Pujols and Foley’s news
CARDINALS ADDRESS PUJOLS MEDIA REPORTS;
BOTH TEAM & PUJOLS AGREE HIS SEASON IS NOT IN JEAPORDY
ST. LOUIS, September 9, 2008 – The St. Louis Cardinals addressed media reports from yesterday citing uncertainty over the condition of Albert Pujols’ right elbow by stating today that Cardinals management, Pujols and his representatives are in agreement that the condition does not appear to be season-threatening nor do they have a clear indication that it will or will not require future surgery.
“We are sensitive to Albert’s stated concerns,” said Cardinals’ Vice President/General Manager John Mozeliak. “At no time would we ever ask Albert to consider anything other then what is best for his career and future health.”
The team plans to conduct a follow-up medical exam with Pujols at season’s end, just as it does every year, and will make a determination at that time to as to any future course of action.
