Ackley, Severino lead Yanks, trim wild-card magic number to 3

NEW YORK — Dustin Ackley was a surprise trade-deadline acquisition by New York, arriving in a season-long slump with few credentials to support the early hype of a No. 2 overall draft pick. Then he got hurt. Three weeks back from a stint on the disabled list, Ackley has hit his way into the conversation for a spot on the Yankees' playoff roster, especially with an ailing Stephen...

Yankees unveil startling new concept: A hitting secondbaseman who can be replaced in late innings for defense

On August 1, when Brian Cashman - Sports Illustrated candidate for the future Hall of Fame - traded a pair of promising lugnuts to Seattle for Dustin Ackley, the saddest part of the deal was finding that Ackley no longer played 2B. Over the last two years - since Robbie Cano jogged into Starbucks City - Ack had been banished to outposts of the Mariner realm where you'd expect to...

What we think about, when we think about Dustin Ackley

One of these days, Dustin Ackley - the 1B-OF who came over in Cashman's trade deadline deal-making ibogaine-delirium, and who was supposed to replace Garrett Jones, "the glove of stones," but who suddenly reported back problems, which the honest-as-the-day-is-long Seattle Mariners brain trust knew ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about, when they dealt his ass like a basket of peach pits...

Yankees: Why Dustin Ackley?

Yankees get Dustin Ackley from Mariners for two minor leaguers

The Seattle Mariners didn’t figure to make too much noise before Friday’s trade deadline. But the team did finally cut loose a top draft pick that just never developed into the star he was projected to be. Dustin Ackley was traded to the New York Yankees on Thursday in exchange for two minor leaguers. The 27-year-old was Seattle’s No. 1 draft pick (selected second overall)...

Yankees finally get Dustin Ackley

The Yankees had been chasing Dustin Ackley for a while. I don’t know exactly how long the pursuit had gone on, but I remember rumors around the 2013 winter meetings, and they’ve popped up from time to time since. Somewhere, in the back of his mind, Brian Cashman maintained his interest in Ackley, and now […]

Mariners Rumors: Dustin Ackley drawing interest

The Seattle Mariners have surprised many people this season. Even after signing Robinson Cano to an extravagant deal, not many people predicted Seattle to be a contender in the supposedly very strong AL West division, which included powerhouses in the Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers, and a sleeper in the Los Angeles Angels. The Mariners are 52-45 and are currently in place to...

Restored confidence has Seattle hopeful in Ackley

When Dustin Ackley came out of college as the No. 2 pick in the 2009 amateur draft, the one thing the Seattle Mariners were certain about was the kid could hit. His position on the field, though, was always in question - was he a second baseman, an outfielder? - but no one doubted the purity of Ackley's swing. Early in his career, the results followed. And then Ackley started thinking...
