Padres prospect Jankowski suffers broken wrist

WASHINGTON -- Padres outfielder Travis Jankowski, the team's No. 17 prospect according to MLB.com, will miss significant time after suffering a broken bone in his left wrist on Wednesday.

Jankowski, the 44th overall pick in the 2012 First-Year Player Draft, suffered the injury making a nice grab of a fly ball before running headlong into the center-field fence in a game in Frisco.
