News: Pujols is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the A's, Mike DiGiovanna of the LA Times reports.

News: Pujols was removed from Wednesday's game against the Marlins due to feeling "a little tight," but he is expected to play Thursday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports. Impact: Manager Mike Scioscia said that Pujols got a bit tight after fouling a pitch off his calf earlier in the game, which led to his removal for a pinch-runner in the bottom of the seventh. It sounds like the move was precautionary in nature, but there may be a bit more concern for someone like Pujols, who has dealt with minor ailments at various times this season.(RotoWire, )
