Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - Albert Pujols was not in the starting lineup for the Angels' game against the Blue Jays on Saturday.

The 12-year-veteran, who signed a 10-year $240 million contract during the offseason, is hitting just .194 and is in the midst of the longest homerless drought -- 137 at-bats overall and 108 to start the year -- of his career.

Pujols, 32, has just two hits over his last 27 at-bats and one run batted in over his last 18 contests.

Mark Trumbo got the start at first base.
