Description: Seattle left fielder Dustin Ackley has gone 3-for-18 (.167) with five Ks against Rangers ace Yu Darvish.
Insight: Ackley was sent to the minors in May last year and revived his career after being recalled by hitting .301 with a .795 OPS in his last 61 games. He has started out by batting .295 with one homer, seven RBI and an .803 OPS in 12 games this season, but he's never had success against Darvish.

Insight: This will be Ackley's first absence of the season. Willie Bloomquist (.500, 0 HR, 0 RBI) will hold down the fort in left field on Sunday.
 
Hot3/14/2014 3:58:00 PM
Description: Mariners outfielder Dustin Ackley is hitting .452 this spring with seven extra base hits and a 1.259 OPS.
Insight: Ackley batted .304 after the All-Star break last season and this could be the sign that fantasy owners need assuring them that the second half of 2013 wasn't a fluke. With the offseason addition of 2B Robinson Cano, Ackley should be a full-time outfielder this season.
 
Hot8/31/2013 4:39:00 PM
Description: Mariners outfielder Dustin Ackley is hitting .439 over his last 19 games.
Insight: Ackley went 4-for-5 with four RBI Friday and is 29-for-66 with six doubles, two triples, two homers and nine RBI since Aug. 7. The former second-overall pick failed to progress after a solid rookie season and was hitting just .213 prior to this stretch, but a hot streak like this cannot be ignored.
 
6/30/2013 2:50:00 PM
Description: Mariners 2B/OF Dustin Ackley (thumb) is hoping to return to the lineup Tuesday, according to Greg Johns of MLB.com.
Insight: Ackley suffered a sprained thumb Saturday night, but he said he was feeling better Sunday and that the injury was not as bad as he initially thought.
 
6/29/2013 11:27:00 PM
Description: Mariners 2B/OF Dustin Ackley suffered a sprained left thumb Saturday against the Cubs.
Insight: Ackley's X-rays come back negative, according to MLB.com's Greg Johns. The Mariners hope he'll only miss a few games, so they won't make a roster move yet. Ackley went 1-for-3 with one RBI Saturday and is 1-for-7 since being recalled from the minors.
 
6/25/2013 7:41:00 PM
Description: The Mariners have recalled Dustin Ackley from Triple-A.
Insight: Ackley was sent down after batting .205 with a .516 OPS in 45 games, but he hit .365 with two homers, 14 RBI and a 14/19 K/BB in 25 games with Tacoma. Ackley is expected to play corner outfield with second base currently being occupied by Nick Franklin, but we need to see him have success at the major league level again before we recommend him in fantasy leagues.
 
5/28/2013 5:00:00 PM
Description: Seattle second baseman Dustin Ackley was demoted to the minors Monday, opening the door for top hitting prospect Nick Franklin to be promoted to the big league roster.
Insight: Ackley has not developed after an intriguing 90-game cameo in 2011. He hit .226 last year and owns a .205 average and just one homer this season. The Mariners also have not had any production from shortstop, so Franklin should be in the lineup every day and should be owned in most formats.
 
5/15/2013 12:07:00 PM
Description: Seattle second baseman Dustin Ackley is 5-for-10 against Yankees right-hander Phil Hughes with a 1.200 OPS.
Insight: Ackley has not developed after an intriguing 90-game cameo in 2011. He hit .226 last year and owns a .231 average in 2013. This is a favorable matchup, but overall we don't see much of a future for the second overall pick of the 2009 draft.
 
5/4/2013 8:06:00 PM
Description: Seattle second baseman Dustin Ackley launched a grand slam Saturday against the Blue Jays.
Insight: Ackley has not developed after an intriguing 90-game cameo in 2011. He hit .226 last year and owns a .255 average in 2013. The grand slam was his first home run of the season.
 
4/3/2013 6:03:00 PM
Description: Seattle second baseman Dustin Ackley is not in Wednesday's starting lineup against Oakland lefty Tommy Milone.
Insight: Ackley had a disappointing .226/.294/.328 slash last season and started off 0-for-8 this year.
 
10/4/2012 12:07:00 PM
Description: Seattle second baseman Dustin Ackley will have surgery to remove bone spurs from his left ankle on Thursday.
Insight: This won't affect Ackley's status for Spring Training. Ackley (.226, 12 HR, 50 RBI) led the team in runs scored this season by touching home 84 times in 153 games played.
 
9/24/2012 10:00:00 AM
Description: Mariners second baseman Dustin Ackley won't be available for Tuesday's game against the Angels. Ackley is battling a stiff neck.
Insight: Ackley (.231, 12 HR, 50 RBI) missed both weekend games. We are expecting much more from the well-hyped second-year player, but he's just 24-years-old and still has plenty of time to mature into the hitter we all want to see.
 
9/22/2012 8:01:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Dustin Ackley won't be available for Saturday's game against Texas. Ackley is battling a stiff neck.
Insight: Ackley (.231, 12 HR, 50 RBI) is expected to be back in the lineup Sunday for the series finale. Tonight, Kyle Seager (.256, 18 HR, 81 RBI) will slide over to second base with Alex Liddi (.230, 3 HR, 10 RBI) getting the start at third base.
 
Cold7/22/2012 2:11:00 PM
Description: Seattle second baseman Dustin Ackley did not start Sunday against the Rays.
Insight: Ackley is just 1-for-19 (.053) in his last four games so he could probably use a day off to regroup. So far, it's been a tough season for the 24-year-old (.226, 6 HRs, 27 RBIs in 90 games).
 
7/15/2012 3:30:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman won't be on the field for the rubber match of Seattle's three-game series with Texas on Sunday.
Insight: Ackley went 1-9 in the first two games of the series. He hasn't made much noise in fantasy so far this season (.230, 5 HRs, 25 RBIs in 84 games) and given the lack of help around him in the Mariners' lineup, we wouldn't expect much out of Ackley in the season's second half either.
 
6/20/2012 10:20:00 AM
Description: Mariners young second baseman Dustin Ackley has already faced Trevor Cahill 10 times in his career and is batting .500 with a 1.683 OPS in the matchup.
Insight: Ackley came up in mid-season last year with much fanfare, but hasn't yet backed it up with his performance. He was recently dropped from the top of the lineup to seventh in the order and at this point should only be on a fantasy roster in keeper leagues. For Wednesday, however, he might be a viable option.
 
6/15/2012 7:02:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Dustin Ackley has been dropped to seventh in the order Friday.
Insight: Ackley is hitting just .243 with a .666 OPS this season, including .205/.300/.250 in June. If he doesn't pick it up within the next two weeks you can safely cut him loose.
 
5/28/2012 6:18:00 PM
Description: Dustin Ackley is out of the lineup on Monday.
Insight: Ackley has only missed one game this season so Seattle is just giving him another night off. It's convenient because Ackley has never gotten a hit against Matt Harrison, who will be on the mound for Texas tonight.
 
5/22/2012 10:00:00 AM
Description: Seattle second baseman Dustin Ackley is still looking for his first hit off Texas starter Matt Harrison after 11 at-bats.
Insight: The highly touted Ackley, who was the second pick of the 2009 MLB draft behind Stephen Strasburg, is struggling to live up to expectations. So far this season he's batting just .257 with a .695 OPS.
