Pujols Has Injured Wrist Re-Examined
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Albert Pujols is making progress toward returning to the St. Louis Cardinals' lineup from a broken left wrist.

Pujols had a CT scan on Friday.

"He got the test and he's working," St. Louis manager Tony La Russa said before Saturday night's game at Tampa Bay.

The Cardinals have said that Pujols is expected back sometime after the All-Star break and late July.

La Russa wouldn't not speculate on when Pujols might return.

Pujols was hurt during a game on June 19 trying to make a tag after taking an offline throw from second baseman Pete Kozma and the Royals' Wilson Betemit collided with the glove hand.
