Angels | Albert Pujols in serious pain

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (foot) said he is in serious pain while dealing with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. "I'm dying," Pujols said. "It's hurting real bad." The team plans to use Pujols as the designated hitter for the time being as long as he can play through the pain. General manager Jerry Dipoto expects Pujols to recover over the course of the season.

Fantasy Tip: This is definitely troubling news for Pujols owners. He is a tough player, no doubt, but you have to wonder if this is the year that Pujols will finally succumb to an injury. A stint on the disabled list is very possible now. Make plans to back him up immediately in case this thing gets worse.
