Mariners' Dustin Ackley to get a lot of playing time this spring
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Mariners outfielder Dustin Ackley will get a ton of playing time this spring, according to MLB.com.

Manager Lloyd McClendon said he wants Ackley to get off to a strong start, and will give the outfielder a lot of at-bats in March. Ackley seemed happy with the arrangement. "I think that's good," Ackley said. "The more at-bats you get, the better your timing gets and the more comfortable you feel. I think everybody wants to get at-bats and get ready."

Ackley had a tough first half of the season in 2014, but seemed to come on strong late. He stressed that being strong mentally should help in 2015. "I just need to stay consistent and don't start pressing if I don't get a hit for a couple games or don't do this or that," he said. "It's not being result-oriented and just going out there and playing and trusting in my swing and my mental standpoint."

The 27-year-old hit .245/.293/.398 over 502 at-bats last year. He's expected to open the season in a platoon role with Rickie Weeks.

Mariners to platoon Rickie Weeks and Dustin Ackley
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The Mariners plan on using a platoon in left field this season, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Manager Lloyd McClendon confirmed the news, saying Rickie Weeks would mostly play left field this season. While that means Dustin Ackley's playing time will be reduced, McClendon said the club wasn't trying to send a message when it signed Weeks. "We’re trying to get better, and Rickie Weeks is a good player that can help us win ballgames," he said. "So I think the combination of both of those guys out there should produce a very productive left field."

Weeks was used as a platoon player last season, and put up strong numbers. The 32-year-old hit .274/.357/.452 over 252 at-bats. 

Ackley, 26, hit .245/.293/.398 over 502 at-bats.
