Dustin Ackley is back. The former #2 overall pick in the 2009 amateur draft is starting to play at his expected potential. This past week has seen the Mariners left fielder return to action. Ackley may have only hit with a .235 BA these past seven games, but he did drive in 4 RBI, score 3 Runs, and smash 2 HR.
Dustin is only owned in 35% of Fantasy Baseball leagues. If he is still available in your league, go grab him right now. Batting in front of Robinson Cano will see plenty of run opportunities and great at at-bats to improve his recent power surge. He is a must add for the final week of the season.
The Mariners wrap up the season against the playoff thirsty Toronto Blue Jays, and an LA Angels team who has already clinched the playoffs. Expect Ackley to play at the top of his game to help the Mariners make the post season. Below are the expected numbers from the Mariners number two spot hitter.
WEEKLY FANTASY PROJECTION: DUSTIN ACKLEY
.300 BA, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 5 RUNS, 0 SB
