MLB: Dodgers agree with Albert Pujols for a contract


The Los Angeles Dodgers offered a chance for future Hall of Fame member Albert Pujols.

According to what Jorge Castillo reported from LA Times, the Los Angeles side have reportedly agreed to a deal with Pujols for a Major League contract for the remainder of the season. The deal would be confirmed on Monday.

The 41-year-old power hitter was released earlier this week by the Los Angeles Angels.

The Angels still have to pay him the salary of US $ 30 million expected in the final season of a 10-year contract. The team that would contract Pujols would only have to pay him a prorated share of the Majors’ minimum of $ 570,500, which would be offset by what the Angels owe him.

Pujols has maintained a .198 batting average and a .622 powerhouse attendance average this season, with five homers and 12 RBIs.

He is fifth in Major League history in home runs (667) and 13th in hits (3253). Pujols has been named the National’s MVP on three occasions and has won two World Series with the St. Louis Cardinals.

In his career, Pujols boasts a batting average of .298 and an attendance plus power average of .921. He was selected 10 times in the All-Star Game and was the oldest active player in Major League Baseball.
