Talking with ... Padres outfielder Travis Jankowski

Travis Jankowski fractured his left wrist diving for a ball early in spring training, relegating him to the purgatory of extended spring training all year. On the plus side, that meant more date nights with his wife, Lindsey, TV show binging and time to bond with his toddler son, Bentley. One surprising twist on a long list of drawbacks (the Padres, for instance, really could use him in center field and on the bases) was a recovery protocol that did not allow Jankowski, a first-time father, to pick up his new son.
