Pujols leaves Angels to have foot examined

The SportsXchange

Los Angeles Angels first baseman/designated hitter Albert Pujols returned to Southern California on Saturday to have his ailing left foot examined.

He reinjured his foot during Friday night's loss to the Athletics at Oakland, and the Los Angeles Times said it appears the Angels slugger is headed for the disabled list.

He has suffered with plantar fasciitis in his left foot four roughly the last decade.

Pujols has appeared in all but two of the Angels' 101 games, but has played in the field in only 34 of those games.

Earlier this season, Pujols told the Times he was "dying" and that his foot was "hurting real bad."

The Angels' $200-million man has struggled this year, posting career lows in a number of statistical categories. He currently is batting .258, significantly lower than his previous low of .285. He also is on pace to hit 27 home runs, another career low.
