Bigger Dustin Ackley looking to turn on power

Dustin Ackley isn't sure where he'll hit in the Mariners' lineup this year, but the young second baseman has added about 10 pounds since last season and could provide some increased pop wherever manager Eric Wedge pencils him in. Ackley, 24, isn't the biggest guy in the clubhouse, but he checked in at a solid 6-foot-1, 195 pounds last week and has shown solid line-drive power in early batting practice sessions. (MLB.com)
