MLB News: Mariners Call Up Ackley

| by Off The Record

The Seattle Mariners have finally called up their top prospect. 2B Dustin Ackley has been promoted from Triple-A Tacoma and many think it’s about frickin’ time.

Ackley was the No. 2-overall selection in the 2009 MLB draft and has been hitting .300 with a .418 on-base percentage and .487 slugging percentage through his first 326 at bats down in Triple-A. Yeah, it was time to bring him up.

Don’t expect much power out of the dude, especially in Safeco Field. But he’s probably worth snagging in your fantasy leagues. Especially if you play with a bunch of people who don’t know most players not named Pujols or Halladay.
