Dustin Ackley will bat sixth Tuesday against the Red Sox.

It's actually his second straight start out of the No. 6 spot, but he's earned it. Ackley is batting .324 (12-for-37) with three home runs, three doubles, and a triple since returning from the disabled list.

Dustin Ackley smacked a solo home run in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Ackley's shot in the sixth inning proved to be the winning run in what wound up being a blowout victory for the Bombers. The former Mariner has picked things up since the trade to the Yankees, batting .300 with three homers over 18 games.
Sep 27 - 4:36 PM

Dustin Ackley blasted a three-run homer in the sixth inning on Sunday, helping to power the Yankees to an 11-2 victory over their cross-town rival Mets.

The Yankees entered the sixth inning trailing 1-0, but broke the game open by pushing five runs across, capped off by Ackley's towering blast to right field. It was his lone hit in three at-bats in the contest, but it changed the entire complexion of the ballgame. He's now hitting .232/.281/.412 with eight homers and 25 RBI in 98 games between the Yankees and Mariners this season.
Sep 21 - 12:09 AM

Dustin Ackley went 1-for-1 with a pinch-hit double in Friday's loss to the Mets.

Ackley's ninth-inning double was the only extra-base hit the Yankees managed in the contest. In 11 games since joining the Bombers, he's 7-for-19 with two doubles, a homer and three RBI. He should continue to see occasional work as the season closes out, but doesn't play enough for fantasy relevance.
Sep 18 - 10:53 PM

Dustin Ackley went 2-for-2 with a two-run home run and a sacrifice fly as the Yankees shut the Blue Jays out on Sunday.

Ackley opened the scoring with a sacrifice fly in the second inning, then doubled the Yankees' lead to 4-0 with a two-run home run in the fourth off of R.A. Dickey. The home run and RBIs were his first with the Yankees in his seventh game with the club after coming over ahead of the trade deadline. On the season, Ackley is batting .220/.273/.380 with seven home runs and 22 RBI.
Sep 13 - 4:02 PM

Yankees activated INF/OF Dustin Ackley from the 15-day disabled list.

Ackley was acquired from the Mariners at the trade deadline, but he appeared in just two games prior to going down with a right lumbar strain about a month ago. He'll function in a utility role down the stretch.
Sep 1 - 8:29 AM

Dustin Ackley (back) is expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment Thursday with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

Ackley appeared in just two games with the Yankees prior to going down with a right lumbar strain earlier this month. He should be back as a bench player in September.
Aug 25 - 4:01 PM

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Tuesday that Dustin Ackley (back) is expected to miss 20-30 days.

Ackley, who was acquired from the Mariners last week, was placed on the disabled list Tuesday with a right lumbar strain. He was healthy at the time of the trade, so the Yankees have no dispute with the Mariners. Still, it's a tough break. Cashman says that surgery could be an issue if he doesn't show improvement.
Aug 4 - 3:37 PM

Yankees placed OF/INF Dustin Ackley on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 3, with a right lumbar strain.

Ackley was acquired from the Mariners last week and was a potential threat for playing time at second base, but that will have to wait for now. The Yankees called up right-hander Caleb Cotham to take his place on the active roster.
Aug 4 - 1:04 PM

Yankees acquired OF/INF Dustin Ackley from the Mariners for OF Ramon Flores and RHP Jose Ramirez.

The Mariners selected Ackley with the No. 2 overall pick in 2009, but things never quite came together for him in Seattle, as he produced a disappointing .243/.306/.366 batting line over 584 games. The Yankees will have to hope that the change of scenery will make a difference for him. He could be a possibility to get some looks at second base over Stephen Drew.
Jul 30 - 4:57 PM

Jack Curry of YES Network reports that the Yankees are set to acquire Dustin Ackley from the Mariners.

Ramon Flores and Jose Ramirez will be going back to Seattle. Ackley, 27, is batting just .215/.270/.366 with six home runs and 19 RBI over 207 plate appearances this season. While he's another option for second base, he has mostly played in the outfield in 2015.
Jul 30 - 4:27 PM

Dustin Ackley walked and homered in four plate appearances in the Mariners' 10-inning loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

Ackley clubbed a solo home run off of Brandon McCarthy in the fifth inning, one of the four homers the right-hander allowed to the Mariners' offense. Ackley is up to three home runs on the season along with a .353 average in 17 at-bats. Despite the hot start, Ackley has limited fantasy appeal since he doesn't do much other than hit for modest power and he's sharing left field playing time with Rickie Weeks.
Apr 14 - 1:28 AM

Dustin Ackley homered off Jered Weaver in the Mariners' win Monday.

Ackley likes to tease, but this was a nice start after a strong spring in which he hit .347/.407/.531 with just six strikeouts in 49 at-bats. His fantasy upside is limited while hitting low in the Mariners, since he's not much of a basestealer and since he no longer qualifies at second base. Still, if he takes a modest step forward, it'd be a big help to Seattle's chances.
Apr 6 - 7:39 PM

Dustin Ackley swatted his first Cactus League home run as the Mariners fell to the Padres on Sunday.

Ackley victimized Chris Rearick for the two-run shot in the seventh inning, pulling the M's to within three runs at 6-3. He also added a double, finishing the day 2-for-3. Set to serve as the M's primary left fielder, Ackley has had a terrific spring, hitting .366 (15-for-41) with 10 RBI.
