Wed, 26 Aug 2015 19:53:56 -0700

New York Yankees OF Dustin Ackley (back) is ready to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Thursday, Aug. 27.

Yankees | Dustin Ackley to DL

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 08:42:27 -0700

New York Yankees OF Dustin Ackley (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list after an MRI revealed a herniated disc in his back. Ackley received an epidural and is slated to miss 20 to 30 days.

Fantasy Tip: Chris Young ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will remain in the mix and is a matchup play on FantasyScore.

Yankees | Dustin Ackley to fill utility role

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 11:32:19 -0700

New York Yankees OF Dustin Ackley is slated to fill a utility role similar to what 1B Garrett Jones did.

Fantasy Tip: The Yankees designated Jones for assignment Friday, so Ackley ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) will take his roster spot. Ackley was hitting just .215 with six home runs and 19 RBI with the Seattle Mariners, so he won't be high up on anyone's fantasy wish list. However, he is more versatile than Jones and could see significant playing time at second base if Stephen Drew continues to struggle. He'll remain nothing more than a desperation sleeper play on FantasyScore, though.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley sent to NY

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:03:07 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley was traded to the New York Yankees Thursday, July 30, in exchange for OF Ramon Flores and SP Jose A. Ramirez.

Fantasy Tip: The trade of Ackley to New York doesn't really have earth-shattering consequences in Seattle, but it does solidify the fantasy value of Franklin Gutierrez ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) and Seth Smith ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) in much deeper leagues.

Yankees | Dustin Ackley acquired by Yanks

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 13:40:16 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley was acquired by the New York Yankees Thursday, July 30, in exchange for OF Ramon Flores and SP Jose A. Ramirez.

Fantasy Tip: With Stephen Drew not cutting it at the keystone, Ackley ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) could immediately become the team's starting second baseman. Ackley didn't fare much better with Seattle (.215/.270/.366 with six home runs in 186 at-bats), but this trade could give him everyday playing time, and the move to a short porch in right field in the Bronx means his fantasy value is on the rise.

Mariners | Logan Morrison out of the lineup

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 12:39:16 -0700

Seattle Mariners 1B Logan Morrison is not in the starting lineup against Detroit Tigers SP Anibal Sanchez Wednesday, July 22. 1B Mark Trumbo will start at first base and is batting sixth, while OF Dustin Ackley will start in left field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Morrison ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the near future. Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting .296 with six RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners looking to spend money at other positions on FantasyScore.

Mariners | Mark Trumbo sitting out

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 12:08:15 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Mark Trumbo is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Masahiro Tanaka Friday, July 17. OF Dustin Ackley will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Trumbo ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting .381 with one home run and five RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Mariners | Austin Jackson still sidelined

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 15:18:37 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (back) remains out of the lineup Friday, July 10. OF Dustin Ackley is starting in center field and hitting ninth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago.

Fantasy Tip: We don't recommend using Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) as a sleeper on FantasyScore tonight against a southpaw. He has one hit in 10 at-bats against them this year with two K's. Santiago is also limiting lefty sticks to a .152/.220/205 slash line in 2015.

Mariners | Dustin Ackley starting Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 11:26:47 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley is in the lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt Sunday, July 5, batting and playing left field.

Fantasy Tip: Ackley ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is hitting just .197 overall but is 6-for-20 (.300) this season against the A's, with a home run and four RBIs. If you're desperate for cap relief in FantasyScore, you may want to consider using him as an inexpensive outfield option.
