Seattle Mariners 2B Dustin Ackley may lead off to start the 2013 season if his bat proves solid during spring training. Manager Eric Wedge envisions Ackley as a prototypical leadoff hitter. There has also been some speculation about moving Ackley into the outfield, if only because several top prospects play second and moving Ackley could mean a hot prospect comes up.
