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).
