Mariners Prospect Dustin Ackley Making Transition to Pro Ball

Although Dustin Ackley has gotten off to an uncharacteristically slow start for the Double-A West Tennessee Diamond Jaxx, he remains confident and determined as he enters his first full season of professional baseball. "I am still working, trying to get adjusted. It has definitely been tougher than I thought. Hopefully, I will get this first month under my belt, get adjusted to the changes and start hitting better." (AOL FanHouse)
