Pound for pound, Winn might have the most pure talent in the 2020 draft class. A legitimate two-way player, the Arkansas commit is overflowing with plus tools on both sides of the ball. As a hitter, he has bat speed, surprising raw power for his size (5-foot-11, 180 pounds) and plus speed that plays out of the box and on the bases. At shortstop, Winn is an exceptional athlete with massive arm strength, solid hands and impressive natural instincts. He's every bit as electric on the mound with a fastball that ranges from 92-98 mph, a hard slider he’s shown good feel to manipulate and a changeup that flashes plus. Teams are mixed whether Winn's upside is higher as a pitcher or hitter. He plays the game at a quicker speed than most, but that can get him into trouble. As a position player, scouts would like to see Winn slow the game down, be more consistent on routine plays at shortstop, stay within himself at the plate and chase fewer pitches out of the zone. On the mound, general inconsistency and his smaller frame lead to reliever concerns. Some wonder if he should continue playing both ways, as he at Jupiter last fall in what scouts say was one of the best two-way performances they have ever seen at the event—he flashed three plus pitches and produced exit velocities over 100 mph three times. Winn’s upside and talent are obvious, but questions about his size, role and the all-around polish persist.
