Mariners' Jackson, Ackley, Morrison not in lineup Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) Mariners first baseman Logan Morrison and outfielders Austin Jackson and Dustin Ackley are not in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Rangers.
The Mariners are slotting Justin Ruggiano in the leadoff slot and starting him in center field. It's the 19th time he's acted as his team's leadoff hitter, and he's posted a .177/.261/.380 line with four home runs and four stolen bases in 79 at-bats while in the No. 1 slot.
Rickie Weeks is getting the start in left field and batting sixth Monday, while Willie Bloomquist is playing first base and batting eighth.
The game is a dead heat in Las Vegas, with both teams having the same odds (-105).
Seth Smith leading off for Mariners on Wednesday
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) The Mariners are going with Seth Smith at leadoff for Wednesday night's game against the Astros.
Smith will serve as Seattle's designated hitter for this game with Nelson Cruz playing right field. Dustin Ackley, who hit leadoff on Tuesday, is playing in left field and is batting seventh. First baseman Logan Morrison is hitting sixth.
Mariners transpose Ackley, Jackson in batting order Tuesday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) The Mariners have flip-flopped the first two hitters in their lineup for the Tuesday night game against visiting Houston. Dustin Ackley is set to lead off for just the second time this season with Austin Jackson batting second.
Perhaps the shakeup will benefit Ackley, who has slowed down following a quick start. He is 2-for-18 after beginning the season on a five-game hitting streak.
Mike Zunino, Brad Miller, Dustin Ackley out of Mariners' lineup
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) The Mariners will be without three regulars in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against Texas.
Catcher Mike Zunino, shortstop Brad Miller and left fielder Dustin Ackley are all out of the lineup, getting rest.
Jesus Sucre gets the start at catcher, just his second appearance of the season. He'll hit ninth in the order.
Willie Bloomquist gets his fourth appearance of the year, starting at short and batting seventh. Justin Ruggiano will play left and bat sixth.
M's move Dustin Ackley to second spot in lineup, Seth Smith to sixth
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/18/15) The Mariners have shuffled their lineup slightly for Saturday’s game against the Rangers as left fielder Dustin Ackley will move up to the second spot for the second time this season while right fielder Seth Smith drops to sixth for the first time this year.
|2014 summary: After the way he finished 2013 for the Mariners, batting .321 with an .870 OPS in his final 41 games, Dustin Ackley entered 2014 as sort of a renewed Fantasy sleeper. He wasn't getting drafted across the board, but because he retained eligibility at second base, he got some late-round looks as a middle infielder. Though he started off well, batting .265 with four home runs and a .759 OPS in his first 40 games, his final numbers were again underwhelming, though he did set career highs in home runs, doubles and RBI.|
Playing time status: The biggest tragedy for Ackley entering 2015 is that he's no longer eligible at second base, having not played a game there last year. Second base is deeper than it used to be, but it's still no comparison to the outfield. And the formats where you have to go deeper into the outfield pool, namely Rotisserie leagues, don't play to his strengths.
2015 outlook: Ackley makes contact at a fairly high rate, but it doesn't translate to an especially high batting average. Since he's not a big home run hitter or base stealer either, he has little hope of being an impact player in Fantasy. Now that he's only eligible in the outfield, he's sort of like a poor man's Nick Markakis, who himself is no slam dunk to be drafted. He has a better chance in Head-to-Head points leagues, though, if only the deeper ones, given his decent peripherals.
