Dustin Ackley will be playing all the outfield positions during his time in the Arizona Fall Leagues. He is playing for the Peoria Javelins and should see a fair amount of playing time over the next 6 weeks.
I don’t think we will see him wearing a Mariner’s uniform next season. If he hits in the minors like he did in college, I could see him being called up for the 2011 season. He does have 4 years of college on his side, which could equate to a fast rise through the minor ranks.
As for Griffey, we may have a decision on his return by Thanksgiving. It would be nice to know one way or the other. If anything, it would remove the distraction and the story line entering Spring training.
