FEATURE: Winn's name called by St. Louis Cardinals with 54th overall pick in 2020 MLB Draft
"With the 54th pick the St. Louis Cardinals Masyn Winn." Winn stood up and hugged his longtime friend and high school teammate Nick Luckett and then one after another hugs were exchanged. One of the big questions around Winn heading into the draft is what would a team select him as. MLB Draft analysts considered him to be "one of the best two-way players in the draft". According to the MLB Draft Tracker, Winn's slot value - 54th overall - is valued at $1.34 million.
