News: Pujols (hamstring) is in the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners. Impact: Pujols grabbed at his left hamstring as he made his way to second base in the third inning of Monday's game, but the official diagnosis was just a cramp and he won't even miss a start as a result. The Angels will also get Josh Hamilton (shoulder) back, a day after becoming the first team to clinch a postseason birth.(RotoWire, )

News: Pujols has left the Los Angeles Angels' game against Seattle due to a cramp in his left hamstring while running out a bases-clearing double. Pujols left in the third inning Monday night after his three-run drive down the left-field line. The three-time NL MVP held the back of his left leg as he slowly jogged to second base while Mike Trout slid under the cutoff man's throw at home. Impact: Pujols has 97 RBIs this season. His three-run double tied him with Mike Schmidt for 35th place in baseball history with 1,595 RBIs.(STATS, 11:33pm)

News: Pujols suffered a left hamstring cramp in Monday's contest against the Mariners. Impact: Pujols seemingly tweaked the hamstring after legging out a bases-clearing triple, but it sounds like dehydration is to blame here. The Angels surely dodged a bullet, as Pujols has been bothered by hamstring issues in the past, but he looks to have avoided any more serious complications, such as a strain. Manager Mike Scioscia may still hold him out of the lineup for a day or two as a precaution, but it sounds like the Angels aren't fearing the extended absence of one of their major offensive weapons as the playoffs approach.(RotoWire, )

News: Pujols left Monday's game against the Mariners with what appeared to be a hamstring injury, according to Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports. Impact: Pujols' night turned sour in a matter of seconds Monday, as he hurt the hamstring while legging out a three-RBI double in the third inning. There is no word regarding the severity of the injury at this time, but the Angels likely don't want to risk the health of one of their best hitters as they gear up for what will almost certainly be a playoff run, which could have factored into his removal from the contest.(RotoWire, )
