Jesse Winker - OF CIN

Recommended Posts

1/4 with a HR in the 1st inning yesterday of a LHP.

He had 3 HR in 60 games of first half but has 4 in the last 27 games. He now has as many extra base hits in July as he had in April and May combined.

0-3 today, but had 2 outfield assists.

One question about him entering the year was will he be able to play an effective corner OF spot? Seeing him perform in the field is almost just as important as with the bat at this point in his career. The Reds know the kid can hit and draw walks.

Really strong .316/.426/.516 second half for this guy, and consensus prospect rankings suggest that scouts like his pedigree and approach and so forth.

Is Trot Nixon a reasonable comp?

I think so. Maybe Corey Dickerson also.

Any idea on an ETA? Been hearing it could be this year, but things have gone pretty quiet on him

Dick Williams in the Reds front office said on the radio that Winkler would be up this year. Timeline is uncertain because I think the Reds really want him to replace Bruce in right if they can deal him (as they tried to do in the offseason/Spring).

Just a pure guess here, but I don't think it'll be before the trade deadline. Like the poster above said, they wanna move Bruce and it's not like Winker is annihilating the ball right now

If Bruce gets traded, is he going to be called up? He's currently on the DL with a wrist injury and he hasn't shown any power (2 HRs) in AAA. His other skills are still there (33 BBs: 32 Ks), though.

Since being recalled to AAA after rehab:

 

.409 avg

3 Doubles

2 RBI

3 Runs

3 BB

2 K

 

Guy isn't going to be a massive power bat, but is going to be an OBP and runs scored machine. It'll be interesting to see what happens when Bruce gets dealt

A lot of scouts tend to believe he's going to develop some power along the way.

Watching him play last week, he definitely carries himself like he belongs in the show. Very classy, didn't respond to the hecklers, and plays a solid game. Hopefully he turns into something special for the Reds. Lord knows they need it.

If CIN does deal Jay Bruce, what are the chances Winker is brought up for a cup of coffee sooner rather than later?

I don't see Winker up until September, especially with all the injuries he's dealt with this year.  Scott Schebler will most likely get the first shot to replace Bruce.
