Mariners OF Dustin Ackley remains on course with ankle rehab
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/22/15) Mariners outfielder Dustin Ackley visited an ankle specialist in the offseason, but was told to stay on the same offseason recovery program, reports the Tacoma News Tribune.
My plan is to play the hell out of him in spring training," said McClendon on getting Ackley over his slow starts, per 710 AM ESPN Radio in Seattle. "Either he'll get tired or I will."
Ackley was limited to 143 games last season due to bone spurs in his left ankle. He hit .245/.293/.398 with 14 homers and 65 RBI over 502 at-bats last season.
Report: Mariners, Austin Jackson agree to $7.7-million deal
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) The Mariners have avoided arbitration with outfielder Austin Jackson by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $7.7 million, the Seattle Times reports.
The team was able to avoid arbitration with five players in all Friday by agreeing to the terms of one-year contracts for each player. First basman Logan Morrison is scheduled to make $2.725 million with incentives for reaching 500 and 600 plate appearances. Outfielder Dustin Ackley will take in $2.6 million as well as another $50,000 bonus for reaching 500 plate appearances.
Outfielder Justin Ruggiano, who was acquired from the Cubs earlier this offseason, will make $2.5 million and can earn another $20,000 if he reaches 375 plate appearances. Pitcher Charlie Furbush will earn $1.3 million.
Mariners' Dustin Ackley to undergo further evaluation for ankle issue
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/1/14) Mariners outfielder Dustin Ackley is expected to visit with a specialist to determine a course of action he might take to deal with a nagging left ankle injury, according to MLB.com.
|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.
