Pujols placed on DL

Mon., July 29, 2013

Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols was put on the disabled list Sunday with a tear in his left foot that could end his season. Manager Mike Scioscia said the star will be sidelined for “a significant amount of time.” Pujols has a partially torn plantar fascia, an injury that has bothered him most of the season. He aggravated it while running out a single in the ninth inning of Friday’s 6-4 loss to Oakland. “This is something that, talking to Albert, has been going on for six or seven years,” Scioscia said before the Angels’ game against Athletics. Although surgery seems unlikely, Scioscia didn’t rule out the possibility that Pujols could be sidelined for the rest of the year. Pujols left the team and returned to Los Angeles ofor additional testing. – AP
