Albert Pujols Placed on Disabled List With Left Foot Injury

Albert Pujols has been placed on the disabled list for a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot.

Manager Mike Scioscia said the Los Angeles Angels slugger will be out for “a significant amount of time.”

“This is something that, talking to Albert, has been going on for six or seven years,” Scioscia said. “It’s been going on for a long time and he’s managed it. This is a big blow to our team right now.”

Pujols left the team in Oakland and returned to Los Angeles after aggravating the foot injury in a game against the Athletes on Friday. The All-Star player was examined, and the injury was identified.

“We’ll just take it one step at a time and see how it goes,” Scioscia said. “But this is not something that’s going to heal in a week or two. After that we’ll just wait and get direction from our medical department and how Albert feels. It’s a significant amount of time, that’s what it’s going to take.”
