Player Notes
Albert Pujols slugged his fourth home run of the season Saturday in the Angels' loss to the Giants.

Advice: The seventh-inning shot off Tim Hudson was Albert's only hit of the game. He sat out Thursday and Friday with a left hamstring injury but told reporters late Saturday that it's no longer bothering him. The 35-year-old is batting just .210/.289/.395 on the young season, but he should be good for 25-plus dingers if he can stay mostly healthy.

Albert Pujols (hamstring) has returned to the Angels starting lineup on Saturday.

Advice: He's slotted in his regular third slot in the Angels lineup and will play first base. Before he sustained the injury, the veteran slugger was hitting just .208/.291/.364 with three homers and nine RBI in 21 games.

Albert Pujols said Thursday that his left hamstring was feeling better and that he's hopeful of playing Saturday or Sunday in San Francisco.

Advice: The Angels are likely to take things cautiously with their veteran slugger, so while he could appear as a pinch-hitter over the weekend, it would be surprising to see him return to the lineup so quickly.

Albert Pujols told reporters Thursday morning that his left hamstring feels "OK."

Advice: But he is not in the Angels' lineup Thursday afternoon in Oakland and he probably won't get any starts during the team's weekend series in San Francisco, where there will be no option to DH him. Pujols pulled up lame on a base hit in the sixth inning Wednesday night and had to limp off the field, but he believes it was just a hamstring cramp.

Albert Pujols is expected to avoid the disabled list after leaving Wednesday's game with hamstring tightness.

Advice: Pujols is set to miss at least a couple of games, though. C.J. Cron will start at first base unless the Angels decide to call up Efren Navarro. Collin Cowgill and Grant Green could get some extra at-bats. Pujols tweaked his hamstring Wednesday night on a sixth-inning single.

Albert Pujols left Wednesday's game against the Athletics with a potential left hamstring injury.

Advice: Pujols singled in the sixth inning but clutched his hamstring as he jogged to first base. The 35-year-old left the game but was moving fairly well, lending hope to the idea that it's a mostly precautionary measure. The Angels should give an update shortly.
