ST. LOUIS, Mo., June 20, 2011 -- Results from today's MRI and CT-scan of St. Louis Cardinals All-Star first baseman Albert Pujols showed a non-displaced fracture of his left radius (forearm). Pujols was placed in a splint and will likely be sidelined from 4 to 6 weeks.
Pujols' left shoulder was sore, but no structural damage was determined at this time.
The Cardinals will announce a roster move prior to tomorrow night's series opener with the Philadelphia Phillies. Pujols has only been on the disabled list twice previously: June, 2006 for a left oblique strain and June, 2008 for a left calf strain.
