33-year old righty swinging 1B Albert Pujols has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 27th, due to a left plantar fascia problem. If he elects to have surgery (a distinct possibility), it will end his 2013 season. Pujols has played in 99 games for the Angels this year and he is 101 of 391 (.258 avg, .767 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 17 homers, 64 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Pujols has now played in 253 games in his first two years with the Angels and he is 274 of 998 (.275 avg, .823 OPS) with 134 runs scored, 47 homers, 169 RBIs and 9 stolen bases. 27-year old righty swinging Mark Trumbo will take over as the full-time 1B for the Angels now. He has played in 102 games for the Angels so far this year and he is 98 of 392 (.250 avg, .786 OPS) with 53 runs scored, 22 homers, 60 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. With the way Pujols was running this year, I’m surprised he gutted it out this long.
