Seattle Mariners 2B Rickie Weeks is expected to be part of a platoon in left field with OF Dustin Ackley, although the projected platoons are not expected to be part of the plan during spring games.
Fantasy Tip: Weeks might have some added fantasy appeal if he becomes eligible in the outfield, as well as second base/middle infield.

Seattle Mariners OF Dustin Ackley is expected to split time in left field with 2B Rickie Weeks, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. However, McClendon doesn't plan on using projected platoons in spring games. For example, Ackley will see playing time against left-handers in camp.
Fantasy Tip: The fact that Ackley is expected to share time in Seattle's outfield in 2015 severely affects his mixed league fantasy value. He's maybe a candidate to round out your outfield depth in really deep mixed leagues, but he should be seen as mainly an AL-only commodity right now.
