Pujols went 3-for-4 with a double, three RBI and two runs scored in the Angels' 9-6 win against the Astros on Monday night.

EDGE Analysis

The future Hall of Famer came up clutch in an important game against the first-place Astros, knocking in three runs during the fourth and fifth innings. Pujols roped a double to right field in the fourth that plated Justin Upton and later singled in the fifth with the bases loaded, scoring two more. The veteran first baseman has sat out half of the team's games in July in part due to an undisclosed injury, but has played in the last three and has racked up five hits and seven RBI over that span.

Pujols is not starting Saturday against the Astros, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear if Saturday is simply a scheduled day off or if he's still dealing with the undisclosed minor injury that kept him out Wednesday and Thursday. Justin Bour will start at first base in his absence.

Pujols is out of the lineup again Thursday and is nursing a minor injury, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's not clear what exactly is ailing Pujols. He may just be banged up and dealing with general soreness, as a lot of baseball players are at this point in the year. Justin Bour is filling in once again at first base.

Pujols is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rangers, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols will give way to Justin Bour at first base against right-hander Ariel Jurado. The 39-year-old has been in a funk dating back to mid-June (.217/.250/.283 in his last 12 games), but his 94 wRC+ is his highest mark since 2016, and the Angels don't seem inclined to sit Pujols more than two or three times per week.

Pujols is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics.

EDGE Analysis

Pujols will rest for the day game after the night game, allowing Justin Bour to pick up a start at first base. Unless he's summoned as a pinch hitter in the series finale, Pujols will wrap up June with a .250 average, four home runs and 17 RBI in 20 games.
