Player Outlook
Jesse Winker struggled in 2022 for Seattle with a .688 OPS, and he was even worst last season after being shipped to Milwaukee with a .567 OPS. He played in just 61 games for the Brewers due to injuries and said his struggles stemmed from the recoveries of multiple surgeries last offseason, but two straight poor campaigns can't be ignored. The veteran slugger was an All-Star for the Reds in 2021 with a 143 OPS+ and is still only 30 years old, so there's still plenty of runway to turn things around. Winker landed a minor-league contract with Washington during the offseason, which is probably an ideal landing spot in terms of potential playing time in 2024. A spot on the Opening Day roster is realistic with a decent showing in camp.

  • Nationals' Jesse Winker: No structural damage in knee

    Winker said after Friday's game versus Tampa Bay that imaging had revealed no structural damage in his right knee, and he's hoping he'll be able to play Saturday, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.

He had to come out of the game early and was noticeably limping as he walked to the dugout, though it appears he managed to avoid a significant injury. Winker's defensive duties could be limited the rest of the season, as top prospect James Wood is expected to join the big-league roster Monday and take over in left field.
