Angels' Pujols has minor surgery on right knee
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP)
The Angels on Thursday confirmed the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's report on the surgery, describing it as a minor cleanup procedure.
Pujols overcame a slow start to hit .285 with 30 homers and 105 RBIs in his first season with the Angels after leaving the Cardinals for a 10-year, $240 million deal as a free agent.
The three-time NL MVP strained his right calf in late August, and was limited on the basepaths and in the field for the rest of the season. Pujols largely was a designated hitter down the stretch, and his leg injury noticeably affected his baserunning.
