Bats: Right Throws: Right

Semi-windup, average circle to over the top slot, hides the ball a bit. Slight hesitation in his lower half, but repeats and syncs well enough. Fastball come pretty easy out of the hand.

Pitch Type Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 55 92-94 95 Rides, spinny, changes eye levels with the pick. Command is merely average, but effective and can get swings and misses up.
SL 55 82-86 86 Best were hard 12-6 in the mid-80s with plus razorblade action. Shape could get slurvier in the low-80s. Didn't play as a true plus bat misser but effective pitch.
CH 40 86-89 89 Very inconsistent in shape. Can lack ideal velocity separation and play as a nondescript two-seam. When he pulled the string on it showed average scroogie action at 86.

Winckowski has a good frame and delivery and three useable major-league offerings. Change might sneak to fringy and make him a viable back-end starter. Not an ideal relief fall back, but if he can get to the mid-90s more consistently in sort bursts there's a potential good middle reliever as well.
