Dustin Ackley sent to Double-A

The Seattle Mariners have sent second overall draft choice Dustin Ackley to the Double-A West Tenn Diamond Jaxx, where the impressive 22-year-old will likely begin his first full professional season. In August, the Mariners and Ackley agreed on a five-year major league contract worth $7.5 million. Seattle has since tried the sweet-swinging former first baseman and outfielder at North Carolina at second base. (Raleigh News & Observer)
