Ackley moves toward elite at second base

Friday, September 16, 2011

Ackley has been as good as advertised. Hitting .290, with a .367 OBP, he's also shown solid extra base power for a second sacker (.452 SLG). If we take his production from 76 games this year and double it we'd end up with a second baseman hitting .290 with 12 homers, 68 RBI, 74 runs and eight steals. (Sports Illustrated)
