Travis Jankowski
Name: Travis Paul Jankowski
Born: Jun 15, 1991 in Lancaster, Pa. USA
College: Stony Brook
Ht.: 6'2" / Wt.: 185 lbs
Bats: L / Throws: R
Drafted in the supplemental 1st round (44th overall) by the San Diego Padres in 2012 (signed for $975,000)
One of the best athletes in this draft class, Jankowski stands out for his speed, bat and defense. He has a live body and stands at 6-foot-2, 190 pounds, and he's a plus runner who plays above-average defense in center field with an average arm. A lefthanded hitter, Jankowski has an unorthodox swing, but it works for him. It's a handsy swing similar to Dustin Ackley's, but Jankowski doesn't have the same power or strength. His five career home runs provide evidence of his well below-average power, but that won't be his game anyway. He has a knack for putting the ball in play and has the speed to beat out infield hits. He had 30 stolen bases in 35 attempts through 47 games and doesn't strike out much (15 in 177 at-bats).
