Three teams showing interest in Norichika Aoki
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Orioles, Reds and Mariners are among the teams looking at outfielder Norichika Aoki, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

The 32-year-old Aoki hit .285/.349/.360 over 491 at-bats last year. With the Royals signing Alex Rios earlier in the week, Aoki will likely have to move on with a different club.

Report: Orioles have 'limited' interest in OF Norichika Aoki
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Orioles have "limited" interest in free-agent outfielder Norichika Aoki, masnsports.com reports.

The Orioles have a hole to fill in the outfield after losing Nick Markakis in free agency, but they've indicated a willingness to roll with internal options if the right deal isn't struck. CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reported in November that Aoki was seeking a three-year deal.

Aoki hit .285/.349/.360 with one home run, 43 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 491 at-bats in 2014. He's proven to be a tough out for left-handers in his three-year career and hit .363/.428/.435 against southpaws this past season.

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.
