    • Pujols went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a pair of runs in Saturday's win over the Royals. The aging slugger has seen his production dip at the plate this season, slashing a career-worst .240/.287/.394 through 275 plate appearances. His placement in the heart of the Angels lineup has kept his fantasy value afloat with high RBI totals (48 RBI ranks 11th in the league), but his lack of a defensive position in most formats handcuffs his owners and limits their roster flexibility. Pujols still carries name value, but his declining skills at the plate make him a feast-or-famine fantasy option.

    • Angels' Albert Pujols: Hits solo shot
      By RotoWire Staff

      Pujols went 1-for-5 with a solo home run during Sunday's win over Houston. The veteran is morphing into even more of a feast-or-famine hitter of late and has just two multi-hit games through his past 18 outings for a .224/.280/.463 slash line. He's collected five homers and 13 RBI during that span, but his .686 OPS for the campaign is still well below the .783 mark he posted over the past four seasons. Father Time appears to be finally catching up to Pujols.

    • Pujols is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports. After smacking his 600th career home run on a grand slam Saturday, Pujols will be awarded a routine day off in the series finale. Luis Valbuena will serve as the Angels' designated hitter for the day, opening a spot in the lineup for C.J. Cron at first base.

    • Pujols went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 6-3 loss to Atlanta. The solo shot inched the 37-year-old closer to the historic 600-homer mark. His power (.395 slugging percentage) hasn't emerged yet this season, but he has been providing value to fantasy owners with 35 RBI. That said, Pujols could see a slight drop in run production with Mike Trout (thumb) being sidelined for 6-to-8 weeks.

    • Angels' Albert Pujols: Receives day off Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Pujols is out of the lineup Sunday against the Marlins. Pujols likely would be in the lineup for the series finale if the DH spot was available, but manager Mike Scioscia will give the former MVP a day off following back-to-back days in the field. Jefry Marte will check in at first base in place of Pujols.
