Baltimore, MD (SportsNetwork.com) - Nate McLouth will have a new address next season, though it won't be far from his old one.

The former Baltimore Orioles outfielder has agreed to a two-year contract with the Washington Nationals, the Baltimore Sun reported on Friday. According to the paper, the deal is worth $10.75 million and contains an option for the 2016 season.

McLouth joins the Nationals off a pair of solid seasons with the Orioles. He batted .268 with seven home runs and 12 stolen bases in just 55 games in 2012, then swiped a career-best 30 bags while batting .258 with 12 homers and 36 RBI as Baltimore's primary left fielder last year.

The 32-year-old is expected to serve as a fourth outfielder with Washington, which looks to be set at those positions with Bryce Harper, Denard Span and Jayson Werth all returning.

McLouth is a nine-year veteran who owns a .250 lifetime average with 100 homers, 326 RBI and 129 steals over 515 career games with Pittsburgh, Atlanta and the Orioles. The left-handed hitter was a 2008 All-Star selection with the Pirates and led the league with 46 doubles while swatting 26 homers that year.
