Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 60 93-96 98 Gets good extension, pitch is straight but heavy and has late life, will elevate to get swing and misses; Velocity will sit upper-nineties in bullpen role. Profiles as plus pitch with above average command.
Changeup 55 83-85 85 Replicates arm speed well, deceptive, pitch will fade away from right handed hitters. Still developing feel, but has some swing and miss potential.
Slider 50 87-89 89 Currently inconsistent with shape, when it's right has some lateral movement and plays well off of the fastball; projects as a future average pitch.

Winckowski has a classic starter's build, tall and athletic with some growth projection remaining. The fastball and change combination play well off each other both having some swing-and-miss qualities and projecting to be above average. If he can find some consistency to the slider, he profiles as a back of the rotation arm. Without, there is still enough to become a high-leverage setup man in the bullpen.
