Angels' Albert Pujols: Homers in first game back from break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's loss to the Rays.

The veteran slugger sandwiched the All-Star break with a pair of solo homers, bringing his season total up to 14. Pujols' value has been hampered by a .241 batting average, but he still can drive in runs (55 RBI) in the heart of the Angels order. The 37-year-old should continue to be a good source of RBI in the second half with the return of Mike Trout to the lineup.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Homers heading into All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 1-for-2 with a homer and two walks Sunday in Texas.

Pujols' 407-foot first-inning solo shot off Yu Darvish is all the offense the Angels needed in this 3-0 win. The 37-year-old Pujols is putting up career-lows across the board with his .241/.288/.387 line, but his 13 homers in 83 games show that the future Hall-of-Famer still can't be taken lightly. Two of those long balls have come in the past five contests after he went 14 without one.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Crushes solo homer in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 1-for-4 with a solo home run -- the 603rd of his career -- in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

The veteran slugger has been quiet since hitting his historic 600th homer June 3, slashing a meager .209/.246/.318 in 28 games. At 37 years old, a decline in production was to be expected, and we are seeing it happen to one of the game's greats before our very eyes. Outside of Pujols' ability to drive in runs effectively (51 RBI) and the occasional long ball (12 homers), he isn't providing enough to warrant consideration in standard fantasy formats, especially if he lacks first base eligibility.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Gets day off Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers.

The Angels are without a DH for the second straight game, giving Pujols a chance to get a rest day following his start at first base Monday. The 37-year-old has played in every game this month, despite posting an batting average of .208 during that stretch, so expect him back in the No. 3 hole when the team returns home Wednesday.

Angels' Albert Pujols: Swats 11th homer Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pujols went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a pair of runs in Saturday's win over the Royals.

The aging slugger has seen his production dip at the plate this season, slashing a career-worst .240/.287/.394 through 275 plate appearances. His placement in the heart of the Angels lineup has kept his fantasy value afloat with high RBI totals (48 RBI ranks 11th in the league), but his lack of a defensive position in most formats handcuffs his owners and limits their roster flexibility. Pujols still carries name value, but his declining skills at the plate make him a feast-or-famine fantasy option.
