Travis Jankowski (OF, SD) - Week 21 Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 4% of leagues

ANALYSIS: San Diego Padres outfielder Travis Jankowski is one of the more explosive waiver wire pickups. He is an incredibly streaky player, which is maddening for fantasy owners. Guys like Jankowski are like deep ball receivers in fantasy football. You never know when they are gonna hit, but you definitely want them around when they do. The 27-year-old has 20 steals in 312 plate appearances, which is pretty good. True to his reputation, five of them have come in the last seven games.

Jankowski is owned in just 4% of leagues, and it is worth noting that he has cut his strikeout rate nearly in half this season while maintaining a 10.3% walk rate. He has also improved his contact greatly, and the gains in his approach have helped him to a career best batting line of .259/.338/.331. Jankowski is here for steals and if he gets on base more often, it stands to reason that weeks with four or five swipes could happen more often.
