The Phillies released Pujols (Achilles) on Friday.
Pujols missed nearly all of the 2019 season after undergoing surgery last April to address a torn Achilles' tendon, appearing in only three rehab games between two of the Phillies' rookie-level affiliates in late August. The 24-year-old should now be at full health or close to it 15 months after surgery, but Philadelphia evidently no longer viewed him as a long-term piece. Pujols was a career .238/.304/.406 hitter across six seasons in the organization, topping out at the Double-A level in 2018.
