Free agent Norichika Aoki looking for three-year deal
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Free agent outfielder Norichika Aoki is seeking a three-year deal in free agency, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The Reds and Royals are among interested teams, but the Royals seem more focused on signing veteran outfielder Torii Hunter.

The 32-year-old Aoki spent the 2014 season with the Royals, batting .285 with one home run, 22 doubles and 43 RBI in 132 games. He then hit .195 in 14 postseason games.

Jocketty: Reds targeting Michael Morse, Norichika Aoki
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Reds general manager Walt Jocketty said Friday that his team will target outfielders Michael Morse and Norichika Aoki in free agency, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

The Reds prefer to add to the offense via free agency rather than through a trade, and the outfield is a clear area of need, as none of the team's outfielders who logged at least 200 at-bats in 2014 was able to manage an OPS of .700 or better. A free-agent addition would presumably be brought in to man left field next to Billy Hamilton and Jay Bruce.

Norichika Aoki on tear in leading Royals roll offensively
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Royals have picked it up lately offensively and right fielder Norichika Aoki is greatly responsible.

Aoki has been white-hot with 11 hits in his last 13 at-bats to raise his average 16 points to .281 - no easy feat at this time of year. That mark is at its highest point since May 25, but his overall hot streak has extended back to Aug. 27. Aoki has hit safely in all but four games since then and is 28 for 72 during that stretch.
