I'd like to see Winker against some stiffer competition. A singles hitter with a .434 BABIP scares me a bit. I LOVE the plate discipline, but that BABIP won't hold up forever.
Strikeouts are down too, just has not led to much production. Sluging is down big time though and even with some BABIP luck it is scary to see the power drop off like that. He is still a very intriguing prospect/trade bait but does not have a ton of value until he starts producing again.
