Mariners | Dustin Ackley tweaks stance

Seattle Mariners 2B Dustin Ackley made tweaks to his readjusted batting stance. Instead of starting with his bat forward, he's facing the pitcher in a more traditional hitting position now. He was encouraged with the results Sunday, April 14. "I'm still trying to accomplish the same things I was working on in spring and early in the season," he said. "It's not like I'm totally changing everything that's going on. I think it's just a little bit of a modification, just to take some timing out of it. Yesterday, and the last at-bat of the day before, I felt really good with it."

Fantasy Tip: Ackley is off to a slow start and is available in most mixed formats because of this. Keep an eye on him to see if he starts to turn things around after making these modifications to his stance. He should continue to be owned in all AL leagues.
