Mariners | Seattle outfield rotation still in flux

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 12:13:50 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki will play every day in the Mariners' outfield, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto. In center field, the Mariners will use a combination of OFs Franklin Gutierrez, Nelson Cruz, Leonys Martin and Seth Smith.

Fantasy Tip: In short, the Mariners are content to let this settle out on the field. It's no surprise Aoki will start and should be drafted in middle AL rounds and middle to late mixed rounds. Of the others Cruz is the most draftable.

Mariners | Nori Aoki to bat leadoff for Mariners

Thu, 03 Dec 2015 16:21:06 -0800

Seattle Mariners OF Nori Aoki is expected to be the club's leadoff hitter for the 2016 season and will play all three outfield positions, primarily in left field, according to general manager Jerry Dipoto.

Fantasy Tip: Given his track record of being able to get on base, Aoki could potentially be a steal in all fantasy formats, hitting in front of proven run-producers like Robinson Cano and Nelson Cruz. That is, of course, if the Mariners stand pat with their two big boppers in the heart of the order.

Giants | Nori Aoki could re-sign

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 11:44:59 -0800

The San Francisco Giants are interested in re-signing OF Nori Aoki (concussion), who is said to be "100%" after suffering a late-season concussion, according to his agent, Nez Balelo.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki missed a lot of time in his first year with the Giants in 2015. He's a scrappy leadoff hitter type that has very little power that fantasy owners can lean on. He might be in a platoon role if the Giants re-sign him, too, which would likely limit his value to NL-only leagues.

Giants | SF expected to bring back Nori Aoki

Fri, 23 Oct 2015 17:56:40 -0700

The San Francisco Giants are expected to pick up the $5.5-million option on OF Nori Aoki's (concussion) contract for the 2016 season, assuming that he fully recovers from his concussion.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki hit .287 with five home runs, 26 RBIs and 14 steals in 93 games in 2015. He makes a useful reserve outfielder in NL-only and deep mixed leagues because of his combination of speed and hitting for a decent average.

Giants | Nori Aoki out for season

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 06:11:55 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Nori Aoki (concussion) will not play in the final two games of the regular season because he is still recovering from a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: Aoki ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) had a decent 2015 season with a .287 batting average, five home runs and 26 RBI but was limited by injuries. Owners will have to monitor his progress during the offseason to have a better idea of his status for next season.

Giants | Hunter Pence, others shut down

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 16:42:03 -0700

San Francisco Giants OFs Hunter Pence (oblique), Nori Aoki (concussion) and Gregor Blanco (concussion) and 1B Brandon Belt (concussion) have all been shut down for the rest of the season.

Fantasy Tip: With the Giants' postseason chances virtually gone, they'll play it safe and rest their injured stars. You can now safely drop all of them in redraft leagues if you haven't already.
