RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Calling Ackley's sophomore campaign a disappointment is almost an understatement. Ackley struck out much more than expected, but what was really surprising was his regression in power. His ISO fell to .102 after he posted a .144 mark as a rookie, and in nearly 300 more at-bats than in his rookie season, he had just seven more extra-base hits. Strikeouts were never an issue in the minors, so perhaps he can right that ship this season. And his defense at second base proved top-notch as he was a Gold Glove finalist. He also had offseason surgery to remove bone spurs; hopefully that will help too. Ackley is only 25 this year and entering just his second full season in the bigs, so patience, of course, is warranted. A quick start, though, would go a long way toward easing some concern.

2012

It was not a surprise that the Mariners held off on promoting Ackley last season to delay his service clock. What was a bit surprising was just how easily Ackley seemed to adjust to major-league pitching after his midseason callup. Ackley totaled 29 extra-base hits and 40 walks in 90 games, the latter mark ranking third among rookies despite the limited number of plate appearances. To top it off, he stole six bags without being caught. Ackley hit .304 as late as September 6 but finished the year in a .164 slump over the final 20 games to drop his average to .273. That was the only blemish on an otherwise standout rookie season. Second base is his for the foreseeable future in Seattle.

2011

The No. 2 overall pick in 2009, Ackley will make his major league debut in 2011; the only question is when. The Mariners appear content to start Ackley in Triple-A this year to delay his service clock. A big spring could change that plan, however. After a just-decent season split between Double-A and Triple-A last year, Ackley dominated the Arizona Fall League, garnering MVP honors. He hit .424/.518/.758 with four homers and 10 doubles. He showed great plate discipline throughout the year with 75 walks to 79 strikeouts in 501 at-bats during the regular season and then 26 walks to 11 strikeouts in 66 AFL at-bats. Ackley's power is still developing and his defense needs work, which is why more minor-league seasoning might be a good idea. Expect him in Seattle by summer, though.

2010

The second overall pick in the 2009 draft, Ackley offers modest power, good speed and strong plate discipline and could move through Seattle's system quickly as the organization's best prospect. He played outfield and first base at North Carolina but will begin his pro career at second base, possibly starting 2010 at Double-A. Ackley, who hit .315/.412/.425 at the Arizona Fall League, likely will spend this year in the minors with a possible late-season callup before competing for a roster spot in 2011. Jose Lopez is in the final year of his deal, so there shouldn't be much standing in Ackley's way.
