy because we haven't been able to get him out there for a number of at-bats and get through a full spring, keeping in mind that he's coming off of a pretty serious surgery," Williams said, per MASN Sports. "So it's a little in jeopardy right now, but we'll continue to work him as if we were trying to get him ready depending on how he feels. We're looking at 15 days from now and him just starting his spring training, you would say he may not be ready in time." McLouth underwent shoulder surgery back in August, and has yet to take part in a Grapefruit League game. Williams added that McLouth's shoulder still bothers him when he throws. He is not considered to be in for a long rehab process, per the report.
