Angels' Albert Pujols: Drives in team-leading 18th run Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 1-for-3 with an RBI single and a run in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Athletics.

The veteran slugger opened the scoring on the night with a single to deep right that brought home Mike Trout, and he subsequently scored Los Angeles' second and final run on C.J. Cron's double later in the inning. Pujols' 18 RBI lead the Angels and also place him in a second-place tie with the Indians' Jose Ramirez behind Nelson Cruz in the AL. The 37-year-old extended his hitting streak to seven games with Thursday's production, and he's now knocked in seven runs overall during that stretch.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Drives in 17th run Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 2-for-5 with an RBI in Wednesday's 8-5 win over the Athletics.

The power still hasn't arrived for the veteran slugger (two home runs in 94 plate appearances), but he has raised his batting average to a respectable .247 after struggling out of the gates. Despite his lack of homers, Pujols has provided value to his fantasy owners with 17 RBI, which ranks second amongst all designated hitters and fifth among first basemen (which he may qualify in depending on league settings).

Angels' Albert Pujols: Blasts three-run homer Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols was the hero in Tuesday's win over the Astros, going 1-for-4 and blasting a three-run home run in a 5-2 win.

The aging slugger has struggled early on, slashing .204/.259/.333 even after his three-run blast Tuesday. A lower batting average was to be expected, but owners were hoping for a little more power from Pujols. It is still early, so the homers could be coming, but we shouldn't expect more than some pop and RBI production from the 37-year-old.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Takes seat Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols is not in the lineup Monday against the Astros.

After playing in all of the Angels' first thirteen games, Pujols will get a breather as Jefrey Marte slides in as the DH. He should be back in the lineup for Tuesday's matchup.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Makes first start at first Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols made his debut in the field Saturday, starting at first base and going 1-for-4 with an RBI in a 3-2 loss to Kansas City.

Manager Mike Scioscia wanted to give Mike Trout a "rest day" without removing him from the lineup, so he penciled his MVP at designated hitter and gave Pujols the start in the field defensively for the first time this season. Scioscia said that he planned on using his slugger almost exclusively in the DH spot this year, which could put his first base eligibility in jeopardy for next season. If Pujols could see a start at first once a week, then he may be able to hit the eligibility requirements to retain his first base status next year. That is a bridge we will cross when we get there. As for this season, the 37-year-old remains a solid power source while batting in the heart of the Angels' lineup.
