Albert Pujols Playing Through Pain

The Angels are planning to keep Albert Pujols as the designated hitter for some time to come, the Los Angeles Times reported Sunday.

Pujols played his fourth straight game at DH on Sunday — and doubled home two runs in the Angels’ 13-inning, 4-3 win — while dealing with plantar fasciitis, an inflammation in his left foot.

Pujols said he felt discomfort while running to second base on his double.

“I’m dying,” Pujols told the Times. “It’s hurting real bad.”
