UPDATE - Albert Pujols Watch - Non-Displaced Fracture

A PT's POV

UPDATE -
MLB‎ BREAKING: Albert Pujols has a non-displaced fracture of his left radius (forearm). He will likely be sidelined 4-6 weeks.


UPDATE - SiriusXMFantasy‎ Dr Roto on Albert Pujols "has strength in wrist, likely not a break. Swelling. Might play this weekend at earliest. DL is a possibility"

VIDEO

Yesterday, Albert Pujols left the game with a left wrist injury, while also indicating he might have injured his shoulder as well.

I love Pujols, but I cant help but say that the injury is kind of his own fault.  If his footing was correct(right foot on the bag), he would have had his left arm extended in front of him instead of out to the side.

MattSebek: The Cubs can't buy a break. Albert Pujols hasn't even signed with them yet and he's injured.


djneltz‎ Maybe Tony LaRussa IS a genius for having played Albert Pujols at 3B - should have stuck to that TLR #Cardinals #heissmarterthanyou
BrewCrewLive‎ I'm not gonna lie. Seeing that Albert Pujols is hurt and out 4-6 weeks does not make me sad. It's baseball. Injuries happen.

HKYZLYF‎ Ken Rosenthal reporting Albert Pujols out 4-6 weeks with a fractured wrist. Great year to own the first pick in fantasy leagues.

TSX_MLB‎ 1B Albert Pujols left Sunday's game with a sprained left wrist, and he willl have X-rays and an MRI exam Monday

MikeFrier‎ lesson from albert pujols, never close the door during the season to negotiations

SportsGrindEnt‎ It's laughable that these reports are still listing Albert Pujols injury as a strain. That is torn or broke

M_Specter‎ If #Pujols is put on the 15-day DL it may not b 2 bad...#Berkman at first and #Jay in RF. Still, #Cardinals will miss Albert if he is DL'ed.

LadyL23Albert Pujols should have signed that contract....ouch!

@darrenrovell: If u are a Cards fan you want Albert Pujols to be hurt for a week or 2. More important for him to buckle in negotiations.

DonnyDonnybrook‎ Awkward moment on SportsCenter just now. Playing the upbeat intro music while showing Albert Pujols getting seriously injured in slo-mo

OppositePicks‎ Since Albert Pujols is going to the hospital for an MRI on his ailing shoulder/wrist....why not take a drug test while he's there???
