Mariners like Dustin Ackley's bat, defense

The Seattle Mariners were attracted to Dustin Ackley by his magic bat. But now that they see the former North Carolina star's work ethic when it comes to defense, they are excited about the 2009 No. 2 overall draft selection all over again. He is headed to AA West Tennessee this season but is showing that could be a very temporary situation. Ackley has looked smooth in the field and typically at home at the plate. (KNDU.com)
