Albert Pujols Injury: Angels First Baseman Reportedly Expected Back Tuesday At The Earliest

Albert Pujols is not expected to return to the Los Angeles Angels lineup until Tuesday at the earliest, according to the Orange County Register's Bill Plunkett:

Pujols has been dealing with inflammation in his right calf since Thursday when he exited the Angels' game against the Boston Red Sox in the fourth inning. He underwent an MRI on Thursday, which revealed no serious or structural damage. If the Angels want to make an effective late-season push for a playoff spot, they'll need a healthy Pujols, and that requires showing a bit of patience at this point.
