Nori Aoki expected to rejoin Giants on Thursday

Nori Aoki landed on the 7-day concussion disabled list last week, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy told Alex Pavlovic of CSNBayArea.com that the outfielder is on track to return when he’s first eligible on Thursday.

Aoki passed a concussion test after he was hit in the helmet by a pitch on August 9, but he was forced to leave a game last Wednesday because of lightheadedness. The good news is that Bochy said Monday that he now feels “back to normal.” Aoki did some sprints Monday and was also expected to take some swings.

Aoki, who just recently returned from a fractured right fibula, is batting .302/.368/.387 with four home runs, 24 RBI, and 12 stolen bases over 80 games this season.

On Monday, the Brewers unveiled a familiar logo and new jerseys to help celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. They kickstarted it with a video:

Then they showed various members of the club, including Ryan Braun and Keston Hiura, modeling their new uniforms, which featured the familiar ball-in-mitt logo.

The Brewers are not the only team to to back to a classic. The Padres are bringing back the brown as well. Two very good choices.
