Winker has been on the prospect radar for a while. He played travel ball with Dante Bichette Jr. and is high school teammates with another top prospect for the 2012 draft, righthander Walker Weickel at Olympia High in Orlando.
The Florida recruit is a polished lefthanded hitter with big loft power, but his bat will have to carry him, as he's likely a future left fielder or first baseman. He has some arm strength, but is already a below-average runner with a thick lower half.
Winker has great makeup, is a student of the game and has a brother, Joey, in pro ball with the Dodgers.
