Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals OF Norichika Aoki (groin) has officially been activated from the disabled list Friday, July 11. In a corresponding move, 2B Christian Colon was optioned to Triple-A Omaha.
Fantasy Tip: Aoki is in the lineup tonight, but he might be involved in a platoon in right field after the All-Star break when Alex Gordon (wrist) returns, since Lorenzo Cain and Jarrod Dyson have been playing so well. A platoon situation for Aoki should limit his ownership to AL-only and deep mixed leagues.

The Kansas City Royals signed free-agent OF Raul Ibanez (Angels) to an undisclosed major league deal Monday, June 30, and also recalled 2B Christian Colon from Triple-A Omaha. In corresponding moves, the team designated INF Pedro Ciriaco and OF Justin Maxwell for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Ibanez figures to be a left-handed option for designated hitter duties and off the bench. Colon will be making his major league debut. He doesn't have much power but makes solid contact; he was hitting close to .300 with Omaha before his call-up. Both players should only be considered in AL-only leagues.
