Albert Pujols Injured-Taken Out of Sunday Night Game

New, comments

I am watching the Cardinals-Reds game tonight and just saw Albert Pujols get pulled from the game after slowing up running out a ground ball in the 7th inning.

The Cardinals moved Lance Berkman to first base and brought in John Jay to play right field.

It goes without saying that this injury bears watching for fantasy owners.


ESPN's Dan Schulman just reported Pujols experienced tightness in his right hamstring. It doesn't sound serious, so I think fantasy owners can rest comfortably tonight.

Update (8:52am):

From Joe Strauss from the St. Louis Post Dispatch:

TLR says no gimme putt that Albert is available Tue in Houston: "We're not going to push it." AP suffered mild L

hamstring strain Sun. nite.

It appears Albert could miss at least the Tuesday night game, and possibly a few more games this week,
