Angels' Pujols has foot surgery, could be sidelined 4 months

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols had surgery on his right foot Friday, possibly sidelining him past opening day.

Angels general manager Billy Eppler said Pujols had the procedure Friday in North Carolina to release his plantar fascia, the ligament connecting the heel to the toes. The three-time NL MVP was bothered by plantar fasciitis repeatedly during the season, but played through the pain in arguably the strongest year of his half-decade with the Angels.

Eppler said the surgery typically prevents players from participating in baseball activities for three months, along with another month before they're ready to resume playing in games. Opening day for Los Angeles is April 3, and the Angels hope Pujols can be ready.
