Albert Pujols
39-Year-Old First Baseman1B
Los Angeles Angels
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Good news Angels fans: there’s only three years left on Pujols' contract! This is a sunk cost, so the real issue is Pujols really should leave his first baseman’s mitt at home but can’t since designated hitter is earmarked for Shohei Ohtani, at least against right-handed pitching. Skills-wise, Pujols remained steady compared to 2017, though he failed to play at least 143 games for the just the second time in his illustrious career. After offseason surgery to remove a bone spur from his right elbow, the hope is Pujols can eclipse last season’s 70 games in the field. At this stage, Pujols’ utility in mixed leagues is marginal as there isn’t much of a market for a part-time first baseman with average power and a low average. When healthy, Pujols could serve as an injury replacement at corner or utility. Read Past Outlooks
