Pujols (knee) isn't expected to be on the shelf for an extended period of time, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols received an injection in his left knee Friday, although manager Mike Sciosica stated it should be a short stint on the disabled list for Pujols. He'll be eligible to return shortly after the All-Star break.

Pujols was put on the 10-day disabled list due to left knee inflammation prior to Friday's game.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear as to when Pujols suffered this injury, as the 38-year-old went 3-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI during Thursday's victory over Seattle. Pujols will be eligible to return from the DL on July 23. In his place, look for Luis Valbuena to serve as the primary first baseman while David Fletcher mans the hot corner.

Pujols went 2-for-5 with a home run, double and two RBI in Tuesday's win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols connected for a two-run blast in the fourth inning off starter Mike Leake for his 14th home run of the season and second in as many days. At 38 years old, Pujols' days of hitting for average consistently are long gone, but he still figures to be a solid source of home runs and RBI over the second half of the season.

Pujols went 1-for-2 with a walk and his 13th home run of the season in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols' solo blast in the sixth inning tied the game at three, and Shohei Ohtani followed that up with a seventh-inning homer to seal the Freeway Series in favor of the Angels. The home run bumped Pujols' slugging percentage back over .400 on the season. The veteran slugger continues to be a solid source of pop and RBI production, despite carrying a pedestrian .245 batting average through 83 games.

Pujols went 2-for-3 with an RBI in Sunday's 8-2 loss to Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols displayed his situational hitting right off the bat Sunday, poking a two-out single in the first inning to cash in Kole Calhoun. The veteran slugger is batting .249 with 12 homers on the year, but his ability to make contact with runners on base has resulted in 45 RBI (10th among all first baseman).

Pujols is not in the lineup Saturday against Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran has continued to hang around with a barely playable bat this season. He's hit a respectable .254 with 12 homers, but his .288 on-base percentage is a problem for the Angels (if not for most fantasy owners). Mike Trout will be the designated hitter Saturday, with Jose Miguel Fernandez getting the nod at first base.

Pujols went 2-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 2-1 victory over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols has put together a modest six-game hit streak, homering twice and driving in five runs over that span. The majority of the 38-year-old's 71 hits this season have been either singles or homers. In fact, Pujols has more home runs (12) than doubles (11) for the fourth consecutive season, which is due in large part to the veteran's lack of speed in the twilight of his career. Fantasy owners won't find fault in that trend, as the slugger's value is heavily tied to his ability to leave the park and drive in runs (42 RBI through 69 games).

Pujols went 1-for-5 with his 12th home run of the season in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols homered for the second consecutive game, and now has five homers and 12 RBI in 14 June starts. The veteran is batting just .241 over that span, highlighting the low-average, plus-power production he has produced over the course of the season.

Pujols went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Sunday against the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols took Daniel Mengden deep in the sixth inning for his 11th home run of the season. He now has three home runs in his past eight games, also tacking on five runs scored and seven RBI in that span. His fantasy value is settling into a similar range as the past few seasons, a decent producer in home runs and RBI with sparing contributions in other areas.

Pujols went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols has gotten off to a strong start this month, going 9-for-31 with three homers and nine RBI in eight June starts. The veteran slugger has taken over primary designated hitter duties following Shohei Ohtani's (elbow) unfortunate injury last week. The position change theoretically could keep the 38-year-old fresher by not having to play the field everyday, but his fantasy value is still limited to two categories (homers and RBI) due to a middling batting average (.256) and non-existent speed (24 runs scored and zero steals).
