Angels Pujols out of Thursday's lineup with tight right calf
Angels first baseman Albert Pujols is not in Thursday's lineup against the Boston Red Sox with tightness in his right calf. An MRI taken earlier in the day revealed no structural damage.
Pujols doubled in the fourth inning of Wednesday's game and pulled up running between second and third on Kendrys Morales' grounder to shortstop before slowing going into the third-base bag.
He stayed in the game, but ran home slowly on Mark Trumbo's single to center, noticeably limping on his way to the dugout.
