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.

Jankowski was hitting .254 in his first 67 at-bats with San Antonio of the Texas League. He was placed on the seven-day disabled list, though he could miss in upwards of eight weeks.

Last season, Jankowski hit .286 with a .356 on-base percentage playing for Class A Lake Elsinore of the California League. He had 71 stolen bases for the Storm.

In parts of three professional seasons, Jankowski is hitting .282 with a .341 on-base percentage and 94 steals in 117 attempts in 199 games.
