According to the Los Angeles Angels, they have designated future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols for assignment.
Pujols was in the final season of his 10-year contract.
Reports suggest that Pujols asked to be released if he was not going to be playing regularly so the Angels obliged.
Congrats on an amazing career, Albert!
