    • Astros' Norichika Aoki: Out of lineup Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Aoki is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Athletics. Josh Reddick (concussion) returned from the disabled list Tuesday and will step in to fill the left field spot, sending Aoki to the bench against Sonny Gray. George Springer will cover right field with Jake Marisnick drawing the start in center.

    • Astros' Norichika Aoki: Sitting out Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Aoki is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rangers, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. The Astros will clear room in the lineup for defensive maven Jake Marisnick as well as fresh call-up Derek Fisher, relegating Aoki to the bench for the series finale. While Fisher remains in the big leagues, he's expected to see most of his reps in right field with Josh Reddick (concussion) on the disabled list, so for the time being, Aoki is still be expected to make the bulk of the starts in left field.

    • Astros' Norichika Aoki: Goes 3-for-4 Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Aoki went 3-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run during Sunday's loss to the Angels. The outfielder is hardly taking advantage of his semi-regular at-bats, as he sports a career-low .641 OPS with just 11 RBI and 13 runs through 148 plate appearances. He appears to have carved out a role, but considering that the Astros are the highest-scoring team in the majors, Aoki's numbers are all the more discouraging. He's probably best left to cavernous settings at this stage of the game.

    • Astros' Norichika Aoki: Hits bench Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Aoki is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Royals, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports. With southpaw Jason Vargas on the mound for the Royals, Astros manager A.J. Hinch will play to the matchup by giving Aoki a day off while the right-handed-hitting Jake Marisnick checks into the lineup. Even as a semi-regular starter in a potent Astros offense, Aoki has failed to provide much of an impact in the fantasy realm, hitting .258 with only nine RBI and 11 runs more than a third of the way through the season.
