Albert Pujols and the other position players for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will be reporting to Spring Training on the 18th. They’ll undergo their first full team workout the next day as they prepare themselves to take over the American League West.
Last year Pujols suffered a terrible injury that pretty much had him hitting for power with just one leg. Albert was limited to just 99 games last year, but appears to be doing better after taking it easy during the off-season. Something that he hasn’t done, ever.
According to Mike DiGiovanna on Twitter, Pujols has lost seven pounds and says that he is now 100 percent.
Good news for #Angels out of chute: Albert Pujols down 7 lbs, looking very lean and muscular, said L foot and R knee are 100 percent.

That’s great news for the Angels and their fans, but not for everybody else. Albert will be looking to bounce back and put up huge numbers after having a career low (in every category) season.
