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.

Pujols (hamstring) is in the lineup Tuesday against the Mariners.

Pujols grabbed at his left hamstring as he made his way to second base in the third inning of Monday's game, but the official diagnosis was just a cramp and he won't even miss a start as a result. The Angels will also get Josh Hamilton (shoulder) back, a day after becoming the first team to clinch a postseason birth.

Pujols suffered a left hamstring cramp in Monday's contest against the Mariners.

Pujols seemingly tweaked the hamstring after legging out a bases-clearing triple, but it sounds like dehydration is to blame here. The Angels surely dodged a bullet, as Pujols has been bothered by hamstring issues in the past, but he looks to have avoided any more serious complications, such as a strain. Manager Mike Scioscia may still hold him out of the lineup for a day or two as a precaution, but it sounds like the Angels aren't fearing the extended absence of one of their major offensive weapons as the playoffs approach.

Pujols' night turned sour in a matter of seconds Monday, as he hurt the hamstring while legging out a three-RBI double in the third inning. There is no word regarding the severity of the injury at this time, but the Angels certainly don't want to risk the health of one of their best hitters as they gear up for what will almost certainly be a playoff run.
