Albert Pujols. Once the most feared hitter in the game and at one time worth between 15 and 20 cents to the moneyline, could now miss the remainder of the 2013 season with a tear in his left foot.
The Angels' DH was hitting .258 with 17 homers and 64 RBIs prior to the injury which occured in the ninth inning of Friday's 6-4 loss to the Oakland A's.
"He's probably not worth anything to the moneyline or totals anymore," Ed Salmons, an oddsmaker at The LVH told Covers. "It would be so minimal that it's inconsquential."
Pujols signed a 10-year, $240 million contract with the Angels in 2011.
Prior to Monday's game against the Texas Rangers, the Angels were fourth in the American League West with a record of 48-55.
