Albert Pujols had plasma injection for problematic knee
Albert Pujols was placed on the disabled list Friday by the Los Angeles Angels and is already working towards improving his condition.
Angels manager said that Pujols received a platelet-rich plasma injection to help his left knee heal. The knee apparently was bothering Pujols for a while.
Mike Scioscia said Albert Pujols has been bothered by pain in his left knee for "awhile" and has been at about 50 percent. He received a PRP injection earlier today.

Pujols had been hot at the plate, hitting four home runs in his previous four games, so the timing of his DL stint wasn’t the best for his rhythm. But it does make sense considering the Angels are playing in Dodger Stadium this weekend, where there isn’t a DH.
The 38-year-old is expected to return to action on July 23.
