ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals plan to activate Albert Pujols off the disabled list Tuesday, a month ahead of schedule in his recovery from a broken left wrist.

The Cardinals have not yet decided whether he will start against Cincinnati on Tuesday night.

After taking indoor batting practice and fielding grounders outside Monday, Pujols said there was no pain and he felt great.

Tuesday is the first day Pujols is eligible to return from the 15-day DL. He broke the wrist in a collision at first base with the Royals’ Wilson Betemit on June 19, and the team initially believed the three-time NL MVP would be out six weeks and could return at the start of August.
