Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols has had surgery on his right foot and will be in a race to recover in time for his team's 2017 Major League Baseball season-opener on April 3.

Albert Pujols may not be ready for opening day after second surgery on right foot. At this time last year, slugger Albert Pujols was recovering from early November surgery aimed at alleviating pain near the arch of his right foot. Now we’ve learned that Pujols required surgery on the same foot on Friday to release the plantar fascia that hobbled him all season long.

Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols had surgery on his right foot Friday, possibly sidelining him past opening day. Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Pujols had the procedure Friday in North Carolina to release his plantar fascia, the ligament connecting the heel to the toes. The three-time NL MVP was bothered by plantar fasciitis repeatedly during the season, but played through the pain in arguably the strongest year of his half-decade with the Angels.



Smokeless tobacco to take a dip among big league newcomers (The Associated Press)

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 18:48:46 PST

That visible circle in the back pockets of big leaguers - typically a sure sign of smokeless tobacco - might be far less common next season. ''I think the smokeless tobacco ban is both logical and I am thankful,'' Los Angeles Angels reliever Huston Street said in an email to The Associated Press on Thursday night. It is possible more than the 12 current major league cities with laws either in place or headed that way will have tobacco bans by the start of the 2017 season.

MVP 2016: Sizing up the finalists (Big League Stew)

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 20:28:16 PST

Each league has a most valuable player, and that player is decided by a panel of 30 voters for each league. All of the voting happened before the playoffs, which is good for most of the finalists, and disappointing for Kris Bryant (who did pretty well in the 2016 playoffs). The race in the American League is wide open, despite the presence of Mike Trout, the best baseball player on planet Earth. Both Jose Altuve and Mookie Betts turned in stellar seasons full of personal bests, and their teams were in contention down the stretch.

Mon, 07 Nov 2016 18:25:25 PST

With baseball's collective bargaining agreement set to expire Dec. 1, trade talk and free-agent signings could go slowly this offseason. Major league general managers gathered Monday for the start of their annual meeting, in the shadow of Camelback Mountain, with guitar music playing over speakers and the smell of mesquite in the hotel courtyard. ''We don't know what rules we're playing yet under,'' Boston Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Monday.
