How does the keeper system work? Can you keep everybody? I ask because you said he was already drafted last season.

When Ackley comes up (probably mid-season), you're not going to get much in the way of fantasy production, so you'd need to be patient for a few years, He'll probably contribute in BAvg and R sooner, though. Think Howie Kendrick with a higher power ceiling.

From 2011-2012, I can't see Ackley doing much more than .280/.360./.400 with a lot of doubles, but not many homers and only 5-10 stolen bases. With Ackley, it's still all about projection for future batting titles.

What other players would be available?

Good luck! ;-D
