Norichika Aoki (groin strain) shagged fly balls in the outfield on Tuesday and appears to be on track in his recovery.

Aoki has been out of action since June 20, but could be on track to make his return to the Royals starting lineup as early as July 10 if all goes well while rehabbing his strained groin. Once back with the team fantasy owners will want to take a wait-and-see approach until he gets back into the swing of things at the plate. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
