Quick Hit: Checking In W/ Dustin Ackley

Dustin Ackley lasted just five days and three at bats with the New York Yankees before being placed on the disabled list with a lumbar strain. Ackley was acquired from the Seattle Mariners for outfielder Ramon Flores and right-handed pitcher Jose Ramirez and was held hitless in three at bats before potentially undergoing season ending back surgery. Ackley is not simply willing to give up on the season though and is at least going to attempt to work his way back to the club.

Ackley started baseball activities this week for the first time since the injury. Ackley played catch which is not much but any progress is still progress in my opinion. Ackley was expected to also swing off a tee sometime yesterday and could start swinging at balls thrown from his coaches as soon as today.

Ackley is reportedly pain free and is eyeing a September comeback with the club. Get well soon Dustin!
