News: Ackley went 3-for-5 with three runs scored Sunday in the Mariners' comeback win over the Red Sox. Impact: RotoWire's Andrew Martinez chronicled Ackley's recent success in his recent AL FAAB article. The overall .256/.306/.400 line for him isn't anything special, yet it marks a level of improvement over last season. Moreover, he has some exploitable splits if you're in a league with enough flexibility to move him in and out of the lineup on a daily basis. His road OPS is .140 points higher than at home (.773 vs. .633), and he hits right-handers much better than lefties (.759 vs. .585).(RotoWire, )
