Pujols Could Be Lost For Year

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) – Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols has gone on the disabled list with a foot injury that could end his season.

The Angels put Pujols on the 15-day DL on Sunday. Manager Mike Scioscia says the star will be sidelined for “a significant amount of time.”

Pujols has a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot, an injury that has bothered him most of the season. He aggravated it while running out a single in the ninth inning of Friday’s 6-4 loss to Oakland.

Scioscia didn’t rule out the possibility that the Angels’ designated hitter could be sidelined for the rest of the year. Pujols is hitting .258 with 17 home runs and 64 RBIs.

The Angels are 48-54, 12 games behind the Athletics in the AL West.

Outfielder Kole Calhoun was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake.
