Sore Albert Pujols DHing Tonight

Here is the lineup for Saturday night's Angels game against the Diamondbacks:

CF - Mike Trout
RF - Torii Hunter
DH - Albert Pujols
LF - Mark Trumbo
1B - Kendrys Morales
2B - Howie Kendrick
3B - Maicer Izturis
SS - Erick Aybar
C - John Hester

With Ervin Santana on the mound.

Albert Pujols fouled a fastball off his ankle late in the game last night and what better time to rest him a little at Designated Hitter than on the very next evening, especially with a day game tomorrow. With Arizona throwing lefty Joe Saunders onto his former home mound of Anaheim, Kendry's recent streak of sitting versus left handed tarters is snapped. Will he produce? Look for Mike Scioscia to move Turmbo to 1B and put Peter Bourjos into the outfield late in the game if there is a small lead to protect. With flyball-happy Santana, the only hope will be for those airballs to stay in the park - never a guarantee with Ervin VooDoo, but a hope agaisnt hope form the Anaheim faithful...
