Padres' Jankowski went undercover to try and sell his jersey

The San Diego Padres aren’t a good team. The Friars are 13-20 this season, sitting at fourth place in the NL West, eight games back of the first place Colorado Rockies. They also don’t have very many recognizable players, with star first baseman Wil Myers and veteran starter Jered Weaver standing out from a pack of more anonymous players, both of the “young” and “journeyman”...

WATCH: Wil Myers gets beaned by brother during HR Derby

Wil Myers may have been the victim of some sibling revenge during Monday’s Home Run Derby at Petco Park. The San Diego Padres first baseman was the hometown representative participating in the event and made it a family affair by asking his brother, Beau, to be his pitcher.
