Brewers' Jesse Winker: No limitations in camp
Winker (neck, knee) has been working out at the Brewers' spring training complex in Arizona and will not face any restrictions at the start of spring training.
Winker is coming back from a minor knee surgery and also an operation on his neck in which he had a herniated disc replaced. The neck injury in particular seemed debilitating, as Winker sunk to a .688 OPS in 2022, but it sounds like he'll head into 2023 with a clean bill of health. The 29-year-old also had a major ballpark upgrade when he was traded from Seattle to Milwaukee over the offseason, giving him a good shot to bounce back this year.... See More ... See Less
Brewers' Jesse Winker: Sent to Milwaukee
Winker (neck, knee) and Abraham Toro were traded from the Mariners to the Brewers on Friday in exchange for Kolten Wong and cash considerations, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Winker endured a rough 2022 campaign after he was acquired by Seattle and had a .688 OPS in 136 games, and he then required knee and neck surgeries after the season. Winker will earn $8.25 million in 2023, which is the final year of his contract. He should see action in the corner outfield and at designated hitter with the Brewers.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Jesse Winker: Needs knee, neck surgeries
GM Jerry Dipoto announced Wednesday that Winker underwent knee surgery last week and is also scheduled for neck surgery, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.
The 29-year-old landed on the injured list with a neck injury in early October, and he's apparently also dealing with a knee issue. The injuries capped a season to forget for Winker, who posted a career-worst .219/.344/.344 slash line in 136 games after being acquired from the Reds in March. Assuming he's healthy, Winker is likely to open spring training as the favorite to start in left field to open 2023, but his disappointing first season in Seattle could leave him with a short leash....

Mariners' Jesse Winker: Likely done for 2022
Mariners manager Scott Servais said Wednesday that Winker (neck) has been placed on the 10-day injured list and is unlikely to return for the postseason, Shannon Drayer of Seattle Sports 710 AM reports.
Seattle made the decision to deactivate Winker after reviewing the results of the MRI he underwent earlier Wednesday. The 29-year-old is on the Mariners' books for 2023 after inking a two-year, $14.5 million deal in June, but he may be on a short leash for an everyday role after struggling in his first season in Seattle. Winker will finish the 2022 campaign with a .219/.344/.344 slash line to go with 14 home runs, 53 RBI and 51 runs in 136 games.... See More ... See Less

Mariners' Jesse Winker: Tending to neck issue
Mariners manager Scott Servais said Winker was scratched from the lineup ahead of Monday's 4-3 loss to the Tigers due to a neck issue, Curtis Crabtree of Fox 13 Seattle reports.
The injury looks to be a day-to-day concern, but it could be enough to keep Winker on the bench for both ends of Tuesday's doubleheader with Detroit. Sam Haggerty also departed Monday's game with a groin injury and is also iffy for the twin bill, potentially leaving the Mariners shorthanded in the outfield.... See More ... See Less

Mariners' Jesse Winker: Prevents shutout Sunday
Winker went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a walk in Sunday's 10-3 loss to the Athletics.
It took until the ninth inning, but Winker helped the Mariners avoid a shutout with his three-run blast. It was his first extra-base hit in 15 games, and his first homer since Aug. 17, as the outfielder has endured a rough second half of the campaign. The extended slump has dropped his slash line to .219/.344/.344 with 14 homers, 53 RBI, 51 runs scored and 15 doubles through 136 contests. On the bright side, he's hit safely in four of his last five games.... See More ... See Less
