The Los Angeles Angels have officially ruled slugger Albert Pujols out for the rest of the 2013 season because of a tear in the plantar fascia in his left foot, the team announced Monday night.

The news confirms what the Angels and Pujols had feared near the end of July. The 33-year-old Pujols, who is still owed $212 million through 2021, had played through the injury through much of the year before the plantar fascia finally tore in late July, causing him to be placed on the disabled list.

Pujols had been relegated to mostly a designated-hitting role in 65 of his 99 games this season, hitting a career-low .258 with 17 home runs, 64 RBI and a career-low .767 OPS.
