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.
"Cozart is our opening day shortstop and he's one of the best in the league," Jocketty said.
"We think DeSclafani will fit into our rotation this year. Our scouts were very, very high on him," Jocketty said.
Cueto, who won a career-high 20 games in 2014, is in the final year of a five-year, $36.2 million contract.
"We had a brief meeting with his agent down here and we'll see how re-signing him progresses. But it won't be easy," Jocketty said.
