Dustin Ackley just finished taking batting practice for the Javelinas, displaying a nice, compact swing we’ve heard so much about. He sprayed line drives all over the place. Unfortunately, for Mariners fans, he’s not in today’s lineup. Seriously. Being picked No. 2 overall has its limits, I guess.
That’s one difference between the pros and college. Ackley was asked about the last time he was a healthy scratch.
“I can’t remember,” he said. “I’m not sure there’s been one.”
