You would imagine so.   I remember reading some speculation that he could potentially play OF later in the season next year once he has recovered enough with his elbow.  

I think if he has TJ - hitting wont be an issue.  I remember coaching against a team, their top pitcher who was the league MVP the season before had TJ in the fall, like Sept/October and he was DH'ing the next season by the beginning of league play which was in early march.  

 

Seems like positional player throwing is like a 6-8 month process, for pitchers to get back on mound in game looking at like 12-14 months.  I would think if he has it when season ends, DH first half of the season and perhaps some OF time the second half?  Admit I have not watched Angels on a regular basis, but Pujols has played a lot of 1B this year, played 70 games there already compared to 6 all of last year.   He is playing 1B like 60% of the time he plays this year, which will be highest since 2014 I think in terms of %.   How has that gone?

This guy seems injury prone.  I don't know how any body can hold up to what he does.

Hopefully it'll hold up better next year when he is a DH only and not pitching.

my understanding is that TJ surgery requires some serious work as far as rehab. I doubt he'd be able to play DH full time and rehab his arm all at the same time.

 

The fact that he runs as fast as Jarrod Dyson is crazy though, considering he's about 60 lbs heavier and twice as tall. Growing up he would probably have played quarterback too if he'd been born here. Like Aaron Rodgers with Silver Slugger and Cy Young awards. That's crazy.

Cant find any news on this ankle injury. Are we assuming hes going to start tonight? 

 

Havent seen any info but am worried the Angels might want to rest him a bit.

He's tied his career high in hrs but it has taken him less at bats in MLB then it took him in Japan to reach 22hrs...dude is simply unreal. Also his game winning home run tonight was pretty much all arms/wrist straight to the opposite field.
