From the LA Times - Angels' Albert Pujols says he'll be ready for season opener


Recommended Posts

The slugger, who is recovering from surgery on his right knee, plans to be ready to play April 1 at Cincinnati.<br/><br/>TEMPE, Ariz. — As he recovers from surgery on his right knee, Albert Pujols' spring-training routine hasn't changed much over 2 1/2 weeks. He is taking batting practice, fielding grounders hit at him and jogging on a treadmill.<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/latimes/sports/baseball/mlb/angels/~4/3DL1gIc-P7U" height="1" width="1"/>

As I recall, he had a great spring training last year and then slumped in the season start. Maybe he'd start better without spring training? (tic in case anyone misses it)

 

He was pressing to start out well because of a new team and living up to his contract. He said he is relaxed now and settled in with the team. ESPN has him as one of five players that are set for a big comeback this season.

First reported Pujols would have surgery but be ready for Spring Training

Then said he would be ready with 2 weeks left of Spring

Now he should be back by Opening Day.

 

I'm not liking the trend of this.

Ready with 2 weeks left of Spring hasn't changed.

 

They're still saying he'll get into games by mid-March.

Shock treatment

If you saw a television interview of Jered Weaver after his two-inning, one-run, two-hit, two-strikeout effort in Friday's 16-8 exhibition win over the Dodgers, no, the Angels ace didn't have a nervous twitch or first-game jitters.

He was using a new H-wave electronic device that stimulates muscles and nerves to promote circulation and range of motion but causes the shoulder to twitch rather violently.

"I'm like a guinea pig with this new contraption," said Weaver, who has been slowed by occasional bouts of shoulder tendinitis. "It's like an electronic massage machine. It's supposed to knock out inflammation and replace ice. We'll see how it works."

 

 

 

I want one of those.  I was in Vegas a few weekends ago and got a sample from one of the cheap knockoffs, and it was really cool.

The important thing is that his recovery is on schedule, and there have been no setbacks.

 

Where is that sarcasm icon when you need it?
