Sun, 10 Dec 2017 05:15:57 -0800

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim DH/1B Albert Pujols could see more time at first base during the 2018 season, especially on days when RHP/DH Shohei Ohtani is used as a designated hitter. Manager Mike Scioscia said Pujols is "full-blown into his winter workout" and will be capable of handling the physical demands of the position since he is in the middle of a surgery-free offseason for the first time in two years.
