The Padres have signed supplemental first-round pick Travis Jankowski for $975,000.
Jankowski was a catalyst in Stony Brook's improbable run to the College World Series, hitting .414/.475/.620 and stealing 36 bases from the leadoff spot. A standout defender in center field, he has plus speed and makes consistent contact at the plate.
Jankowski's bonus was less than the assigned $1,165,800 value for the 44th overall pick. San Diego is now $1,237,200 under budget for its signings in the top 10 rounds, with Florida high school righthanders Walker Weickel (supplemental first round) and Walter Lockett (fourth) still negotiating. Barring a snag, both should be signed by the end of the week.
