SAN DIEGO (AP) - Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia says Albert Pujols has told him he can play third base, if needed, in interleague play at National League parks and has taken grounders there.
“It’s a long way off. Not this series, obviously,” Scioscia said. “You always want to understand the versatility your team has and see if you can tap into it. Short-term, I don’t think a game or two would be a problem. It’s not something we’d want to take an extended look at, but we’ll see.”
Pujols has played 103 career games at third base since he came up with St. Louis in 2001, including seven last year, his final season with the Cardinals.
