Shea reports the deal includes a team option for 2016 worth $4 million with potentially $1.5 million additional money in performance bonuses. If the Giants do not exercise their 2016 option, Aoki will receive a $700,000 buyout.
Aoki batted .285 with one home run, 43 RBI and 17 steals last season for the Royals. Before joining the Royals, he played two seasons for the Milwaukee Brewers, hitting .288 in 2012 and .286 in 2013.
