Ackley could be back up with the Mariners in about a week to play outfield, the Seattle Times reports.
Ackley played outfield in college, so the transition shouldn't be too difficult. With Nick Franklin holding his own at second base and prospect Brad Miller the assumed future at shortstop, the Mariners are trying to find a spot for Ackley. Since his demotion to Triple-A Tacoma, Ackley is hitting .412/.524/.574 in 68 at-bats. That's promising, though it's obviously too soon to tell if he's conquered his problems at the plate just yet.
