Nate McLouth‘s frustrating tenure with the Atlanta Braves may finally be over.

On the disabled list since July 29, McLouth underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia he had been playing through for most of the season.

However, Bowman also goes on to suggest that the team will likely prepare with the assumption that Nate will not be back with the team.

In the following slides, I’ll go over three different situations that may come as a result of McLouth’s time on the disabled list and how it will impact the team down the stretch.
