“I’m feeling sore right now,” Pujols told Laymance. “How I did it, I don’t know, I can’t tell you.”
Austin Laymance of MLB.com has the update from Fenway Park:
Angels first baseman Albert Pujols left Wednesday’s game against the Red Sox in the bottom of the fourth inning, the result of tightness in his right calf.
Pujols was 2-for-2 with a double and run before he was removed from the game with the Angels leading, 4-0.
Albert likely injured himself while trying to leg out a double off the left field wall in the first inning. He was thrown by a couple feet at second base.
The 32-year-old slugger is batting .283/.344/.533 with 28 home runs, 34 doubles and 86 RBI in 121 games played this season. The Angels are calling him day-to-day for now but will reevaluate everything Thursday.
Pujols has not missed a game this year because of an injury and he’s taken just two days off for rest.
