Dustin Ackley led off Tacoma’s game tonight with a home run. Off a lefty. A lefty who has a career 4.47 ERA/4.69 xFIP in the Majors. He’s drawn 10 walks against just one strikeout in the last week. His defense is better than it was a few months ago.
He has nothing left to learn in Triple-A. Call him up already.
Well, it’s a start. Mike Carp was just recalled from Tacoma, with Mike Wilson optioned back to Tacoma to make room for him. Peguero just lost his job, and he’ll likely be the one to go when Ackley is recalled in the next few days.
