Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Mariners | Dustin Ackley expected to get some PT

Seattle Mariners OF/2B Dustin Ackley should get his chances to play after his call-up on Tuesday, June 25. OF Michael Saunders is struggling, OF Jason Bay (hamstring) just recovered from a mild hamstring issue, and OFs Raul Ibanez and Endy Chavez are 41 and 35 years old, respectively. "He's going to play," manager Eric Wedge said. "We're going to get him in there. We'll keep working him in the outfield, but you might see him in the infield if we need him there." The manager also said that Ackley has earned his return to the majors based on his performance with the bat at Triple-A Tacoma since his demotion.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like the M's are still going to have a hard time fitting him in there, so Ackley may have to make the most of his opportunities. Of course, if something clicked while he was on the farm, he may just do so. Seattle is looking for a reason to commit to him, so Ackley is worth stashing in 15-team mixed leagues and those deeper, just in case.
