|Profile: Aoki's rookie season way back in 2010 was a revelation. Double-digit power and 30 steals to go with serviceable walks and a microscopic strikeout rate plays in all leagues. In the seasons that'd follow, he'd manage to improve upon his plate discipline, striking out even less at the expense of his power. More importantly, this past season at 34 years old, Aoki stole just seven bases, marking the fourth consecutive year his stolen-base total dropped. Now with the Astros, Aoki appears destined to cement himself a part-time player, though having come to the plate fewer than 500 times in consecutive seasons, he may have already done so. So long as the Astros' corner outfield bats stay healthy, there's no real fantasy value here anymore. (Rylan Edwards)|
The Quick Opinion: Aoki is a part-time player who, at best, represents a platoon bat in case of injury. His once promising career has certainly fizzled.
