Nori Aoki (leg) is expected back Monday night.

Aoki, who's been on the disabled list since late June with a fractured right fibula, had a successful checkup with the Giants' medical staff on Sunday. The 33-year-old outfielder was off to an excellent start this season before the injury, batting .317/.383/.385 in 67 games. He returns to a hot Giants team that has moved within one game of Dodgers at the top of the National League West standings.

Nori Aoki (leg) is set to undergo a medical evaluation on Monday, and if all goes well he will be able to return to the Giants starting lineup on Monday.

Aoki has been sidelined since late June due to a fractured leg. Before landing on the disabled list, he was hitting a stellar .317/.383/.385 with two homers and 19 RBI in 67 games.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Friday that Nori Aoki (leg) still needs at least two additional minor league rehab games.

The Giants had hoped to have him back in the fold on Friday, but Bochy admitted that Aoki wasn't quite ready to return just yet. He'll likely remain on his rehab assignment through the weekend and rejoin the club for Monday's series opener against the Brewers.

Nori Aoki (leg) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as Friday.

Aoki will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday and will play five innings in that game. He's then slated for seven frames on Wednesday and that could be all he needs before being activated after a day off Thursday. Aoki has missed nearly a month of action with a small fracture of his right fibula.
Jul 20 - 8:41 PM

Nori Aoki (leg) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday.

A CT scan over the weekend showed that Aoki's right fibula was 80 percent healed, and evidently that's enough for him to be game-ready. It's unclear how many contests he'll need before being activated, but it shouldn't be too many. It would seem like Aoki has a shot to be back in the Giants' lineup by this weekend.
Jul 20 - 7:19 PM

Nori Aoki had a CT scan Saturday that showed his fractured right fibula is 80 percent healed.

Aoki remains on track to return to the Giants' active roster before the end of July. He is expected to play in three minor league rehab games. The 33-year-old outfielder is batting .317 with a stellar .383 on-base percentage in his first season with San Francisco.
Jul 18 - 6:43 PM

Nori Aoki (leg) is set to run and take batting practice on Thursday for the first time since going on the disabled list.

Giants skipper Bruce Bochy indicated that the outfielder made nice strides in his recovery from a fractured right fibula over the All-Star break. It sounds as though he'll be able to skip a minor league rehab assignment and rejoin the Giants lineup as soon as he feels ready.
Jul 16 - 11:01 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Friday that Nori Aoki (leg) may not need a minor league rehab assignment before rejoining the Giants.

The team has been impressed by what Hunter Pence has been able to do without a rehab assignment, so they're considering the idea with Aoki as well. If that's the case, he could be ready to rejoin the Giants in two weeks.
Jul 10 - 8:28 PM

Nori Aoki has had the cast removed from his fractured right fibula.

He's had it replaced with a walking boot. It will be a little while before Aoki is cleared to run again, but the Giants are expecting him back within two weeks after the All-Star break.
Jul 8 - 2:00 PM

Nori Aoki (leg) is expected to be ready for activation from the disabled list within two weeks after the All-Star break.

Aoki suffered a small fracture of his right fibula late last month. He hasn't resumed baseball activities yet, but it should be a quick turnaround once he does.
Jul 7 - 7:55 PM

Giants placed OF Nori Aoki on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right fibula.

It was initially called a bruise, but further testing showed the break. Aoki will be in a cast for the next two weeks. Travis Ishikawa has been promoted from Triple-A in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
Jun 24 - 4:43 PM

The Giants revealed after Tuesday's game that Nori Aoki has a fractured fibula and will be in a cast for two weeks.

The Giants thought it was just a bruise when he was hit by a pitch Saturday, but a small fracture was found. While this isn't a major injury for Aoki, it's certainly costly for the Giants with Hunter Pence also out. They might start looking for some outside outfield help. For now, they'll likely bring back Jarrett Parker and have him platoon with Justin Maxwell in right, while Gregor Blanco mans left field.
Jun 24 - 2:38 AM

Nori Aoki (ankle) was a late scratch from Tuesday's lineup.

Aoki left Saturday's contest with a bruised right ankle after being hit by a pitch. It appears he's still sore, so he'll miss a second straight game. Justin Maxwell entered the lineup in his place, with Gregor Blanco sliding from right to left field.
Jun 23 - 9:00 PM

Nori Aoki (leg) is back in the Giants' lineup Tuesday.

Aoki sat out Sunday after leaving Saturday's game when he was hit by a pitch on his lower leg. The veteran outfielder sports a .317/.383/.385 batting line with two homers and 12 steals this season.
