Trending Up: Jose Pujols, RF, Clearwater

A year ago, Pujols hit .194 in 90 games in Clearwater. He has improved drastically in his second season in the Florida State League.

As of May 24th, Pujols was hitting .301 for the Threshers, with 6 home runs and 20 RBIs.

In his last 10 games as of May 22nd, Pujols was hitting .406, going 13-32 during that stretch. Pujols has 53 strikeouts on the season, but his production is enough to make up for that.

Pujols is another player that will have trouble making it up to the Phillies, but could find himself in a trade if the Phillies are active at the deadline.
