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.

Manager: Norichika Aoki to need 6-7 rehab games
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Ned Yost has indicated that outfielder Norichika Aoki will require at least six or seven rehab games before returning to the Royals lineup, which means no roster move regarding him will be necessary until after the All-Star break.

A groin injury has sidelined Aoki since June 20. He will take a .263/.326/.324 stat line into his return to the team.
