Just a quickie this morning to update two things.
First, in case you missed it, Dustin Ackley was optioned to Tacoma yesterday. Look for Ackley to play daily in Tacoma for about two months as he continues to refine his defensive skills at second base while deftly avoiding MLB service time.
Second, I’ll be in Peoria for spring training tomorrow – look for blog updates all weekend. Here is my tentative schedule:
- Friday afternoon: In N Out (#1 priority) then Triple-A game, Tacoma vs. Tucson (SD) in Peoria.
- Friday evening: Meet with Tacoma coaching staff, or Mariners/Dodgers MLB night game in Peoria if Tacoma coaches are working it.
- Saturday afternoon: Triple-A game, Tacoma at Omaha (KC) in Surprise!
- Saturday evening: Meet with Tacoma coaches if it didn’t happen on Friday.
- Sunday daytime: minor league intersquad games and MLB game vs. Texas in Peoria
- Sunday evening: Open. Check out Talking Stick? CAZ? NCAA Hoops? Salty’s?
- Monday daytime: Triple-A game, Tacoma vs. Omaha (KC) in Peoria.
- Monday evening: fly home.
I hope to have details of what I see in the Triple-A games, updates on Tacoma roster possibilities, and amateur photography. Check back over the weekend.
