Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols has become the fourth-youngest player to record 550 or more home runs and 1,700 RBIs after driving in a run Saturday night against the Texas Rangers.
With a fielder's choice groundout, @PujolsFivebecomes just the 11th player all-time to log 1,700 RBI & 550 HR.https://t.co/OgI8UR2cM8

Only New York Yankees designated hitter Alex Rodriguez and Hall of Famers Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron have accomplished the feat quicker.
Pujols, who boasts 560 career homers on his resume, also moved into sole possession of 24th on the all-time RBI list, and is closing in rapidly on Reggie Jackson and Frank Thomas.


The 36-year-old slugger is off to a slow start this season, hitting .125/.125/.125 in four games prior to Saturday's contest.



RANK       PLAYER           RBI
20       Frank Robinson    1812
21       Honus Wagner     1732
22       Frank Thomas      1704
23       Reggie Jackson     1702
24       Albert Pujols         1700
