Video: Dustin Ackley adjusting to the outfield

By 710Sports.com staff

Dustin Ackley is back in the Mariners’ lineup for tonight’s game against Texas after injuring his thumb while diving for a fly ball on Saturday.

As Shannon Drayer discusses in the video above, learning how to protect himself from such injuries is part of Ackley’s transition from second base to center field.

First pitch is 5:05. The game can be heard on 710 ESPN Seattle, and you can also follow along with our live gametracker.

Here is the Mariners’ lineup:

Endy Chavez, RF
Nick Franklin, 2B
Raul Ibanez, LF
Kendrys Morales, DH
Kyle Seager, 3B
Justin Smoak, 1B
Dustin Ackley, CF
Mike Zunino, C
Brad Miller, SS

Joe Saunders, SP
