Pujols sitting out today's game with sore back

Mar 8, 2010, 11:40 AM EST

Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post Dispatch reports that Albert Pujols has been scratched from today’s lineup after receiving chiropractic treatment on his sore lower back.
Pujols remained at the Cardinals’ spring training complex and told reporters that he feels good enough to potentially be back in the lineup as soon as tomorrow.
“It’s been bothering me some, so I got it looked at,” Pujols said. “It’s better now. It’s still early. I don’t want to push it if it’s going to set me back. But we’ll see. I want to play.”
