MLB: LA Angels 1B Albert Pujols to Miss Rest of 2013 Season

Aug 19 2013, 10:21pm CDT | by

Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols will miss the remainder of the 2013 MLB season due to a foot injury.

MLB fans have seen the last of Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols for the 2013 season. 

Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times cites the reason for this as Pujols' partial tear of the plantar fasica in his left heel. The Angels slugger said sitting out the rest of the current season is best for him and the team

"I'm bummed out because I want to be out there with the guys, but I think it's a smart move. I can try to have a normal, healthy off-season and get ready for spring training." 

He also added the decision was anything but easy, according to MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez. 

"It wasn not an easy decision, as competitive of a player as I am. But I also wanted to look past this season." 

Angels manager Mike Scioscia affirms Pujols' doctors said it was the best thing to do. 

"The doctors think it's the best course of action. For Albert, everything would have to have been perfectly aligned for him to come back and play. I think by trying to get to that level, maybe there were some things that would have been at risk in setting the healing process back. I think that it's a decision that everyone can be at peace with and get everyone ready for next year." 

Pujols has been hampered by the sore heel all seson long before it finally gave out in Oakland on July 26 after he knocked a two-run single off Athletics closer Grant Balfour in the ninth inning. DiGiovanna estimates the minimum recovery time to be roughly six weeks. 

With his injury, Pujols was forced to be a designated hitter in 65 of the 99 games he appeared in 2013. 

As for Pujols' current state of health, Gonzalez points out the Angels slugger no longer wears the protective boot. He's also getting his workouts in, doing cardiovascular exercises along the way. 

Pujols had 101 hits for a .258 average to go along with 64 RBIs and 17 home runs before he was sidelined permanently for the 2013 MLB season.
