Mozeliak denies Pujols report
Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak denied a report Wednesday afternoon that Albert Pujols is set to announce his return to the Cardinals.
J.C. Corcoran, a St. Louis radio personality, wrote on his personal Twitter account Wednesday:
“Albert to announce on Friday he’s re-signing with the Cardinals.”
ESPN’s Chris Singleton tweeted something similar a few minutes later, though it was unclear whether he was referring to Corcoran’s tweet or going off of other information. Singleton wrote:
“I’m hearing that Albert is going to resign in St. Louis. Stay tuned…”
Either way, though, Mozeliak poured cold water on any notion of a quick resolution to the Pujols talks. Reached by MLB.com to comment on Corcoran’s claim, Mozeliak had a three-word email response:
“No truth, zero.”
