Mariners | Dustin Ackley made adjustments to swing

Seattle Mariners 2B Dustin Ackley is now starting with his shoulders almost facing the pitcher, and he slides them back to be parallel with the plate when a pitch is in motion. "It just puts me in good hitting positions," he said. "Last year, with the old stance I had, there was no separation, my hands, and everything. I worked on it a lot this offseason just to get that feel of maybe what it used to feel like, as opposed to last year, when I didn't really know what was going on. I think that was important for me this offseason."
