Jankowski's wrist fracture hasn't healed properly and he's not close to a return, Bill Center of Padres.com reports. Jankowski was on a three-month timetable after undergoing surgery in March, but manager Andy Green said Thursday the 27-year-old is "nowhere close" to a return, as the bone hasn't healed the way the club would have liked. It remains to be seen if this extends Jankowki's timetable beyond the three months that was expected, but it seems possible based on this update. He slashed just .259/.332/.346 in 117 games last season, but he provided solid value on the basepaths with 24 steals.
Jankowski (wrist) was placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday. This is simply procedural, as Jankowksi is already slated to miss the first two months of the season after undergoing surgery to repair a fractured wrist earlier in the month. The move frees up a spot on the team's 40-man roster for Socrates Brito, who was claimed off waivers.
Jankowski was diagnosed Tuesday with a scaphoid fracture of his left wrist, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. The injury will require surgery and keep him out of action for around three months. The three-month timetable makes a debut at some point in June a best-case scenario. The Padres have excellent depth in the outfield, so Jankowski's injury means less competition for Manuel Margot in center field while simultaneously helping the case of Franchy Cordero. Wrist injuries have been known to sap players' power for months after they return, but Jankowski provides far more value with his speed (24 steals in 2018) than his bat (eight career homers in four seasons).
Jankowski was diagnosed with a broken left wrist after undergoing an MRI on Monday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Jankowski is expected to miss extended time after breaking his wrist on a diving attempt in the outfield during Sunday's exhibition, although an exact timetable for his return has yet to be set. This is a significant blow for the Padres, who will miss his left-handed bat and impressive speed.
Jankowski is scheduled to undergo an MRI after injuring his left wrist diving for a ball in the outfield Sunday, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports. Jankowski was walked off the field by the team trainer after an awkward landing. The details of his injury won't be revealed until the MRI results come back, which likely won't be until Monday morning at the earliest.
