The Pittsburgh Pirates designated former All-Star outfielder Nate McLouth for assignment to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday.

McLouth, 30, was an All-Star and Gold Glove winner in 2008 when he batted .276 and had career highs in HR (26) and RBI (94). He was traded to Atlanta the next season.

McLouth signed a one-year deal in December to return to Pittsburgh, but is hitting .140 with no HR and two RBIs in 34 games this year.

Pittsburgh recalled infielder/outfielder Matt Hague, who is hitting .278 with 15 RBIs in 36 Triple-A games this season.
