Albert Pujols, who was limited to DH duties for much of the season's last month, reportedly underwent minor arthroscopic knee surgery last week in St. Louis, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (note at the end), which published the news on its web site late Wednesday night.

The newspaper described the procedure as a "cleanup" that would not impact Pujols' participation in spring training. The newspaper reported that Pujols has already resumed conditioning.

Angels spokesman Tim Mead did not immediately respond to a request for comment Wednesday night.

Pujols, 32, hit .285 with 30 homers and 105 RBI in the first season of a 10-year, $240-million deal with the Angels. After an Aug. 22 game in Boston, Pujols played first base only nine more times, spending the rest of the time at DH.
