Outfielder Nate McLouth has reached agreement with the Pittsburgh Pirates on a three-year contract that includes a team option for 2012.

The agreement was struck several hours before the scheduled

McLouth hit .276 last season with 26 home runs and 94 RBIs. He
was on the NL All-Star team and won a Gold Glove in center field.
