Future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols is being released by the Los Angeles Angels, the team announced on Thursday. The news was first reported by MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand.

Pujols is officially being designated for assignment, which means he’s being immediately removed from the team’s 40-man roster as a prelude to his eventual release. No reason has been given by the Angels or Pujols himself, but it may stem from an incident that reportedly happened on Wednesday.
