Notes on prospects who stood out yesterday, including Reds outfielder Jesse Winker.

Prospect of the Night: Jesse Winker, OF, Reds (Bakersfield, A+): 2-4, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 BB, K.

It will be a good test to see how much of this improvement is maintained once he leaves Bakersfield, but for now, the returns on the 49th-overall pick in 2012 are very good.
