Winker has been the top outfield prospect in the Reds organization for a few years, showcasing all of the tools necessary to be successful at the next level. The Reds have been aggressive in their handling of the 2012 first round pick Winker and he has responded each time. He was promoted to Double-A by the end of 2014. He was allowed to develop for the entire 2015 season in Double-A, before starting the 2016 season in Triple-A. The speed is the only tool that has slowed for Winker, but that is natural with the power development. He is a career .290 Minor League hitter with an OPS over .850, which is impressive with the aggressive track that the Reds have him on.
