Padres | Travis Jankowski not 100%

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 12:14:17 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Travis Jankowski (ankle) isn't at 100% but is expected to work out Thursday, March 24, and travel to Mexico City this weekend for the team's games, according to manager Andy Green.

Fantasy Tip: Jankowski is a speedy outfielder for the Friars who is likely to serve in some sort of platoon role in center field this year with Melvin Upton. Jankowski is a slap hitter whose main asset is his speed, but he's mostly notable to fantasy owners in NL-only leagues.

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 09:33:16 -0700

Padres | Travis Jankowski leaves after HBP

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 14:27:00 -0700

Updating a previous report, San Diego Padres OF Travis Jankowski (ankle) suffered a left ankle contusion after being hit by a pitch Tuesday, March 22. He had to leave the game on a cart with his ankle wrapped, but did manage to crack a smile as he was helped off the field.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that he was smiling is good news this won't sideline him for any extended absence, but regardless, he's simply a poor fantasy option going into drafts for just about all leagues. He hit .211/.245/.344 in 34 games as a rookie last year, registering just two home runs and 12 RBI in the process. He'll have to go on a run first before owners should even think of adding him. If he does have to miss time, that would benefit Melvin "B.J." Upton.

Padres | Travis Jankowski injured

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 13:54:59 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Travis Jankowski (leg) hurt himself running from first base to third base. Jankowski walked off the field with help and appeared to have a left leg injury.

Fantasy Tip: Jankowski projects as a backup OF behind Jon Jay in center and Matt Kemp in right, but he could miss some time. That would weaken the Padres outfield and possibly trigger some changes. Stay tuned to see how this pans out.

Padres | Melvin Upton finished strong

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 14:44:14 -0800

San Diego Padres OF Melvin Upton Jr. hit .306/.379/.529 with a .908 OPS in his final 85 at-bats of the 2015 season. "I still think I've got a lot left in the tank," Upton said. He'll be fighting for the starting center field job in spring training with OF Travis Jankowski. He's owed $16 million this year and $17 million in 2017.

Fantasy Tip: Neither Upton nor Jankowski provide much pop for fantasy owners, although they can both run and contribute to your stolen base numbers in deep mixed and NL-only universes.

Padres | Wil Myers scratched from lineup

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 19:00:42 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers (undisclosed) was scratched from the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, Sept. 23. OF Travis Jankowski will play center field and bat eighth, while INF Yangervis Solarte will play third base and bat leadoff.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Myers ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) from your fantasy lineups. Jankowski ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is batting just .188 during the month of September and is not a great outfield option in FantasyScore.
