Kansas City Royals leadoff man Norichika Aoki has been placed on the 15-day disabled List, the team announced Saturday.

Aoki hurt his left leg on Tuesday in a game against the Detroit Tigers and has appeared in just two games since. He is batting a disappointing .263 this season, his first in the American League since he was acquired in an offseason trade from the Milwaukee Brewers.
