The Pirates on Thursday requested waivers to give outfielder Nate McLouth his unconditional release. Unless another team takes him, he will become an unrestricted free agent.

McLouth was batting .140 (8 for 57) with two RBI in 34 games during his second stint with the Pirates when he was designated for assignment last week.

The Pirates drafted him in the 25th round in 2000, and he played for the team from 2005-09, when he was traded to the Atlanta Braves for right-hander Charlie Morton, lefty Jeff Locke and outfielder Gorkys Hernandez. He signed with the Pirates as a free agent Dec. 7.
