Pujols out with arm injury

7/25/2012

ANAHEIM -- Albert Pujols swung at an inside pitch that hit him in the right forearm during the third inning of Tuesday night's 4-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals. Inflammation must have persisted, because Pujols is not in the lineup for Wednesday's afternoon game.

X-rays proved negative and Pujols is viewed as day to day. Meanwhile, Angels manager Mike Scioscia told reporters it's "questionable" he would use Pujols as a pinch hitter Wednesday.

Torii Hunter, who bruised his hip diving for a ball, is at designated hitter.

Here is the Angels' lineup:

Mike Trout LF

Torii Hunter DH

Mark Trumbo RF

Kendrys Morales 1B

Alberto Callaspo 3B

Howie Kendrick 2B

Maicer Izturis SS

Peter Bourjos CF

Bobby Wilson C
