Winker is AFL player of week
The Reds No. 2 prospect, OF Jesse Winker, is off to a nice start in the Arizona Fall League. On Tuesday, Winker was named the AFL Player of the Week.
In the first week of play for the Surprise Saguaros, Winker leads the AFL with seven RBIs, a .909 slugging percentage and 1.472 OPS and was fourth with a .563 on-base percentage. He was 5-for-11 (.455) with two doubles, one home run and scored four runs in three games.
The 21-year-old Winker, who was with Double-A Pensacola, hadn’t played any games since July 17 because of a right wrist tendon injury sustained in a car accident.
