Angels Vs. Blue Jays Starting Lineups: Albert Pujols Returns For Halos

The Los Angeles Angels look for their second straight win on Sunday afternoon as they host the Toronto Blue Jays in the finale of a four-game series at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. The Angels won on Saturday night and on Sunday, now with Albert Pujols, are looking for a series split with Toronto.

Jerome Williams gets the start for the Angels, looking to continue his great run of late. Williams in his last three starts is 2-0 with a 1.99 ERA and 18 strikeouts, including a complete game shutout on Tuesday against the Minnesota Twins, the first shutout for Williams in nine years. Drew Hutchison starts for Toronto.

Pujols has had a horrendous start to his season, the first year in a 10-year mega contract signed this winter. Pujols is hitting just .194/.237/.269 with no home runs and five RBI in 27 games, and he was given Saturday night off to regroup. Pujols is back in the lineup on Sunday for the Halos, batting third and playing first base. Here are Sunday's starting lineups:

Blue Jays (16-12)

Johnson 2B
Thames LF
Bautista RF
Lind DH
Encarnacion 1B
Lawrie 3B
Rasmus CF
