Royals | Norichika Aoki dominating lefties

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 09:13:29 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki went 2-for-3 against Oakland Athletics SP Scott Kazmir Wednesday, Aug. 13, and he raised his average to .358 against lefties this year.

Fantasy Tip: Believe it or not, Aoki is hitting for a better average against southpaws (.315) in his career than against righties (.270). Keep that in mind when playing the matchups with Aoki in daily leagues.

Royals | Norichika Aoki officially activated

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 12:41:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki (groin) has officially been activated from the disabled list Friday, July 11. In a corresponding move, 2B Christian Colon was optioned to Triple-A Omaha.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki is in the lineup tonight, but he might be involved in a platoon in right field after the All-Star break when Alex Gordon (wrist) returns, since Lorenzo Cain and Jarrod Dyson have been playing so well. A platoon situation for Aoki should limit his ownership to AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

Royals | Norichika Aoki returns

Fri, 11 Jul 2014 12:15:30 -0700

Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki (groin) is batting leadoff and playing right field Friday, July 11, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Return Aoki to your lineups in AL-only formats, but he'll face stingy Anibal Sanchez, so it isn't an ideal matchup. He has mixed league potential but hasn't had a great start in Kansas City and will likely split time with Jarrod Dyson, at least initially.

Royals | Norichika Aoki's role uncertain

Thu, 26 Jun 2014 10:15:59 -0700

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said the plan at this point is for OF Norichika Aoki (groin) to return the starting lineup when he comes off the 15-day disabled list, but Yost indicated the plan could change when Aoki is healed. Aoki could be part of a platoon with OF Jarrod Dyson when he returns, because he hits better against left-handed pitchers than he does right-handed pitchers.

Royals | Norichika Aoki placed on DL

Sat, 21 Jun 2014 08:03:53 -0700

The Kansas City Royals have placed OF Norichika Aoki (groin) on the 15-day disabled list because of a groin injury. The team has also purchased the contract of OF Justin Maxwell from Triple-A Omaha.

Fantasy Tip: With Aoki out, Jarrod Dyson probably will receive most of the time in the outfield until Aoki returns. Dyson could be a decent short-term option for owners in deeper leagues.
