Mariners | Dustin Ackley a work in progress

Seattle Mariners 2B Dustin Ackley could hit seventh or eighth in the lineup to start the year. Ackley is hitting .292 this spring but is still getting used to the timing of his swing changes this offseason. He has just one extra-base hit in camp and hasn't squared the ball up that much.

Fantasy Tip: Hitting Ackley lower in the order to start the year would benefit him and allow him to see better pitches as he gains comfort with his new swing mechanics. Ackley is a sleeper option at the keystone and will come at a pretty cheap price in most drafts.
