News: Aoki (groin) isn't expected to be back with the Royals until after the All-Star break, the Kansas City Star reports. Impact: Aoki started a rehab assignment with Double-A Northwest Arkansas on Monday, and has gone 0-for-7 with a strikeout at the plate over his first two games. He'll likely continue to work on his timing in the minors through the All-Star break, with the hopes of being activated near the beginning of the second half. Until then, Raul Ibanez and Jarrod Dyson should see steady playing time in the outfield, especially considering that Alex Gordon (wrist) may not be available until after the break as well.(RotoWire, )
