Pujols went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and a strikeout Thursday in a 2-0 win over Houston.

EDGE Analysis

The Angels are closing out an awful season, but that doesn't mean Albert Pujols is sitting around sulking. His two-run shot in the first inning was home run number 31 on the season and 591 for his career. It's proof that even at 36-years-old, the future Hall-of-Famer still has a lot of juice left in the tank and he remains a formidable fantasy asset. Since the All-Star break, he has topped his first half home run total with 16 and he is quickly closing in on matching the 60 runs he knocked in from April to June.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols has been on quite the power surge lately, as he's now homered eight times over his last 18 games, and he now has 29 bombs on the year. Over the course of his 16-year career, the only time he's failed to hit fewer than 28 homers was in 2013, when he played in only 99 games.

Pujols (foot) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Mariners, Angels VP of Comm. Tim Mead reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols has been playing through plantar fasciitis in his right foot and was held out of Wednesday's lineup, but that gave him two days to rest up with a team off day Thursday, and he will be back in action Friday night. Pujols will serve as the designated hitter and hit cleanup in the Angels' batting order.

Pujols has been playing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Pujols has been playing with a hurt foot, it hasn't seemed to influence his production at the plate. Over the last 14 games, Pujols is hitting .368/.367/.667 with five home runs and 14 RBI. The Angels have no intentions of putting Pujols on the disabled list, as they expect he'll be able to continue being their DH despite the ailment. However, it may be possible that he'll have more days off to avoid further aggravating the injury.

Pujols went 2-for-4 with a homer, two runs and two RBI in Monday's 9-2 win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols was in the on-deck circle when Mike Trout tied him for the team lead with 25 home runs, and responded immediately by launching one into the seats himself. The 36-year-old first baseman has declined from his incredible prime, but still looks to be on pace for a 14th 30-homer season in 16 major league campaigns. He has picked up the pace of late with four long balls in the last nine games.

Pujols went 1-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran slugger was one of the few to break through against Justin Verlander, who was mostly in vintage form Friday. Pujols took the former Cy Young winner deep in the first with a 388-foot solo shot, his third round-tripper in the last six games. With another prolific tally in August, Pujols now has over half (51) of his 101-RBI total for 2016 since July 2.

Pujols went 4-for-4 with a double, a home run, and three RBI in the Angels' 8-2 win in Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols exploded out of an 11-for-58 slump Wednesday with his first four-hit game of the season. Pujols has hit for impressive power in 2016, the home run his 24th and the three RBI bringing his total to 99. The 99 RBI is fourth most in the MLB, and his 1797 career RBI are the most among players currently on an MLB roster. While his batting average is down at .257, his 62 strikeouts aren't exactly indicative of selling out for power.
