      Dustin Ackley takes over as Yankees' primary second baseman

      Yankees outfielder Dustin Ackley went 1 for 4 with his ninth home run of the season in Sunday's win over the White Sox. With Stephen Drew suffering from a possible concussion, Ackley has taken over the primary second base duties. The 27-year-old has been swinging a hot bat since being activated off the DL in early September, slashing .324/.350/.703 with three homers in the month. He figures to see most of the playing time at the keystone the rest of the way.

      Yankees put OF Dustin Ackley on DL, recall RP Cotham

      The Yankees placed newly acquired utility man Dustin Ackley on the 15-day disabled list with a herniated disk, per the team, and recalled reliever Caleb Cotham from Triple-A to take his place on the roster. Ackley has played in two games with the Yankees since being traded from Seattle on July 30, and was hitless in three at-bats. Per Newsday, Yankees GM Brian Cashman said the injury was a case of "bad timing" and that Ackley would miss a minimum of 20-to-30 days. "He was a hot potato without realizing he was hot; the hot potato fell on our lap," Cashman said. Cotham has appeared in one game with the Yankees this season and is 5-2 in 28 games between Double-A and Triple-A this season.

      Yankees trade two prospects to Mariners for OF Dustin Ackley

      The Mariners have finally given up on left fielder Dustin Ackley, whom they have traded to the Yankees for outfield prospect Ramon Flores for right-handed reliever Jose Ramirez, per CBSSports Baseball Insider Jon Heyman Ackley has been a disappointment since his arrival in the big leagues, but his left-handed power bat could produce considering the short right-field porch at Yankee Stadium. He owns a poor .215/.270/.306 slash line this season and has just two hits in his last 15 at-bats. Ramirez, who has pitched in 11 games for the Yankees over the past two seaons, boasts a 2.90 ERA with 56 strikeouts in 49 innings this year at Triple-A Scranton-Wilkes Barre. Flores has compiled a .286/.377/.417 slash line for the same team in 2015.

      Mariners OF Dustin Ackley heating up - again - with the weather

      Mariners outfielder Dustin Ackley doesn't know why he heats up with the weather. But if it's July, he must be surging. Ackley has sent his average soaring from .184 to .222 since June 21. That's nothing new. He batted .194 through July 5 in 2015 and .301 thereafter. He batted .214 through June last year and .274 thereafter. He can't figure it out. "It's just one of those things," he told the Tacoma News Tribune. "It's weird. I can't really explain it. I wish I could explain it." This year is different, however, in that his poor start has landed him a part-time role for the first time. "That was definitely a tough thing," he said. "You come to the park, and you're feeling good, and you're not in there. I think that can wear on you if you let it. I think I kind of let that get the best of me early on."
