William Van Winkle is a 2007 OF/P/1B with a 6'3'', 220 lb. frame from Gainesville FL, who attends Gainesville HS. He has a very strong, well developed athletic body that looks like what football coaches are looking for at the linebacker position. Van Winkle has good agility for his size, running the 60 in 7.25. At the plate, Van Winkle has a very aggressive, full swing and shows plus, plus raw power on contact. It's an all of nothing approach but when Van Winkle makes contact, the ball jumps. He hit about five balls out during BP on a full size field, all of them to left center field. During games Van Winkle's balance and timing is inconsistent but the raw bat speed and power are still there. Defensively, Van Winkle shows very good outfield arm strength. He showed the same teype of arm strength on the mound, throwing 85 mph from a high energy delivery with a ncie 70 mph curveball. Van Winkle has lots of tools and looks like he's just beginning to learn how to use them. A good coach has a chance to get a lot out of this athlete.

William Van Winkle is a 2007 OF/P/1B with a 6'3'', 220 lb. frame from Gainesville FL, who attends Gainesville HS. He has a big frame and plus present strength. Van Winkle is mobile and athletic for his size. He ran the 60 in 7.35 and moves around the field well. He showed good defensive actions as a corner outfielder with a strong, accurate throwing arm. At the plate, Van Winkle takes a high energy, high effort swing that creates plenty of bat speed. He hits with low hands and a big hand hitch, which leaves his timing a bit random and usually late, but when he makes contact the ball jumps. If Van Winkle developed a more consistent way to get the bat started and maintainted a bit better balance in his swing, it would be easy to see him with plus power in the future. The strength and bat speed are there, along with the aggressiveness. Van Winkle also pitched a bit and showed some tools on the mound. He topped out at 84 mph from a high 3/4's release point and threw a tight 69 mph curveball.
