Pujols still battling plantar fasciitis …

Albert PujolsAlbert Pujols‘ starts used to be mixed. Now, they’re coming exclusively at designated hitter. And it could continue like that for a while.

The plantar fasciitis on his left foot, which has only grown worse as the season has progressed, has prompted Angels manager Mike Scioscia to start Pujols at DH in four straight games and six of the last seven. He’s tolerating the pain enough to not miss a single start and continue to produce at the plate, posting a .317/.436/.508 slash line in his first 17 games.

But it’s hard for Pujols’ foot to get any better when he’s having to leg out doubles.

It may be even harder to put him on the disabled list.

“You’re always picking at scabs a little bit when you’re out there and you’re trying to play and trying to run,” Scioscia said. “Hopefully, taking the load off of having to go out there and move around first base might be something that might get where it needs to be a little quicker than if he was grinding. Certainly we don’t want it to regress because he’s swinging the bat so well.”

Here’s a look at who’s shining, and who isn’t, in the Angels’ system so far …
