Norichika Aoki was perfect Sunday going 2-for-2 with 3 stolen bases, two walks, two runs scored, and a RBI in the Royals 7-4 win over the Giants Sunday at Kauffman Stadium.
Aoki hit his first home run of the season last week and has been picking up multi-hit games with some regularity. His season line now sits at .267/.339/.336 with 13 stolen bases. He's a been a disappointment for fantasy purposes. ANALYST:
Eduardo Rodriguez will start Thursday in Texas for the Red Sox.
The Red Sox were considering bringing Rodriguez up in late April when Wade Miley was struggling but now they may consider him a potential replacement for the nightmare that is Joe Kelly. He'll start Thursday to stay on his regular throwing schedule and this may only be a spot start/audition, but keep an eye on him especially if there's a chance he joins the rotation.

Wil Myers (wrist) is improving but not close to returning.
It's not so much that he isn't close to returning, it's that the Padres are being very cautious with him and have not set a timetable for him to start swinging a bat. Once he does start, it might not be too long before he lands on a rehab assignment. The team is hoping for an early-to-mid June return, but we'll just have to wait and see. Analysis: Howard Bender
