Pujols scratched due to tight lower back

Albert Pujols was initially slated to play in the Cardinals’ Monday afternoon game at home against the Red Sox, but instead has been scratched due to a recurrence of tightness in his lower back. 

Manager Tony La Russa confirmed on Monday morning that Pujols has been scratched as a result of the issue. La Russa had said on Sunday that Pujols would play in Monday’s game, and Pujols came back with the team following a Sunday contest on the road against the Braves — a game that was rained out in the second inning.
Pujols reported to the park on Monday morning but was not in the lineup on a rainy day as a result of the tightness. In his absence, scheduled third-base starter Ruben Gotay moved to first base and Donovan Solano started at third base.

Come on Albert…get that back in shape! Perhaps a trip to the chiropractor or massage therapist would be in order? I would hate to think you may be battling this all season. Go, CardBirds!!

Dude needs to talk to a Physical Therapist, not a Chiropractor. PTs will tell you how to fix the problem long term, not just make you feel better in the short.
