    Winker is a LH, high BA, high OBP hitter.

    Bring him up. We can use him against Verlander tomorrow.

    I just heard on the radio that he's being converted to a pitcher.

    Oh, I'm sorry. I thought we were talking about things we thought would never happen.

    Haha. He is a pitcher though too. But I guess which top HS picks aren't also pitchers for their HS teams? Was Bruce a pitcher in HS? I imagine he could throw in upper 80's from the left side.

    Some scouts believed he could make it as a left-handed pitcher, but the consensus was that he's destined to be a hitter.

    After 32 ABs with the Mustangs, Winker is raking to the tune of .375 (.957 OPS):

    Looking like a great pick.

    Think he can be accelerated so he plays LF for the Reds by, say, the fourth of July?

    I'd like to see Winker (RF), Rahier (3B), Rosa (LF) and Washingon (2B) move through the system together.

    I'd like to see Rosa play better. Hasn't shown much so far.

    I don't worry about HS guys (or younger) stuggling too much the first couple of years. The raw tools are there though. Next year is a big year for them though. I do think that makes HS giys who have early success all the more impressive.

    I know it is WAY early, but I like this Winker kid. He knows how to swing a bat, and his walks show that he knows how NOT to swing the bat!

    Check out these numbers: Batting average is .413, OBP is .533, and SLG is .500. In 13 games, he has 12 walks and 13 K's.

    How is his defense in the OF looking?

    I just watched #2 overall pick Byron Buxton play today in a GCL game. He's lost. He's 1-27. Saw him K 3 times. Amazing seeing what a HS draft pick is doing in Billings compared to another in GCL, especially as the #2 overall.
