1B Pujols joining OF Trout as AL starters in All-Star Game

Albert Pujols is All-Star Game bound.

The first baseman will join teammate Mike Trout in Cincinnati as the starting first baseman for the American League during next week’s All-Star Game on FOX, the league announced on Monday.

Pujols replaced injured Tigers star Miguel Cabrera.

Pujols, with 25 home runs and 53 RBI through the first half of the season, will make his 10th ASG appearance — but his first in an Angels uniform.

Trout, the reigning ASG and AL Most Valuable player, was voted a starting outfielder for the AL on Sunday. It’s Trout’s fourth-career All-Star Game and third-career start.

Congratulations to Albert Pujols on being named to his 10th All-Star team and first as an Angel!
