Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 1B Albert Pujols (foot) is completely healthy this spring, but manager Mike Scioscia said Pujols won't play first on an everyday basis once spring action starts. "He's not at that point," Scioscia said. "And we wouldn't do it anyway. If he felt great, there's no doubt about getting him in the flow in little bits. You're not going to just throw him out there and have him play 15 straight spring training games because he feels good, because I think by Game 16 you might be facing a problem." The goal is for him to play "on a regular basis" once the regular season begins. 1B Carlos Pena and DH Raul Ibanez will get repetitions at first when Pujols isn't out there.
