Pujols knocked in four runs as part of a 3-for-5 game in Monday's win over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols's power stroke has yet to show up like it has throughout his career, and Monday's performance didn't change that -- all three hits were singles, and his slugging percentage sits at a mere .438. But at least he's driving in runs. Pujols now has four games this month with at least four RBI, and he now has 26 RBI in just 20 games in July. With 76 RBI already, he should have little trouble completing his 13th season with 100 RBI.

Pujols hit a pair of homers and knocked in six runs in a 3-for-3 game Tuesday in a win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols is on an absolute tear, with four home runs over his past three games. He also now has three games with four RBI or more this month. His current .447 slugging percentage would still be the worst mark of his illustrious career, but he's starting to show that old pop hasn't completely left his bat yet.

Pujols went 2-for-4 with two homers, a walk, two runs and four RBI Sunday against the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

Both of Pujols' bombs came with a man on base, and after hitting his second round-tripper of the contest, the Angels were leading 4-1 in a game they'd win easily. He now has just three homers since June 26, and he's slugging .429 on the season.

Pujols went 2-for-5 with a homer, a double and five RBI in a 21-run drubbing of the Red Sox on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols got the scoring started with a two-run shot off Clay Buchholz in the first inning, and added a two-run double off Pat Light in the seventh. The aging slugger appears to be picking up steam heading into the All-Star break, having notched 14 hits (including three doubles and three homers) in his last eight games. He is on pace to finish the year with 30 home runs and 110 RBI.

Pujols went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Athletics on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols owners likely came into the season willing to sacrifice batting average for home runs, but they likely weren't expecting a slugging percentage below .400 towards the end of June. The 37-year-old is still on pace for 28 homers and 103 RBI, and While those numbers have their place on most rosters, the lack of production in nearly every other category makes Pujols a tough own outside outside of deep leagues.

Pujols (hamstring) is back in the lineup for Thursday's game against the A's.

EDGE Analysis

Hamstring and ankle injuries kept Pujols out of the lineup for the last two games, but the veteran slugger is now healthy enough to at least stand in for at-bats as he'll serve as the DH on Thursday. Pujols will hit fourth in the order against Kendall Graveman, a pitcher he's gone 5-for-10 lifetime against with a home run and two RBI.

Pujols (hamstring) is out of the lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger is battling through some lingering hamstring and ankle soreness, and although he got the day off Tuesday, manager Mike Scioscia has opted to give him another day of rest. C.J. Cron will take over at first base while Mike Trout fills in at DH for Wednesday's game against the Astros. Pujols' next chance to return to the lineup will come Thursday when the Angels open a series against the A's.

Pujols is dealing with hamstring and ankle soreness, MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

He revealed that he's been dealing with left ankle soreness for three weeks -- the result of rolling the ankle while stretching to make play at first base in an interleague series -- and Pujols' left hamstring became an issue over the weekend. The 36-year-old has not been producing like we've come to expect this season, but at 31-39, the Angels simply cannot afford to give Pujols an extended rest to get right. Expect him back in the lineup in short order.

Pujols is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols will get an unusual day of rest while Jefry Marte picks up the start, batting sixth as the designated hitter against right-handed starter Colin McHugh. The 36-year old Pujols has struggled a bit in 2016, hitting far below his .310 career batting average with a .234 batting average this season.

Pujols went 2-for-5 with an RBI and two runs in Wednesday's 10-2 victory over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger generated his fourth multi-hit effort of June, while also driving in his seventh run of the month. Like several other teammates, Pujols began the season in a prolonged slump, but has progressively improved his performance at the plate. Hitting below the Mendoza Line as recently as May 15, Pujols has raised his average 35 points over the last month to .232, although that number still represents a whopping 78-point difference from his career .310 figure. The 36-year-old has continued to be productive from a power and RBI standpoint however, as he's generated 12 round-trippers and driven in 43 runs this season despite his struggles.
