How does Jesse Winker compare to recent teenagers?

Jesse Winker is off to a good start to the season with the Dayton Dragons. As of the writing of this, Winker is hitting .303/.401/.484 with 19 walks and 25 strikeouts as a teenager in the Midwest League. I went back over the eight seasons of the Midwest League and looked at the 149 teenagers who have come through the league. The average teenager coming through the league in that time hit .256/.321/.376.

Winker is off to a much better start than the average teenager, but how does it compare to the recent history of other players in the Midwest League as teenagers and how does he project moving forward?
