LOS ANGELES (AP) — Albert Pujols went on the Los Angeles Dodgers’ COVID-19 injured checklist Tuesday, when Cody Bellinger was activated from the IL after lacking eight video games with a damaged left rib.
Pujols obtained his second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and “just didn’t feel good,” supervisor Dave Roberts mentioned. Roberts mentioned Pujols will likely be re-evaluated Wednesday.
The 41-year-old Pujols is batting .255 with 12 homers and 38 RBIs in 82 video games since he signed with the Dodgers on Might 17 following his launch from the Los Angeles Angels. The three-time NL MVP is fifth with 679 homers, 17 shy of tying Alex Rodriguez for fourth.
Bellinger is hitting .159 in 89 video games. The 2019 NL MVP has 9 house runs and 34 RBIs. He was not within the beginning lineup in opposition to San Diego.
