LOS ANGELES (AP) - Albert Pujols says he's taking legal action against Jack Clark after the former St. Louis Cardinals star accused him of taking performance-enhancing drugs.
The injured Los Angeles Angels' slugger released a statement Friday night, saying: "I am currently in the process of taking legal action against Jack Clark and his employers at WGNU 920AM. I am going to send a message that you cannot act in a reckless manner, like they have, and get away with it."
Clark said Pujols' former trainer, Chris Mihlfeld, told him 10 years ago that he "shot him up."
Pujols is sidelined by a partially torn plantar fascia in his left foot. He's in his second season with the Angels after 11 years in St. Louis.
