Reds among five potential landing spots for Pujols

With Albert Pujols available after the Los Angeles Angels designated him for assignment on Thursday, CBS Sports' Mike Axisa writes that the Cincinnati Reds are among five Major League Baseball teams that could take a chance on the future National Baseball Hall of Fame first baseman.

Former National League MVP first basemen Albert Pujols and Joey Votto.

From Axisa:

The Reds lost first baseman Joey Votto to a broken thumb Wednesday and he is expected to miss several weeks. Cincinnati could go with Alex Blandino, Kyle Farmer, or Mike Moustakas at first base, though none are ideal solutions (moving Moustakas to first would require moving Jonathan India or Nick Senzel to third, and open a hole elsewhere). Asking Pujols to play first base on an everyday basis at this point in his career isn't the best idea, but the Reds are an option.
