Ackley a 2B?

Postby cardinal1975 » Sat Nov 21, 2009 7:34 pm

This should be a good move for him if he can handle it defensively and should boost his fantasy value.

Yeah, he could easily be a top 5 MLB 2B in the future if he sticks there. We'll see.

If scouts think Ackley can stay at 2B, it probably puts him in the top 10 early next year.

Jason Kipinis is another OF from this draft that will try 2B in the spring and could really move up the rankings if it works out.

If Ackley was a 2B that would increase his value dramatically.

This makes me speculate a Jose Lopez trade as Lopez is signed through 2010 (with options in 2011). But coming off of a career year this might be the highest his value could get in an M's uniform. Which would be great for Lopez who OPSed .883 on the road last year.

The talk is that Lopez will move to 1B.
