Seattle Mariners 2B Dustin Ackley is taking the day off against a left-handed pitcher Monday, April 29, but manager Eric Wedge also said the team wants to periodically rest Ackley to make sure that his ankle stays healthy. "We want to give him sporadic days off," Wedge said. "But yeah, it's because there's a lefty on the mound. It's not that I won't play him against lefties. He was the odd man out today."
