Angels: Pujols done for season

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles Angels say slugger Albert Pujols is done for the season because of an injured left foot.

The Angels made the announcement Monday before playing Cleveland.

Pujols hasn't played since July 26. He had been saying he wanted to return when his partially torn plantar fascia healed.

The injury has bothered him all season, and forced the first baseman to mostly become a designated hitter. The Angels began the season with high hopes, but are far back in the playoff race.

The 33-year-old Pujols hit .258 with 17 home runs and 64 RBIs this year. This is the first time the 3-time NL MVP finished with fewer than 30 homers in his 13-season major league career.

Pujols is in the second season of his $240 million, 10-year contract.
