Pujols went 2-for-5 with two RBI and two runs Wednesday in a win over Texas.

It's been a slow start to the year for Albert -- although he raised his average 40 points, it's still only at .188. He does have a couple homers in the early going, and he's walked more than he's struck out, so it's a good belt that Pujols' stats will stabilize soon.

Pujols went 2-for-3 with a home run and a double in a loss to the Royals on Sunday.

Pujols has just four hits in 22 at-bat to begin the season, but has yet to record a single, leaving us with an odd-looking .182/.250./545 slash line through six games. As long as he is showing power, owners probably shouldn't be concerned, as the most important thing is that he feels good at the plate after dealing with several nagging injuries last season.

Pujols went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in a win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Pujols, who is off to a bit of a slow start this season, logging two hits in his first 11 at-bats, moved into a three-way tie for 18th place in MLB history with the home run in the first inning. The 35-year-old will likely continue through his decline phase, but owners with realistic expectations will likely be happy with the 30/100 potential he can still offer in a healthy year.

Pujols went 1-for-4 with a double and a run in Tuesday's game against the Mariners.

This was his first hit through two games this season. He may find it difficult to do much Wednesday as the Angels close out their first series against Hisashi Iwakuma, who has held Pujols to a .185 average in 27 career plate appearances.

Pujols went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Cactus League game against the Cubs on Thursday.

Pujols has been on fire to begin the spring, tallying eight hits and four RBI in 17 at-bats. All of the hits have been singles, and he has yet to draw a walk, but it's nice to see Pujols comfortable in the box, as a slew of minor ailments last season appeared to sap his production after a dominant start. Pujols said in November that his knee would be fully healthy coming into camp for the first time in years, but the question will once again be whether his body can withstand the rigors of a full season. Pujols finished 2014 with 28 home runs and 105 RBI.

Pujols went 1-for-4 with a home run in a loss to the Royals in Game 3 of the ALDS on Sunday.

Pujols and Trout both managed solo shots Sunday, but it wasn't enough, and the team that ended the regular season with the best record in baseball fell to the Royals in three games. Pujols will enter the offseason looking to build on the 28 home runs and 105 RBI he tallied over 159 games in 2014.

Pujols went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in a win over the Rangers on Saturday.

Pujols may never get back to the player he was in his prime, as he is in danger of finishing with an OPS below .800 for the second consecutive year, but he has been able to put up counting stats in 2014. The 34-year-old now has 27 home runs and 100 RBI this season.
