Angels' Albert Pujols: Cleared to swing off tee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albert Pujols has been cleared to hit off a tee, FOX Sports reports.

After removing the walking boot on his right foot in early January, Pujols will soon take another step in his recovery. The development doesn't change the expectation that the 36-year-old will reach full baseball activities by late March, which would likely equate to a DL trip to begin the season. Under that scenario, C.J. Cron would take a crack at regular DH duty until Pujols is ready to return.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Can ditch walking boot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pujols has been cleared to remove the walking boot on his right foot, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com reports.

In the midst of a lengthy recovery from November foot surgery, Pujols is taking an important step in the given 4-to-5 month rehab process. Clearly, the aforementioned timetable will place a damper on his availability in the 2016 Cactus League, with the potential that he won't be available for Opening Day. If he requires a DL stint to start the season, C.J. Cron remains the logical option to serve as the Angels' designated hitter.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Underwent foot surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albert Pujols underwent a surgical procedure on his foot recently, and is expected to return to full baseball activities in four to five months.

This procedure will keep the slugger out until mid-to-late March which will put his Opening Day status in question. Most signs are pointing to him not being ready for Opening Day, but it won't likely keep him out of the lineup for a long period of time. CJ Cron will be the expected fill-in until Pujols can return.

Angels' Albert Pujols crushes 39th homer in win over Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albert Pujols went 2 for 4 with a double, a homer and two runs scored Thursday in the Los Angeles Angels ' win against the Texas Rangers .

With three games left on the docket, Pujols just has to slug one more long ball to reach 40 for the seventh time in his career. It'll be interesting if he accomplishes that, as Pujols would likely achieve the rather bizarre feat of posting an OPS south of .800 despite the large power output. While his brutal second-half slump can assume some blame for that, it's well worth noting that Pujols has a major outlier of a BABIP at .213 -- his price will be deflated because of the poor average and his advancing age next year, but simply normalized batted-ball luck could turn him into a solid value.

Angels 1B Albert Pujols breaks out of long slump in nightcap of DH
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Angels first baseman Albert Pujols went 2 for 4 with a two-run double in Saturday's 5-2 victory over the Twins.

Pujols broke a career-high 0-25 slump with a fourth-inning single before plating Erick Aybar and Kole Calhoun with his sixth-inning two-bagger. The veteran superstar has considerably struggled at the plate after the All-Star break, and has only two homers since Aug. 25, a span of 24 games. The 35-year-old is also currently posting career lows in batting average, BABIP and OBP, yet has his highest total of homers since his final season with the Cardinals in 2011. The Angels and fantasy owners both have to hope that Saturday's performance is a harbinger of things to come for Pujols in the upcoming final key stretch of games.
