Angels | Albert Pujols battling plantar fascitis

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (foot) started his fourth consecutive game at designated hitter Sunday, April 21, against the Detroit Tigers, because he is battling plantar fascitis in his left foot.

Fantasy Tip: Pujols is expected to resume playing first base later this season, although the team is unsure when that will happen. He plans to continue playing through the injury until he can no longer tolerate the pain. However, the most effective form of treatment would be to stay off the foot, which would mean spending time on the disabled list to allow the inflammation to subside.
