"I need to get my at-bats," Pujols said. "The main goal is to come out of here healthy and to be ready for the season," Pujols said. Pujols, a three-time Most Valuable Player and a nine-time All-Star, faced one of those rare occasions against the Reds on Tuesday, when he made his first appearance in Spring Training. Pujols, batting third as the designated hitter, had a broken-bat grounder to third in the first against Mike Leake , struck out swinging in the fourth versus Aroldis Chapman and grounded to shortstop in the sixth against Wilkin De La Rosa. Jay Bruce hit a pair of solo homers for the Reds, off Tommy Hanson in the second and Scott Downs in the fourth.
