Dustin Ackley taking balanced approach to hitting


Seeing Dustin Ackley in the No. 8 spot in the batting order wasn't what most fans were envisioning on opening day a year ago. After all, Ackley finished the 2012 season as the Mariners' leadoff hitter after the July trade of Ichiro. But the Mariners want to remove as much pressure off Ackley as possible this year as he tries to rebound from a campaign in which he hit just .226. (Seattle Times)
