His walk rate is still extraordinary and he has cut down his K rate by almost 3% this year while also hitting for more power. I think Winker will be an impact player in Cincinnati.
I probably rank him higher than Ervin offensively right now, but I wonder if anyone who watches Dayton could describe whether he's a pull happy hitter? His spray chart seemed to indicate he (and Ervin) could use more of the field. Either way, at 19 years old, he's kicking butt.
