    Kal Daniels is (hopefully) a great comp for Winker. Just looking at Kal's stats after Rookie ball, he had a bad year at age 19 in the Midwest League and then his hitting just took off.

    His major league lifetime OPS was .861 with a .382 OBP and that includes some weak seasons at the end.

    Kal was a very solid left handed hitter with good but not great power who hit very consistently during his main years. Corner outfielder not known for defense.

    Hopefully Winker can become a hitter at Kal's level. That would be great.

    Daniels was a lifetime 138 OPS+ bat. (This, after he really screwed up his knee in 1989, IIRC.) He couldn't field-- nor did he particularly want to.

    But if Winker comes even close Daniels offensively and is a league average RF (as he profiles to be), he'll be a stud.

    For comparison's sake, Jay Bruce has been a 118 OPS+ bat for two years running.

    Kal Daniels is one of my favorite hitters ever. Used the whole field with a short powerful swing. Superb eye. Could have been a great one but for some injuries and a "have bat will travel" approach to things.
