Pujols, batting .258 with 17 homers and 64 RBI in 99 games for the Angels this season, was found to have sustained a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his left foot, the club said.
The slugger came out of Saturday's game after the nagging foot injury became unmanageable, and a subsequent evaluable revealed the muscle tear.
His placement on the 15-day disabled list was made retroactive to July 27.
Los Angeles recalled outfielder Kole Calhoun from Class AAA Salt Lake to take Pujols' roster spot.
