Where in the heck did this come from? That's what many Los Angeles Angels fans are asking themselves right now after the club announced that future Hall-of-Fame slugger Albert Pujols had been released.

Pujols, who arrived to the club in 2012, was in the last year of his massive 10-year contract. Now, instead of closing out the contract, he'll look to sign with a new team to finish out the 2021 campaign.

Before arriving to the Angels, Pujols was a three-time NL MVP while suiting up for the St. Louis Cardinals, winning the World Series with the team twice. Now, we'll see where he lands next.
