Despite falling short of expectations, Nori Aoki hangs on to spot in Royals’ lineup

For Nori Aoki, last week featured a cavalcade of outs amid a comedy of errors. He batted .143 with one extra-base hit in 28 at-bats. Against Houston, he whiffed on an inside pitch, which connected with his left shoulder and caused him to fall. Against Toronto, a foul ball struck him in the groin as he attempted a sliding catch.
