Scouts like to call players like Winker "famous" because he's been seen a lot. He is a showcase veteran who played for USA Baseball's 18-and-under team last summer and fall, tossing a shutout against Aruba. He also has played at high-profile Olympia High and was a teammate of Yankees prospect Mason Williams in 2010 and the last three years with righthander Walker Weickel, who is expected to go in the first two rounds. Winker helped lift Olympia to a tremendous spring, though it fell in the playoffs after winning its first 29 games. Winker is a lefthanded hitter and thrower who plays center field in high school but will be a corner outfielder or first baseman down the line because of modest athleticism. While he's a fine hitter with good balance and loft in his swing, that profile puts his bat at a premium, and Winker had just three home runs this spring. He's physical and has strength that allows him to drive the ball to all fields, and scouts have seen him hit good velocity in showcases. They laud his makeup and work ethic. Signability was a major question mark for the Florida recruit.
