Aoki has been performing baseball activities for a few days and not experienced any concussion-related symptoms, so he's ready to go. He'll miss the Giants' series in St. Louis but will be ready to roll later this week when they head to Pittsburgh.

Giants placed OF Nori Aoki on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Ryan Lollis has been recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move. Aoki was hit in the head by a pitch during Sunday's game against the Cubs and has felt lightheaded ever since. Concussion symptoms can tend to linger, so there's a chance he could be out longer than just the seven days.
Aug 13 - 7:26 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said there's a "good possibility" Nori Aoki will be placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list.

Aoki left Wednesday's game with lightheadedness, and it appears he's feeling the effects of being hit in the head by a pitch during Sunday's game against the Cubs. He was replaced Wednesday by Justin Maxwell. The club should make a move official before Thursday's game at the latest.
