Jankowski is out of Saturday's lineup against the Giants, John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He is only hitting .150 with a 6:1 K:BB in 20 at-bats since being recalled from Triple-A on Sept. 18. Cory Spangenberg will start in left field and hit sixth.
Jankowski is not in the lineup fro Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports. Jankowski will take a seat for the second time in as many games with another lefty (Rich Hill) toeing the rubber for the Dodgers. In his place, Jabari Blash will draw another start in left field, batting seventh.
Jankowski is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers. Jankowski has started four straight games in the Padres' outfield since Jose Pirela (finger) was ruled out for the season, but he'll get Tuesday off after going hitless in his previous two starts. With Jankowski out, the Padres will send out an outfield of Jabari Blash, Manuel Margot and Hunter Renfroe (from left to right).
Jankowski is starting in left field and batting eighth Saturday against the Rockies. With Jose Pirela (finger) sidelined for the season, Jankowski has seen a slight uptick in playing time recently. He's picked up three outfield starts in the past five games, going 2-for-8 over that stretch, and it appears he could be in line to see the bulk of opportunities in left field down the stretch. Also look for Matt Szczur and Jabari Blash to pick up occasional starts.
Jankowski (foot) was optioned to Triple-A El Paso on Friday, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Jankowski has been rehabbing a foot injury in El Paso since July 22, and figures to start daily with the Triple-A team moving forward. During his assignment, he's gone 9-for-37 with three RBI but in 17 games with the Padres this year, Jankowski was hitting just .160/.263/.180. He needs more action at the minor-league level before rejoining the majors.
