Pujols, 34, dealt with a tear in the plantar fascia of his left foot in 2013 and was shut down before the season ended. Pujols hit career lows in nearly every offensive statistic finishing with a .258/.330/.437 line with 17 home runs and just 64 RBI.
Also on Hot Stove, Pujols has had “normal” offseason, hitting since Oct. Why that is so vital for #Angels

The Angels will be hoping that they get more out of Pujols this season and going forward as they owe him $222 million.
