    • The Angels hope Pujols can play first base two days a week in 2018 in order to get Shohei Ohtani starts at designated hitter, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports. He reportedly feels great and has shed a walking boot that he was wearing earlier this winter. Even so, Pujols is unlikely to be even average defensively at first base at this stage in his career, but the Angels need to get creative in order to get Ohtani's bat in the lineup when he is not pitching. Pujols is coming off by far the worst offensive season of his career, hitting .241/.286/.386 with 23 home runs in 636 plate appearances. He played just six games at first base last season, but it sounds like he is on track to regain eligibility there in most formats.

    • Angels' Albert Pujols: Provides unexpected steal
      By RotoWire Staff

      Pujols went 2-for-4 with a double, a stolen base and a run scored in Friday's 6-5 win over the Mariners. Fantasy owners may have done a double take when they saw a stolen base attached to Pujols' stat line. The 37-year-old has actually chipped in three steals this season, which is impressive considering he owns the 14th-worst speed score (2.1 SpD) among all qualified batters, according to fangraphs.com. The unexpected thievery was a cherry on top of a renaissance month at the plate for Pujols, who is hitting .305 with two home runs and 17 RBI through 25 September starts.

      Pujols went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Indians. Pujols continues his September swoon, batting .323 with two homers and 14 RBI through 16 games. It has been an up-and-down season for the aging slugger, but his recent hot streak has given him fantasy value down the stretch.

    • Angels' Albert Pujols: Goes yard Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Pujols went 1-for-3 with a walk and his 22nd home run of the season in Thursday's 5-2 loss to the Astros. While this was the veteran slugger's first homer of the month, he has maintained his hot-hitting ways since returning from a minor knee injury Sept. 8. Pujols is batting .419 (18-for-43) with 13 RBI through 11 September starts, numbers that should help fantasy owners in almost any format down the stretch.

      By RotoWire Staff

      Pujols (knee) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Mariners. Pujols received a lubricating injection during Thursday's off day, and looks to be ready to go for Friday's series opener following a couple days of rest. The 37-year-old will bat fourth and hit out of the DH spot against Mike Leake. Over his past six games, Pujols has gone 13-for-26 with a pair of home runs and 14 RBI.
