San Francisco Giants outfielder Norichika Aoki left Wednesday's game against the Houston Astros after feeling lightheaded, according to the San Jose Mercury News. Aoki played Wednesday for the first time since being hit by a pitch on the helmet over the weekend, but he could be placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list after the latest bout of concussion-like symptoms. Giants manager Brucy Bochy said after the game, "We're treating him at this time for a concussion. He showed symptoms. He'll get re-evaluated and we'll decided what we're going to do." It sounds as though the Giants will not make a decision on whether or not to place Aoki on the disabled list until Thursday, though Ryan Lollis and Jarrett Parker are reportedly options to replace him should he be sidelined. Aoki is batting .304 with four home runs, 24 RBI and 12 stolen bases this season.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Friday that Aoki (leg) could be back in two weeks, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Aoki was reportedly spotted without his protective walking boot Friday, just a little over two weeks after he was diagnosed with a fractured fibula. Bochy suggested the outfielder may not even need a minor league rehab assignment, pointing to Hunter Pence's ability to hit the ground running without a rehab assignment as an example of why it may not be necessary.

Aoki (leg) is out of his cast and has progressed to wearing a walking boot.

It's a step in the right direction for Aoki, who his recovering from a fractured leg, but he's still a ways away from returning to game activity. He'll continue to rehab during the All-Star break, but it seems unlikely he'll be ready to play before the end of the month.
