While Albert Pujols continues to look for a new Major League Baseball team, the three-time National League MVP is reportedly generating interest from his native country for the Olympics. 

Per MLB Network's Jon Morosi, the Dominican Republic has shown interest in Pujols playing for the national team as part of the upcoming Olympic qualifier.  

Los Angeles Angels general manager Perry Minasian announced Thursday that Pujols had been designated for assignment. The 10-time All-Star was in the final season of a 10-year, $253 million contract he signed with the team in December 2011.
