Norichika Aoki heating up from top of lineup
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals right fielder Norichika Aoki has thrived since returning to the top of the lineup on July 26, where he hit almost exclusively until slumping early that month.

Aoki has 19 hits and 12 runs scored in his last 16 games. He has six hits in his last nine at-bats with five runs scored in his last three starts. His average has soared from .258 to .273 in the last three weeks, its highest point since May 26.

Norichika Aoki rips grand slam in defeat of Diamondbacks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Royals right fielder Norichika Aoki only contributed one hit to his team's 15-hit attack Tuesday night in Arizona. But he had the biggest one of all.

Aoki blasted off with the bases loaded in the fifth inning to cap an eight-run inning and stretch the lead to 11-1. He has hit safely in seven of his last game with six RBI and four runs in the last three combined.

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.

Norichika Aoki goes hitless in rehab debut Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals outfielder Norichika Aoki went 0 for 3 in his rehab debut with Double-A Northwest Arkansas Monday.

Aoki hasn't played since June 20, and he doesn't have a specific timetable for his return from a groin injury. It wouldn't be surprising to see him remain on the disabled list through the All-Star break, especially if the team wants him to continue to get comfortable at the plate while the major-league club rests.
