If that's the case, the following 1st round picks have performed at about the same level statistically as Winker:
(Not as much patience, more power)
Dahl's the only hitter who's had as good a year at as high a level. (I'd argue better.)
(Vincent Gallo, despite striking out 27+% of the time, has had a better season statistically, but is in a lower league. Addison Russell is now in a higher league, but put up almost all his premier numbers in a lower one.)
Nice company, to be sure.
