DUSTIN ACKLEY RUMORS

Dustin Ackley and Rickie Weeks: The Unlikely Platoon Partners

So Far, So Good For Weeks and Ackley When Seattle Mariner’s GM Jack Zduriencik announced the signing of Rickie Weeks I was a little mystified.  When Big Jack later announced that Weeks would be playing in the outfield, specifically left field in a quasi-platoon role with Dustin Ackley, I really began to scratch my head. It just didn’t make sense to me. Rickie Weeks was adamant...

Mariner Notes: 4/13/15 – Wilhelmsen To DL, Ackley Starts In Center?

After coming off a series win against the Oakland Athletics, the Seattle Mariners head to Los Angeles to face the Dodgers in a 3-game series. Before today’s game, the Mariners made their first roster move of the year, sending right-handed pitcher Tom Wilhelmsen to the 15-day DL with a hyperextended elbow. In place of Wilhelmsen, the Mariners have recalled right-handed pitcher Dominic...

Kyle Seager Can Lead The Seattle Mariners To The Postseason

In 2009, the Seattle Mariners selected Dustin Ackley with the second overall pick in the MLB draft.  Looking back with the benefit of hindsight, one could question the logic of selecting Ackley ahead of arguably the best player in baseball, a 5-tool stud in Mike Trout. But that would be unfair. Several teams passed on Trout before he eventually went to the Anaheim Angels with the...

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.

Seattle Mariners’ offense struggles again

The Seattle Mariners got off to a sizzling start, owning first place in the A.L.

Break on Through to the Other Side Dustin Ackley

Dustin Ackley was the 2nd overall pick in the 2009 Amateur Draft and debuted with the Mariners in 2011, on June 17th. Before his callup, with Tacoma, in the Pacific Coast League, Ackley slashed .303/.421/.487 and continued on at the highest level to the tune of .273/.348/.417. Respectable numbers, especially from the two-bag and Dustin Ackley was on the fantasy radar and a trendy...

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...
