Pair of Mariners recovering from surgery

Seattle Mariners second baseman Dustin Ackley and shortstop Brendan Ryan each underwent successful arthroscopic surgeries on Thursday.

Ackley had a bone spur removed from his left ankle, while Ryan had a bone spur removed from his right elbow.

The second player taken in the 2009 draft, Ackley completed his first full season in the majors in 2012. In 153 games, the North Carolina product batted just .226 with 12 homers and drove in 50 runs.

Ryan finished his second year in Seattle with a .194 batting average and 31 RBI over 141 games.
