Description: Seattle left fielder Dustin Ackley had three more hits Tuesday at Cleveland, bringing his total to 30 in July.

Hot5/11/2014 7:41:00 PM
Description: Seattle left fielder Dustin Ackley stroked two homers in Sunday's loss to Kansas City.
Insight: Three of his four jacks this season have come in the last two games. Despite a mediocre .264 batting average, Ackley remains an interesting fantasy option because he still has second base eligibility.
 
Cold4/27/2014 1:41:00 PM
Description: Mariners left fielder Dustin Ackley will sit again Sunday against Texas.
Insight: Ackley's bat has fallen on hard times. He's in the midst of an 0-for-18 slump and nothing seems to be working. Cole Gillespie (.000, 0 HR, 0 RBI) will give left field a try on Sunday.
 
Cold4/25/2014 6:07:00 PM

Description: Seattle left fielder Dustin Ackley is not in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against Oakland. SOURCE: Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area
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.
