Albert Pujols (1B,DH)

Los Angeles Angels - 100% owned

Bats: R, Throws: R

Albert Pujols went 1-for-3 with a RBI-single and a walk against the Rangers on Saturday. He also scored a run in the game.

Fantasy Impact: Pujols was very productive on Saturday, a welcome sign for fantasy owners as he's had a rough start to the season. The three homers have helped mitigate the low batting average (.185 now), but the veteran needs to pick it up soon for fantasy owners to see a good return on their investment. Keep Pujols in your lineup for now except in the most shallow of mixed leagues.

Albert Pujols went 0-for-5 with two strike outs in yesterday's Angels 14-1 win. He was the only starter to not get a hit.

Fantasy Impact: Pujols has been ice cold to start off the season and is only hitting .192. He does have three home runs, but that has been his only upside. Pujols is not a hot pick to start at first base right now, but he is the machine and could turn it around at any moment.

Albert Pujols went 1-for-5 in yesterday's Angels win. His one hit was a first inning home run, and it was his 521st in his career. He is now tied for 18th all time with Ted Williams, Frank Thomas, and Willie McCovey.

Fantasy Impact: Pujols seems to be completely healthy this season, and his swing looks better than in years before. Pujols only has two hits so far this season, but both were for extra bases. Albert will be a nice provider of RBIs this season like always, especially with Mike Trout hitting in front of him.

Albert Pujols went 1-for-4 with a double in yesterday's Angels win. This was Pujols first hit of the season to go along with his two walks on Opening Day.

Fantasy Impact: Pujols regained his form last season, but was not the same as his days with the Cardinals. Pujols may never be that good again, but with a healthy season he can easily hit .280 with 30 HRs and 100 RBIs.

Albert Pujols went 2-for-3 with a RBI double and a 3-run HR against the Cubs on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Pujols is heating up in a big way as the regular season approaches, having hit a home run in four of his last six appearances. Pujols is still a 30+ HR threat, that will even steal a few bases for you, and his batting average might even see a bump up this year closer to the .280 range. Take him in the 4th/5th round in mixed leagues with confidence.

Albert Pujols went 1-for-3 with a HR against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Pujols has really started to heat up, hitting three home runs in his last five games. While he may not be the Albert Pujols of old, this is still a very reliable source of HRs and RBIs. Grab him in the fourth or fifth round in mixed leagues.

Albert Pujols had two hits on Thursday, including his first home run this spring during the first inning. He added another RBI with a line drive single in the second.

Fantasy Impact: Pujols is batting .357, with that HR being his only extra-base hit after playing 10 games. Albert's tater pace may be behind the 7 HRs he hit in Spring 2012, but fantasy players should be able to again depend on his situational hitting with 7 RBIs in 28 ABs and only 2 Ks thus far. With 1B so deep this season, the shrewd owner can stock up elsewhere and then grab Albert in the 4th round (per current ADP).
