Joy R. Absalon-US PRESSWIRE

Former Pittsburgh Pirate Nate McLouth has come to terms on a one-year contract with the Baltimore Orioles.

The Baltimore Orioles have come to terms with free agent outfielder Nate McLouth, according to a report by Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com on Wednesday afternoon. The deal is reportedly for one year and is worth $2 million, in addition to $500,000 worth of incentive based bonuses.

McLouth started 2012 as a member of the Pittsburgh Pirates before being designated for assignment on May 31. In 34 games with Pittsburgh, McLouth accumulated a .140 batting average with two doubles, two RBI, five walks and 18 strikeouts in 62 plate appearances.

On June 5, he signed with the Orioles and spent the remainder of the season with the club. In 55 games with Baltimore, he registered an improved .268 batting average with seven home runs, 12 doubles, 22 walks and 43 strikeouts in 236 plate appearances. McLouth even emerged as a capable everyday left fielder and managed to act as the team's leadoff hitter.

It is expected that he will continue to act in those roles for Baltimore.
