Padres outfielder Travis Jankowski is not in the lineup Friday against the Rockies. Jankowski has been seeing somewhat regular starts in center field, but despite collecting four hits in his last three games to raise his average to .222, he'll get his second day off in a row. Melvin Upton will get the start in center field in his place and bat sixth.

Padres OF Travis Jankowski gets the call from Triple-A
Following the trade of Will Venable, the Padres have promoted outfielder Travis Jankowski from Triple-A to the Major Leagues. Jankowski was a first-round pick (44th overall) by the Padres in 2012. Jankowski, 24, has split the 2015 season between Double-A San Antonio and Triple-A El Paso, batting a combined .335/.413/.425 with 32 stolen bases. He will be uniform for the Padres on Wednesday, but is not in the starting lineup against the Braves. He has never played in the big-leagues. "He put himself on our road map and made it easier to make this call," general manager A.J. Preller said Tuesday, per MLB.com. "He earned his way up, for sure."
