The three-time NL MVP is 8 for 18 midway through a 10-game homestand, and his average is up to .250 after languishing below .200 in early May. "It's a long season, so I just try to stay positive all the time and have quality at-bats," Pujols said.

Analysis: Pujols left the game Wednesday night in the fifth, one inning after being hit by Blue Jays right-hander Drew Hutchison. X-rays were negative, but Pujols was unable to grip a bat because of pain and swelling. The slugger said he was unable to feel his fingers.
May 19 1:14 PM PT2:14 PM MT3:14 PM CT4:14 PM ET16:14 ET20:14 GMT4:14 1:14 PM MST3:14 PM EST3:44 PM VEN0:14 UAE (+1)3:14 PM CT-Pujols hit a solo homer and doubled in Monday's loss to Toronto.

Apr. 13 3:27 PM PT4:27 PM MT5:27 PM CT6:27 PM ET18:27 ET22:27 GMT6:27 3:27 PM MST5:27 PM EST5:57 PM VEN2:27 UAE (+1)5:27 PM CT-Pujols went deep for the first time this season and recorded his second double Sunday against the Royals.
Analysis: Pujols is just 4 for 22 thus far but maybe Sunday's pair of extra-base hits can get him going.
Apr. 9 2:42 PM PT3:42 PM MT4:42 PM CT5:42 PM ET17:42 ET21:42 GMT5:42 2:42 PM MST4:42 PM EST5:12 PM VEN1:42 UAE (+1)4:42 PM CT-Pujols hit a two-run dinger for his 521st home run to move into 18th place on baseball's career list Wednesday.
Analysis: Pujols has failed to crack .800 in OPS the last two seasons so don't expect it to happen in 2015.
