Dustin Ackley 2B/LF.. SEA 17 Hrs

Dustin Ackley had a monster game in Monday's 5-2 win over the Mets, going 3-for-4 at the dish and robbing a homer in the field.

Ackley's heroics improved Seattle to 53-46, 2 1/2 games up for the second Wild Card slot in the American League. The outfielder had two singles and an RBI double, but his most impressive display came in stealing Travis d'Arnaud's sixth inning would-be-homer. Ackley started heating up right when we started hearing his name in trade rumors; he's batting .360 (18-for-50) in July.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "a lot of teams" have asked the Mariners about Dustin Ackley.

Ackley has hit only .242/.310/.351 across parts of four seasons in the majors, but many still feel that the former top prospect has untapped potential. He wouldn't be the headliner in any deal, but Ackley could turn out to be a nice buy low opportunity as a secondary piece.

Ackley then brought Seager home with a single to right field. It was a big moment for the 26-year-old, who came into Saturday's action with a .204 batting average this month.

Dustin Ackley went 2-for-4 with a three-run double against the Rays on Saturday.

It was Ackley's first multihit game since May 20 and first three-RBI game since Opening Day on March 31. He has had his moments this year, but he's yet to prove that he's worthy of a spot as an everyday left fielder. The Mariners were hoping for more after his strong finish last year and excellent spring. Right now, he's at .242 with just four homers, 23 RBI and 14 walks in 182 at-bats.
