Dodgers to sign Albert Pujols to major-league deal for rest of 2021: reports – Fox News
Albert Pujols is reportedly set to finish the rest of the 2021 season with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Dodgers and the future Hall of Famer came into agreement on a major-league contract, ESPN and the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday. The deal isn’t expected to become official until Monday, according to multiple reports.
The Los Angeles Angels released Pujols last week, abruptly ending the slugger’s 10 years with the team. He had previously spent 11 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals before joining Los Angeles in December 2011. The abrupt decision caused some backlash in baseball circles with both Pedro Martinez and David Ortiz decrying the move.
Ortiz said in an Instagram post he didn’t agree with the move and called it “devastating for fans.”
Martinez added he wasn’t surprised about the “shameful way” he was treated.
