Pujols returns to lineup two days after injection

Mar 24, 2010, 12:42 PM EDT

Albert Pujols has rejoined the Cardinals’ lineup this afternoon, batting third and playing first base, just two days after receiving an anti-inflammatory shot in his sore lower back.
Pujols has been limited by back problems for much of spring training, sitting out most of last week and being a last-minute scratch from several different lineups, but an MRI exam Monday apparently showed nothing major.
That the Cardinals are willing to let him get right back into game action so quickly when resting him for another day or two in the middle of spring training wouldn’t impact much of anything suggests that they aren’t very worried. Hopefully he can avoid tweaking the injury again before Opening Day arrives.

    Pujols was injected? He’s so mild mannered. What did he do to piss off the umpire that much?

    Pujols was injected? How is that news at all? He should be used to that by now!

    Come on now, if you couldn’t tell that was sarcasm then you need to get a life!
