After earlier reports were positive, many reporters and fans started to calm down on the prospect that Albert Pujols was significantly injured. Turns out we were all wrong.
A second test ran on Albert’s wrist today revealed a fracture in his left forearm. He is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. As of right now his arm is in a splint and surgery is not expected, but things could always change.
There’s no doubt that this is a crushing blow for already struggling St. Louis Cardinals. At least Card fans can take solace in the fact that he won’t be out for the rest of the season. Other than that, there just isn’t much else to say at this point.
Lance Berkman will replace Pujols at first. Check out stltoday.com for more info
