Outfielder Travis Jankowski has placed among the top prospects in the Midwest League, according to a poll of league managers and scouts conducted by Baseball America
The publication has the Lancaster Catholic graduate ranked 17th among the league's top 20 prospects.
Jankowski, the Padres' first round supplemental draft pick in June, hit .282 in 59 games for the Fort Wayne (Ind.) TinCaps with four triples and 17 stolen bases. Unfortunately, he broke a rib in the league championship series.
"He controls the strike zone and the barrel of the bat, working to get on base so he can unleash speed that grades as a 65 on the 20-85 scouting scale," wrote Jim Callis of Jankowski, who is a prototypical, lead-off hitting centerfielder.
Jankowski was the Most Valuable Player of the 2011 Cape Cod League, the premier college summer league in the nation.
