Angels' Albert Pujols: Sitting out series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rangers.

The 40-year-old is just receiving a routine rest for the day game after a night game. Tommy La Stella will step in at first base as a replacement for Pujols, who is slashing .186/.255/.419 through 11 games.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Two hits in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 2-for-4 in Saturday's 2-0 loss to the Rangers.

The Angels only managed four hits in total, so the 40-year-old's first multi-hit performance since July 28 went to waste. Pujols is hitting only .186 (8-for-43) through 11 games, but his three homers and seven RBI have given him some fantasy value in deeper formats.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Gets breather
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mariners.

Pujols will head to the bench following a string of four straight starts during which he went 2-for-16 with a pair of home runs and six RBI. Tommy La Stella is covering first base in Thursday's series finale.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Homers in second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

Three of Pujols' last four hits have left the yard, but this one had significance -- it was the slugger's 659th career homer, and he is now one shy of tying Willie Mays for fifth on the all-time homer list. Pujols also has 2,082 career RBIs, which is fourth all-time behind Hank Aaron (2,297), Babe Ruth (2,214) and Alex Rodriguez (2,086).

Angels' Albert Pujols: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols will not start Friday's game against the Astros, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Pujols sits for the third time in the season's first eight games, with Tommy La Stella sliding to first base and Luis Rengifo starting at second. Pujols has shown no signs of reversing his long decline in the early going this season, going 3-for-20 at the plate.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Retreats to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols is not starting Wednesday against the Mariners, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Career homer No. 657
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 2-for-4 with a walk, a home run and an additional run scored in Tuesday's 10-2 win over the Mariners.

After a 1-for-12 start to the season, the 20-year veteran got to a pair of lefties for hits; he singled off Justus Sheffield in the fourth and then homered off Nestor Cortes an inning later. Pujols hit cleanup against the first southpaw the Angels faced this season, but he was down in the six hole Tuesday. That's where he's been against righties early on after mostly batting 4-5 in the order last season.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Angels' Albert Pujols: Goes deep Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's exhibition contest against the Dodgers.

Pujols had been relatively quiet in spring training and summer exhibition contests until he homered off Jake McGee in the seventh inning Tuesday. That's not much of a concern for the 40-year-old as he heads into his ninth season with the Angels as the team's primary first-baseman.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Quiet in Cactus League play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols batted .200 (4-for-20) with two RBI and three strikeouts in nine spring contests.

The 40-year-old's nondescript spring was a stark contrast to his play in Cactus League contests in 2019, when he hit .326 with a trio of long balls. Of course, Pujols hit only .244 during the regular season last year, emphasizing the relative insignificance of spring stats, particularly among veterans. Pujols is expected to be the Angels' primary first baseman again in 2020, which will be his ninth season with Los Angeles.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Drives in 93rd run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 1-for-3 with an RBI in Tuesday's win over the Athletics.

Pujols singled in the fourth inning and plated what turned out to be the deciding run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth. Though it will require a significant effort over the Angels' final five games, Pujols has an outside shot of driving in 100 runs for the 15th time in his career. The 39-year-old currently sits at 93 RBI along with 23 homers and a .249 average in his 19th season in the league.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Leaves game with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols left Thursday's game with an illness, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.

Apparently Pujols was under the weather when he showed up to the ballpark, and while he was able to play through it for most of the afternoon, it got worse during the game, per manager Brad Ausmus. Pujols went 1-for-4 before being replaced at first base by Jared Walsh in the eighth inning. The Angels travel to Chicago for a three-game set against the White Sox this weekend.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Moves into 14th place on hits list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

Pujols belted a ground rule double to left field in the third inning to plate the Angels' first run. The hit was the 3,185th of his career, moving him past Cal Ripken Jr. into sole possession of 14th place on the all-time list. The 39-year-old got off to a slow start this season but has improved his batting average each month, including a strong August in which he hit .302 with three homers and 20 runs batted in.
