Aoki suffered a fractured leg in Saturday's game and will likely land on the disabled list, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Aoki's injury occurred when he was hit by a pitch Saturday, causing him to exit the game. He was originally slated to rejoin the lineup Tuesday, but was scratched because of the issue, and now the extent has been revealed. A clear timetable hasn't been set at this point, but it will likely cost him a few weeks at a minimum.

Aoki (leg) has been scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup, Chris Haft of MLB.com reports.

Manager Bruce Bochy included Aoki in his initial lineup, but it seems the outfielder didn't respond especially well to his pre-game activity. Gregor Blanco will step into the lineup to replace Aoki, who suffered a lower-leg contusion as a result of a HBP on Saturday.

Aoki (leg) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Padres, Carl Steward of the Bay Area New Group reports.

The 33-year-old suffered a lower-leg contusion Saturday after being hit by a pitch, but he was able to run on the field prior to Tuesday's game and convince manager Bruce Bochy that he's good to go. Aoki is 23-for-68 (.338 average) so far in June, but he's gone 16 straight games without an extra-base hit and he's stolen just one base so far this month.

Aoki (leg) may be able to pinch-hit in Sunday night's game against the Dodgers, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Aoki is out of the lineup after suffering a leg contusion Saturday, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy hopes the outfielder can rejoin the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Padres. If he's able to pinch-hit Sunday night, Aoki should have a good chance to return Tuesday, following a day off.

Aoki (leg) is out of Sunday's lineup against the Dodgers.

Aoki exited Saturday's game against the Dodgers with a leg contusion, and was expected to miss Sunday's game as a result. Given the left-handed Brett Anderson on the mound for the Dodgers, he may have been out of the lineup regardless. Brandon Belt will slide over from first base to play left field, while Buster Posey will come out from behind the plate and play first and Andrew Susac will catch.

Aoki is doubtful for Sunday's game, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Aoki is considered day-to-day with a leg contusion after x-rays came back negative. Jarrett Parker could see time in the outfield, should Aoki have to miss any games.

Aoki left Saturday's game against the Dodgers with a lower-leg contusion.

Carlos Frias hit Aoki with a pitch to open the game, and while Aoki was able to stay in initially, he appeared hobbled as he came around to score and the Giants decided to take him out. Fortunately, it seems he escaped with just a bruise, but Aoki's status for Sunday's game is up in the air.

Aoki left Saturday's game against the Dodgers in Los Angeles after he was hit by a pitch on his leg, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

Aoki visibly struggled to score on Angel Pagan's sacrifice fly, which prompted his removal. In his place, Gregor Blanco moved to left field, while Justin Maxwell entered to man right. Because the extent of the injury is unknown, consider Aoki questionable for Sunday night's series finale.

Aoki went 3-for-3 Saturday with a walk, a run scored and two RBI.

He's hitting a cool .500 (8-for-16) over his last four games, and Aoki has pushed his slash line back up to .324/.398/.410 on the season. Even with Hunter Pence back in the lineup, Aoki is making a strong case for a spot in the everyday lineup.
