Player Notes
Albert Pujols hit a broken-bat RBI single to help the Angels walk off winners in the bottom of the ninth against the Padres on Monday.

Advice: Padres closer Craig Kimbrel was trying to clean up Kevin Quackenbush's mess and walked Mike Trout to load the bases with two outs to face Pujols. Pujols broke his bat, but was strong enough to drive a grounder into left field for the walk-off hit. He finished 1-for-5 on the night. The veteran first baseman is batting a mediocre .228/.280/.420 with eight home runs and 17 RBI.

Albert Pujols (hand) is not in the Angels' starting lineup on Thursday night against the Blue Jays.

Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said Albert Pujols is "OK" and will be day to day with a bruised hand.

Advice: Dipoto added that there are no fractures or broken bones in Pujols' left hand or wrist. Pujols may sit out Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, but he should avoid a disabled list stint. He got struck with a Drew Hutchinson pitch on Wednesday night.

Albert Pujols underwent tests on his left hand and wrist Wednesday night.

Advice: The first baseman was hit by a Drew Hutchison pitch in the hand and wrist area during Wednesday's game, eventually necessitating his exit. The immediate diagnosis from the Angels was a left hand contusion, but that doesn't appear to be the end of the story. Reports had Pujols leaving the ballpark with a cast on his wrist. The results of Wednesday's tests, and Pujols' prognosis going forward, should be known Thursday.

Albert Pujols has been diagnosed with a left hand contusion.

Advice: It's a fortunate diagnosis, as it certainly seemed possible something was broken after he was hit by a Drew Hutchison pitch. It sounds like he'll only miss a day or two, but more should be known Thursday.
