MLB Team Report - Seattle Mariners - INSIDE PITCH One of several young veterans in a make-or-break season, outfielder Dustin Ackley, has joined catcher Jesus Montero and center fielder Franklin Gutierrez as players trying to adjust to position changes as they cling to their ninth life as Mariners hopefuls. Of that group, Ackley, who went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in a 5-4 loss to Tampa Bay on Wednesday, seems to have had the best adjustment to his new role.

OF Dustin Ackley was out of the lineup for the second consecutive game as acting manager Robby Thompson went with the same lineup in Saturday's 8-4 win against the Orioles. Thompson, however, said he will continue to try and get Ackley at-bats throughout the rest of the season because he can also play the infield. "(Ackley) is kind of in transition from the infield to the outfield," Thompson said. "We want to get him left field too. I talked with him, he understands. I wanted to let him know (he wasn't) going to be forgotten."

MLB Team Report - Seattle Mariners - INSIDE PITCH It's become pretty evident what the Mariners would be -- or, more to the point, wouldn't be -- even if they had a healthy 25-man roster at their disposal. Having center fielder Franklin Gutierrez, outfielder Michael Morse and first baseman Justin Smoak available for all 162 games probably wouldn't turn Seattle into a pennant contender.
