Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols will need to get hot in the final week of the season if he hopes to eclipse 100 runs batted in for the 15th time in his career. Pujols is currently eight runs batted in shy and is slugging only .433 in the month of September. Pujols is a far cry from the player he used to be but still is a professional run-producer. The Angels season is over but Pujols carries some one-dimensional fantasy value as a power hitter in these remaining games.
Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Albert Pujols will start and hit cleanup Saturday against the Rays. The 39-year-old future Hall of Famer has cooled off lately, slugging only .385 over his last seven games. Pujols is clearly in the back-half of his career but has done a decent job as a run producer this season. He heads into Saturday's action with 85 runs batted in and is posting a .919 OPS with runners in scoring position this season. Pujols may have one more hot streak in him this season but fantasy owners will be rolling the dice.
Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols is out of the starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Indians. Pujols has been heating up at the plate over his last 10 games, hitting .293/.356/.585 with three home runs and nine RBI in that span. Jared Walsh will get the start at first in his place and bat seventh in the lineup.
