Jesse Winker News
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Jesse Winker (side) will be out for the remainder of the regular season, according to Reds manager David Bell. Winker landed on the injured list with an intercostal strain on September 18. He had been sidelined for about a month with the same injury before making a brief return in mid-September. The 28-year-old lefty had a fantastic season in 2021. Over 110 games, he slashed .305/.394/.556 with 24 home runs, 71 RBI and 77 runs. He raised his fantasy stock immensely this year and should be one of the first 10 outfielders off the board in most drafts next spring.
The Cincinnati Reds placed outfielder Jesse Winker (side) on the 10-day injured list on Saturday due to an intercostal strain. Winker has provided both the Reds and fantasy managers with plenty of production so far this season. In 485 plate appearances, the 28-year-old is batting .305 with a .394 on-base percentage, 24 home runs, and a stolen base. Max Schrock and Aristides Aquino both figure to see more playing time in left field with Winker on the injured list. Schrock could be worth an add in deeper leagues for the season's final weeks. The 26-year-old is hitting .321 with a .375 on-base percentage, two home runs, and a stolen base in 88 plate appearances for the Reds this season.
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Jesse Winker (ribs) could be back in the lineup on Friday against the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reported Thursday. Winker has been rehabbing with Triple-A Louisville as he bounces back from an intercostal strain that sidelined him back in August. The 28-year-old lefty was having his best season yet prior to injury, slashing .307/.395/.560 with 24 home runs, 71 RBI, and 77 runs scored on 129 hits. Plus, he's hitting .294/.368/.706 with two home runs against the Dodgers this season.
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Jesse Winker had a 2020 season that, in many ways, reflected the arc of his career. With consistent playing time at DH (including against left-handed pitchers), Winker slashed .255/.388/.544 with 12 home runs, 23 RBI, and 27 runs scored. He doubled his HR count from 2019 in half as many plate appearances and posted a career-high 25.1% strikeout rate and 15.3% walk rate. Winker hit the ball hard throughout the season with an average exit velocity and hard-hit rate both in the 90th percentile of baseball. However, August was Winker's only productive month, when he slashed an impressive .369/.459/.798 with 10 of his 12 total HR. If Winker can again receive regular playing time and hit for both average and power consistently, he will be a valuable fantasy player. However, all of the above-mentioned things would have to happen for that to be true. Winker's high ceiling/low floor dynamic makes his current ADP of 208 seem overall reasonable.
