WASHINGTON — Braves outfielder Nate McLouth has been optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett, and outfielder Brent Clevlen has been activated off the 15-day disabled list.

The Braves also announced Tuesday that they have agreed to a two-year contract extension with backup catcher David Ross.

McLouth is hitting .168 with three homers and 14 RBIs this season. Clevlen went on the DL in May with a sprained toe.

Ross is batting .269 with no homers and 18 RBIs heading into Atlanta's game at the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night. The 33-year-old is in his ninth major league season and has thrown out 37 percent of runners who've tried to steal on him.

He could have become a free agent at the end of this season.
