Description: Royals outfielder Norichika Aoki is an impressive .538 career hitter against Red Sox starter Joe Kelly.
Insight: Aoki is 7-for-13 and had three doubles against Kelly. Aoki went 2-for-4 on Saturday. He should be in your lineup on Sunday.
 
9/5/2014 9:52:00 PM
Description: Royals outfielder Norichika Aoki hit an RBI-single in the third inning and that's all James Shields would need as Kansas City defeated New York, 1-0, on Friday.
Insight: Aoki was 1-for-3 with the RBI on Friday. Aoki is hitting .265 with 23 extra-base hits and 34 RBI in 412 at-bats this year.
 
8/14/2014 10:45:00 AM
Description: Royals outfielder Norichika Aoki is 7-for-16 (.438) with three extra-base hits against Oakland starter Jeff Samardzija.
Insight: Aoki has multiple-hit games in his last three starts to raise his average to .273 with 1 HR, 26 RBI and 50 runs scored.
 
8/8/2014 11:50:00 AM
Description: Royals outfielder Norichika Aoki is hitless in 11 at-bats against Giants tough left-hander Madison Bumgarner.
Insight: Aoki (.263, 1 HR, 44 RBI) has hit safely in five of his last six games, but should be avoided in this unfavorable amtchup.
 
7/11/2014 4:00:00 PM
Description: Royals outfielder Norichika Aoki was activated from the 15-day disabled list and will lead off and play right field Friday night against Detroit.
Insight: Aoki (.263, 0 HR, 14 RBI) has recovered from a groin strain, but likely won't try to steal bases at first. Unfortunately without that speed, he doesn't present much of a value to fantasy owners.

Description: Royals outfielder Norichika Aoki has been placed on the 15-day disabled list. SOURCE: Jsh Vernier, Fox Sports Kansas City
Insight: Aoki (.263, 0 HR, 14 RBI) left Tuesday night's game with a groin injury and has played sparingly since then. Justin Maxwell (.133, 0 HR, 2 RBI) will take over his vacant roster spot.
 
6/19/2014 11:25:00 AM
Description: Royals outfielder Norichika Aoki is back in the lineup for Thursday afternoon's game with Detroit.
Insight: Aoki (.261, 0 HR, 14 RBI) left Tuesday night's game with a groin injury and missed Wednesday's contest.
 
6/18/2014 10:49:00 AM
Description: The Royals will be without Norichika Aoki Wednesday against the Tigers. SOURCE: Andy McCullough, Kansas City Star
Insight: It's no surprise after Aoki (.261, 0 HR, 14 RBI) left last night's game with a groin injury. Lorenzo Cain (.318, 2 HR, 29 RBI) will get the nod at right field.
 
6/17/2014 8:20:00 PM
Description: Kansas City right fielder Norichika Aoki left Tuesday's game with groin discomfort.
Insight: Aoki went 1-for-2 with a run prior to exiting and was replaced in right field by Lorenzo Cain, who was supposed to be getting the night off. Aoki has a .261 average and zero homers this season and doesn't do enough in the run or steal categories to make up for it.
 
6/2/2014 10:25:00 AM
Description: Kansas City right fielder Norichika Aoki is a career .500 hitter (7-for-14) against Cardinals right-hander Shelby Miller.
Insight: Like most of the Royals, Aoki isn't hitting for much power (.644 OPS), but he has scored 28 runs and stolen seven bases.
 
5/26/2014 6:40:00 AM
Description: Kansas City right fielder Norichika Aoki didn't start Sunday against the Angels, but did end up getting into the game as a pinch runner.
Insight: He dealing with a sore elbow, so the pinch-runner role doesn't necessarily mean he's coming back tomorrow. Lorenzo Cain gets most of the starts in right field for the Royals when Aoki is sidelined.
 
5/25/2014 2:27:00 PM
Description: Kansas City right fielder Norichika Aoki won't be in the lineup Sunday against the Angels. SOURCE: Andy McCullough, Kansas City Star
Insight: He must have tweaked his elbow during Saturday's 13-inning marathon. Lorenzo Cain (.313, 1 HR, 14 RBI) will start in right field for the Royals.
 
5/7/2014 8:15:00 PM
Description: Royals right fielder Norichika Aoki collected three hits Wednesday in a win against San Diego.
Insight: It's his third three-hit game of the season. All three of the hits were singles. Aoki doesn't hit for much power (homerless in 127 at bats this season) and his OPS this year (.677) is well below his career average (.746). Despite the good game on Wednesday, Aoki isn't a particularly exciting fantasy option.
 
Cold4/16/2014 7:05:00 PM
Description: Royals right fielder Norichika Aoki is getting the night off Wednesday against Houston.
Insight: Aoki is just two for his last 19 (.105) and could probably use a night off to clear his head. Justin Maxwell (.000, 0 HR, 0 RBI) will start in right field for Kansas City.
 
4/6/2014 10:57:00 AM
Description: Royals RF Norichika Aoki is out of the starting lineup Sunday against the White Sox.
Insight: Aoki is off to a 4-for-16 start with two doubles, three walks and one steal with his new team. He's getting a day off with lefty Chris Sale on the mound.
 
12/5/2013 11:29:00 AM
Description: Outfielder Norichika Aoki has been traded from Milwaukee to Kansas City.
Insight: Aoki hasn't shown a lot of power, but he's averaged 25 SB in his to seasons with Milwaukee. If he earns a spot at the top of the Royals lineup he could have a solid value as a No. 3 fantasy outfield. He's a career .287 hitter with a .355 OBP and a .755 OPS.
 
10/29/2013 7:50:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee will exercise its team option on right fielder Norichika Aoki.
Insight: The Brewers' beat writer for MLB.com Adam McCalvy called the move a "no-brainer." We're not ready to go that far but Aoki certainly has a knack for getting on base (.355 career OBP in 306 major league appearances). You could make a case for him being drafted in one of the later rounds of next year's fantasy draft.
 
9/27/2013 10:20:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee right fielder Norichika Aoki hit his eighth homer of the year Friday against the Mets.
Insight: Aoki was a 10/30 player as a rookie but he has hit eight home runs with 20 steals this year.
 
9/21/2013 9:39:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee right fielder Norichika Aoki pounded out four hits in Friday's loss to the Cardinals.
Insight: It's been a turbulent year for the Brewers but at least they've been able to rely on steady production from Aoki. The 31-year-old from Japan is tied with shortstop Jean Segura for second on the team in runs scored (74). He also ranks second in batting average (.284).
 
8/29/2013 10:26:00 PM
Description: Patellar tendinitis was the reason for Norichika Aoki's absence from Thursday night's starting lineup. SOURCE: Brewers.com
Insight: The Brewers right fielder entered the game later on as pinch-hitter so he can't be hurting too badly. There's a good chance he'll be back in the starting nine Friday against the Angels.
