Pujols Done for Season...Jennings, Wilson Activated 8/20/13
The Los Angeles Angels say slugger Albert Pujols (POO'-hohlz) is done for the season because of an injured left foot.
Pujols hasn't played since July 26 and was hoping to return when his partially torn plantar fascia healed.
The 33-year-old Pujols hit .258 with 17 home runs and 64 RBIs this year. This is the first time the three-time NL MVP finished with fewer than 30 homers in his 13-season major league career.
Also in the majors, the Tampa Bay Rays have activated outfielder Desmond Jennings from the 15-day disabled list. Jennings fractured his left middle finger while sliding in a game Aug. 3. He's batting .258 with 11 homers and 40 RBIs, along with a team-high 17 stolen bases.
The Boston Red Sox have promoted 20-year-old shortstop Xander Bogaerts (ZAN'-dur BOH'-gahrts) from Triple-A Pawtucket in time to open a three-game series in San Francisco. Manager John Farrell said he might give Bogaerts a start as soon as Tuesday night.
Reliever Brian Wilson has been activated from the disabled list by the Los Angeles Dodgers after being sidelined since April 2012 because of an elbow injury. The former All-Star closer is mounting a comeback from Tommy John surgery. He'll be available for the start of the Dodgers' series in Miami tonight.
Washington has acquired outfielder David DeJesus in a trade with the Chicago Cubs for a player to be named later. The deal bolsters Washington's bench as it tries to make an improbable late run for a playoff spot. Coming into the day, the Nationals trailed Cincinnati by 9.5 games for the NL's second wild-card slot.
