Dustin Ackley played in his first spring game Friday

Angels Outfielder Dustin Ackley played in his first game on Friday against the Padres. Ackley was announced last May that his season would be coming to an end, as he would be undergoing shoulder surgery. Ackley played 28 games for the Yankees last season and was signed to the Angels on a Minor League deal in February.

Fantasy Impact

Ackley batted DH on Friday and grounded out in his one and only at-bat. Ackley told the media that he was not quite ready yet to play on defense and does not want to rush the rehabbing process at all. Ackley said he is hoping to be ready by opening day but it is no guarantee whether he will be on the Angels lineup or not.

Dustin Ackley could require season-ending surgery

Yankees OF Dustin Ackley could require season-ending surgery to repair the torn labrum in his shoulder.

Fantasy Impact

It's been a rough season, and likely a lost one, for Ackley, who will be facing an extended stretch on the disabled list no matter what path is chosen. Prior to the injury, he limped to an OPS of only .390 with no HRs or SBs in 2016.

Dustin Ackley to get spot start

Dustin Ackley will start at first base on Tuesday, hitting fifth in place of Mark Teixiera. Ackley has also started in the outfield this season, building his value as a utility player.

Fantasy Impact

Ackley may have value with his multi-positional eligibility, but he has yet to hit enough to be truly valuable to the Yankees. Acquired at the trade deadline last season, Ackley has played all over the infield and corner outfield, a poor man's Ben Zobrist, but he only has a. 347 OPS in 36 plate appearances this season. Keep in mind that he had a .982 OPS in 57 plate appearances with the Yankees in 2015, but don't expect too much out of Ackley.

Dustin Ackley makes his mark for the Yankees

Dustin Ackley was the offensive star for the Yankees on Sunday, finishing 2-for-2 with a run scored, home run, and three RBI for his first RBI since being acquired from the Mariners on July 31.

Fantasy Impact

Ackley is only 4-for-14 with the Yankees with a double and a home run, but does give eligibility all over the field, playing 1B on Sunday. He only has a .653 OPS for the season, but can get at bats all over the field, especially with Mark Teixeira's injury, and has a .364 batting average in limited at-bats in September.
