Mariners trainer Rick Griffin said that Dustin Ackley has no restrictions after having bone spurs removed from his left ankle in October.

Ackley had dealt with the nagging condition with college, so he finally decided to do something about it. The 24-year-old is coming off a disappointing sophomore campaign in which he batted just .226/.294/.328 with 12 homers and a .622 OPS.
