Description: Angels first baseman Albert Pujols is a career .438 hitter (7-for-16) with three home runs against Oakland right-hander Jeff Samardzija.
Insight: Pujols has rebounded nicely in 2014 to bat .275 with 27 HR and 101 RBI. He's no longer "superstar Albert Pujols," but he's still pretty good.
 
9/21/2014 9:01:00 AM
Description: Angels first baseman Albert Pujols had a big night to get to the 100 RBI plateau, on Saturday.
Insight: Although his second half of the season (.268 BA, 7 HR, 36 RBI) has not been as good as the first half (.279BA, 20 HR, 64 RBI), Pujols has rebounded nicely in 2014. While he will never be the player he once was, Pujols is still a major threat at the plate, and will continue to be over the next couple of seasons.
 
9/16/2014 6:04:00 PM
Description: Angels first baseman Albert Pujols left last night's game with a left hamstring cramp. UPDATE: Pujols is in the Angels lineup Tuesday.
Insight: He had a bases-clearing double in the third inning, but seemed to come up lame on his way to second base. The news coming out of Los Angeles is that they are calling it just a cramp, which would be great news. Consider Pujols day-to-day.

9/5/2014 11:40:00 AM

Insight: In 22 career at-bats, Pujols is batting .545 with three homers and 10 RBI. he's batting .271 with 24 HR and 83 RBI this season. Nice numbers, but hardly the Pujols we remember from years past.

Description: Angels first baseman Albert Pujols left Wednesday's game after fouling a ball of his calf, but is probable for Thursday's game against Oakland.
Insight: Pujols went 4-for-11 in the three-game series with Miami, but without an extra-base hit. Both the Angels and fantasy owners need him to provide more power.

7/18/2014 12:28:00 PM
Description: Angels first baseman Albert Pujols is 2-for-19 (.105) against Seattle right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma.

Insight: He hit just two home runs in June after putting up 14 in the first two months of the season. Pujols has a career-low fly-ball rate and a career-high infield fly-ball rate, so he's batting just .244 on balls in play and .259 overall.
 
7/1/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: Angels 1B Albert Pujols is probable for Tuesday's game against the Chicago White Sox with a groin injury, but its an unfavorable matchup which fantasy owners should avoid.
Insight: Considering he's just 1-for-9 against Tuesday's first game starter. Hector Noesi, he could easily sit this one out. Fantasy owners can't start him anyway based on this unfavorable matchup.
 
6/30/2014 5:05:00 PM
Description: Angels 1B Albert Pujols was questionable for Monday's game against the Chicago White Sox with a groin injury, but is in the starting lineup.
Insight: Considering he's just 1-for-9 against Monday's starter. Hector Noesi, he could have easily sat this one out. Fantasy owners can't start him anyway based on this unfavorable matchup.
 
6/30/2014 10:10:00 AM
Description: Angels 1B Albert Pujols is questionable for Monday's game against the Chicago White Sox with a groin injury.
Insight: Considering he's just 1-for-9 against Monday's starter. Hector Noesi, he'll probably sit this one out. Fantasy owners can't start him anyway based on this unfavorable matchup.
 
6/27/2014 11:15:00 AM
Description: Angels 1B Albert Pujols is a career .316 hitter with four extra-base hits against Royals starter Jason Vargas.
Insight: We're excited about Pujols on Friday because he's in a good matchup and the wind in Kansas City will be blowing out to left field at 15-20 mph. That's a favorable combination.
 
6/26/2014 9:47:00 PM
Description: Angels 1B Albert Pujols belted three hits in Thursday's win over Minnesota.
Insight: Even with five hits in his last nine at bats, Pujols is still hitting just .262 with a .795 OPS. Pujols continues to be useful in fantasy but he's no longer a first-round value.
 
6/26/2014 9:23:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles first baseman Albert Pujols is a career .526 hitter (10-for-19) with four doubles and three home runs against Minnesota starter Ricky Nolasco.
Insight: After a productive April, Pujols has failed to help fantasy owners in May and June. Pujols is batting .250 for the month and hit just two homers in 20 games. He's been dealing with a tight back of late, but we expect much more from the future Hall of Fame first baseman.
 
6/21/2014 7:00:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles first baseman Albert Pujols will take a seat Saturday versus Texas. SOURCE: Alden Gonzalez, MLB.com
