Nori Aoki strained his groin during a game against Detroit

The Kansas City Royals placed outfielder Nori Aoki on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday with a left groin strain, the team announced on Twitter.

Aoki, who is hitting .263 in 68 games this season, sustained the injury during the team’s recent series against Detroit. He appeared to aggravate it further while pinch-hitting in Friday night’s 7-5 loss to the Mariners.

The Royals called up Justin Maxwell from the team’s Triple-A affiliate to take Aoki’s spot. Maxwell was hitting .316 in 25 games for the Omaha Storm Chasers. “Excited to be back in KC! Good luck to my @OMAStormChasers teammates,” Maxwell tweeted.
