Angels' Albert Pujols: Will solely DH this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Mike Scioscia said that he has no plans to play Pujols -- who is coming off of foot surgery this past offseason -- at first base this spring, and that it will stay that way indefinitely, according to Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register.

Scioscia added that he felt comfortable with Pujols' defense if he needed to use him there in a pinch during the regular season. Luckily for most fantasy owners, the 37-year-old logged 28 games at first base last season, making him eligible for the position in most standard fantasy formats. For those that need him to make a start in the field to gain eligibility, it may be awhile before that day comes. From a fantasy perspective, serving as the team's full-time designated hitter bodes well for the aging superstar's health, and should keep him a viable fantasy option based on his ability to smack home runs and drive in runs while hitting behind Mike Trout this season.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Tests out foot Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 1-for-2 with a double, a walk and a pair of runs scored in Sunday's win over the Mariners.

The double was nice to see, but the main takeaway from Pujols' day was how he looked on the basepaths. The veteran slugger roped a double in his first at-bat, then had to scramble to third on an overthrow, eventually scoring on a wild pitch. Manager Mike Scioscia said that "[Pujols] is running better now than he did after foot started bothering him last year, and that's really a positive." These are encouraging things to hear after Pujols missed the first half of spring training rehabbing from offseason foot surgery. If he can make it through the rest of spring training without a setback, then we could be in line for another 30-homer, 100-RBI season from the future Hall of Famer.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Goes 0-for-2 in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols (foot) made his Cactus League debut Friday, going 0-for-2 with a walk as the Angels' designated hitter.

Pujols has come along slowly after offseason foot surgery. Now that he has made his return, the 37-year-old slugger will attempt to get up to game speed before the regular season kicks off. Barring any setbacks, Pujols will resume his role as the Halos' primary designated hitter. Age and health will keep his perceived value in a state of flux, but the future Hall of Famer has averaged over 30 homers and 100 RBI over his last three seasons, numbers that will help fantasy teams in almost any format if he can keep the trend going.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Making spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols (foot) is in the lineup Friday for the first time this spring, hitting third as the designated hitter in Cactus League action, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

The Halos will continue monitoring Pujols' progress after his December foot surgery, but his debut with a few weeks left in camp marks a positive step. The veteran still can turn a fantasy profit if he falls into the middle rounds of mixed drafts, though his price should rise if he mashes in spring games. Perhaps doubt over the 37-year-old's ability to play a full season will knock him down to the cost of a mixed league corner infielder, which would lower the burden of proof that he'll deliver on his annual potential for 30-plus home runs.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Hopes to get two at-bats Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Per manager Mike Scioscia, Pujols (foot) is scheduled to run the bases Wednesday and Thursday in preparation for his Cactus League debut Friday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

Scioscia also stated that he hopes the veteran slugger can log two at-bats in Friday's contest. Pujols' status for Opening Day still isn't completely clear, but if he can get through his first appearance without any issues, there's a decent chance that he could get ramped up enough in time for the season opener.
