Pujols’ rehab coming along just nicely

Albert Pujols’ rehab stint is moving ahead of schedule. He hit balls off a tee on Saturday and is expected to graduate to live pitching on Sunday.

The Cards haven’t done terrible without Albert. They’ve gone 7-5 without him.

No date has been set for his return but LaRussa does not think a minor league rehab assignment is necessary.

Rushing him back too soon? Given the product we’re talking about, I’d like to think that LaRussa is being extra careful with the goods. It’s no secret that Pujols has been playing through pain this year and even last year.

If I were a Cardinal fan, I’d like to err on the side of caution.
