Albert Pujols belted his 15th home run of the season in the Angels 8-4 win over the White Sox.
Pujols is now slashing .249/.307/.498 with 15 home runs and 35 RBI through 237 at-bats as he continues to be a power source in the middle of the Angels order. Although his batting average has dipped well below his career average of .319, as long as he continues to hit for power fantasy the good will outweigh the bad. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Yunel Escobar said his groin is improving and will work out prior to Sunday's game.
The MRI on Escobar came back clean, so that's great news. He's still not 100-percent though and will continue to be held out. Escobar believes that he can avoid the DL and will work out prior to the game to prove it. Obviously though, if he doesn't show the improvement in the workout, the team could hold him out a little while longer. The club can go with Danny Espinosa at third and Dan Uggla at second. They also called up Emanuel Burris who can play all over the infield. Analysis: Howard Bender
