Masyn Winn

21-Year-Old ShortstopSS
St. Louis Cardinals AAA
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Winn has a couple really loud tools in his plus speed and 80-grade arm, and he comfortably projects as the Cardinals' shortstop of the future, assuming they don't sign one of the big free agents at the position this offseason. He played at multiple levels as a 20-year-old, riding a .431 BABIP to dominance in 33 games at High-A before putting up middling numbers at Double-A (.258/.349/.432) and the Arizona Fall League (.294/.407/.353). He was very young for Double-A and the AFL, but it's pretty clear his BABIP-fueled run at High-A is the outlier. He just needs to hit for double-digit homer power with an OBP in the .330-.350 range to be a roto monster who hits high in the lineup and helps across the board while threatening for 30-steal seasons. However, his 19.8 Hard% suggests there's still some work to do to be that impactful against upper-level pitching. His median outcome might be closer to a bottom-third of the order hitter who is targeted for his stolen-base contributions. Read Past Outlooks

Opening year at Triple-A
SSSt. Louis Cardinals  AAA
March 31, 2023
Winn is beginning the 2023 season at Triple-A Memphis.
There was some thought that Winn might repeat Double-A for a bit, but he showed so well this spring that he's getting the boost to Triple-A just 10 days after his 21st birthday. The toolsy young shortstop slashed .333/.393/.556 with two home runs, two doubles, two triples and four stolen bases over 18 games (61 plate appearances) in the Grapefruit League. He seems certain to make his MLB debut at some point this summer.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
For fantasy, we want Winn, the No. 54 overall pick in last year's draft, to eventually focus full time on being a shortstop. Despite standing just 5-foot-11, 180 pounds, Winn's upper-90s fastball and breaking ball are each plus pitches, and his changeup has a chance to be a 60-grade pitch as well. He is also an elite athlete, which should help him harness his electric arsenal. For these reasons, St. Louis is developing him as a two-way player for now. However, if he were to be developed as a shortstop, his fantasy ceiling would rival that of any high school hitter in his draft class. He has plus raw power and is at least a plus runner, and while he currently chases too many pitches out of the zone, the expectation is that his hit tool would improve if he were focused solely on hitting. Winn continued to develop as a hitter and a pitcher at the alternate site after getting drafted.
