Albert Pujols the latest player to reach 3000 hit club

Albert Pujols the latest player to reach 3000 hit club

He is just 334 away, and his contract runs through 2023 which will pay him a ton of money.

But they might get to see the Los Angeles Angels' Albert Pujols reach a career milestone. "And I used that term in broad senses".

Nationals 7, Phillies 3: Bryce Harper homered in each of the first two innings, and Matt Adams added another homer as Washington stretched its winning streak to six with a victory over Philadelphia in D.C.

Pujols lined a single to right field in the fifth inning for the Los Angeles Angels to become just the second-ever Dominican native with 3,000 hits. If there's any player who has nothing left to prove, it's him. Honus Wagner tops the list with 43.5 WAR (Baseball-Reference) starting at age 35; the median Hall of Famer contributed 14 wins at these ages. "He's been a joy to watch and a joy to compete against, for sure".

Current and former players from around the league saluted Pujols on the accomplishment. He won Rookie of the Year honors and finished fourth in the MVP voting.

'I'm aware of the legacy and the people that I tie and am on the same page right now, " Pujols said. After Cabrera is Robinson Cano, nearly 600 hits shy of the mark. The roof was left open for an extended period before finally being closed. The 6-foot-2, 175-pound 23-year-old threw 93 pitches with 59 for strikes.

Parker Bridwell (elbow inflammation), who has been on the disabled list in Triple-A, has already thrown a couple bullpen sessions, Scioscia said.

"I remember my [second] at-bat". But deep down, I couldn't imagine how he could leave such a good situation. "I almost hit a home run". But little did he know that he would have far more success than that. Three days before, they told me I was going to make the ballclub. He can't have too many more injury-plagued seasons though if he wants to reach the milestone as he played in just 100 games in 2014 and 111 last season.

He is not worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the bronze effigy of a man so honorable that after a poor season in 1959 he went to the Cardinals front office and demanded a 20-percent pay cut.

The fact that Pujols joined the 3,000-hit club is not in itself all that surprising. I don't think he's done yet. Those were the only runs he drove in during that World Series, however, and he had started to slip a bit that season, dropping under.300 for the first time, failing to drive in 100 runs and posting a then-career-low.366 OBP.

Orioles relief pitcher Darren O'Day, who faced Pujols' Cardinals in the 2011 World Series while with the Rangers, speaks like a hitting coach when describing his rival. Showalter declined to speculate on whether the longtime Baltimore starter's spot in the rotation could be in trouble, but five of Tillman's six starts this season have been fairly rough.

Pujols has had a remarkably consistent career.
