Scouting Report

Power is the name of the game with Winker. His power stacks up with anyone in the nation and he's already showing it against top flight pitching. There's some length to his swing, but not too many red flags beyond that. He clears his hips nicely and produces lift to the big parts of the park with ease. He also has a strong arm that will allow him to profile as a corner outfielder. His speed is fringy at this point but this is a player who is going to make a living with his left-handed power.
