May 30 8:55 AM PT9:55 AM MT10:55 AM CT11:55 AM ET11:55 ET15:55 GMT23:55 8:55 AM MST10:55 AM EST11:25 AM VEN19:55 UAE10:55 AM CT-Pujols had his 530th career homer among three hits in the Los Angeles Angels' 2-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.
Analysis: Pujols is surging after a slow start despite impressive contact on a near-nightly basis. The three-time NL MVP is 8 for 18 midway through a 10-game homestand, and his average is up to .250 after languishing below .200 in early May. "It's a long season, so I just try to stay positive all the time and have quality at-bats," Pujols said.

Analysis: Pujols is definitely rosterable with 19 RBIs and nine homers in 45 games, but he's no longer the baseball savant of yesteryear. He owns an underwhelming .730 OPS.

Analysis: Pujols left the game Wednesday night in the fifth, one inning after being hit by Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison. X-rays were negative, but Pujols was unable to grip a bat because of pain and swelling. The slugger said he was unable to feel his fingers.

Analysis: Pujols had not played since he left Wednesday night's game against the Oakland Athletics after appearing to injure his left leg while running to first base in sixth inning.
Apr. 13 3:27 PM PT4:27 PM MT5:27 PM CT6:27 PM ET18:27 ET22:27 GMT6:27 3:27 PM MST5:27 PM EST5:57 PM VEN2:27 UAE (+1)5:27 PM CT-Pujols went deep for the first time this season and recorded his second double Sunday against the Royals.
Analysis: Pujols is just 4 for 22 thus far but maybe Sunday's pair of extra-base hits can get him going.

Analysis: Pujols has failed to crack .800 in OPS the last two seasons so don't expect it to happen in 2015.
