5/1/18 – Miss. St. commit turned in a stellar, complete game, 97-pitch performance. Winn's FB was explosive and missing bats all night sitting at 92-94 topping out at 95. CB was almost unhittable tonight with sharp late breaking movement at 76-78. The SL was major league, and his best pitch tonight at 84-85 with tilt and late break. He only threw a few CH sitting at 81-83. Winn tallied 13 strikeouts, gave up 3 hits, 0 walks, for the shutout road win at Mater Dei. With this performance in front of almost every MLB team, Winn's stock is rising.

4/24/18 - Cole Winn, a Mississippi State commit, started the first game of a three game series last week and did not disappoint the 35+ scouts in attendance. The righty brilliant from the outset before finishing the night with 11 strikeouts, two walks, and one hit on 83 pitches in six innings pitched. Winn threw 16 first pitch strikes to the 21 batters he faced and induced five groundouts and two flyouts. Working primarily 93-95 mph and touching 96 mph, Winn's fastball shows lots of life through the zone with downhill angle generated from a strong backside. Winn's curveball was it's usual plus pitch with it's 12-6 shape and tight, sharp biting action. The pitch worked 76-78 mph and touched 79 mph several times and was a swing-and-miss pitch pretty much all night - only once did an opposing hitter get the bat on it. Winn's slider, a current plus pitch, was once again the main attraction for scouts. At 83-86 mph, the pitch shows late tilt when entering the zone on a downhill angle that left hitters virtually defenseless. Winn's velocity dipped a bit in the fifth inning after a long wait due to a big inning by his team's offense, but he picked it back up in the sixth where he was 93-94 mph with the fastball, and 82-84 mph with his slider. For good measure Winn added a sac-fly RBI to his stats this night.

4/17/18 – It took the Miss. St. commit 84 pitches in 6 innings of work to get the 2 hit, 0 walks, shutout win against the JSerra Lions. Winn was dominant in his second career Trinity League start, striking out 11 batters. He was sitting 92-94 with movement and touched 95 a couple times. CB was 76-78 with tight rotation, and the SL he displayed tonight was major league at 83-84. Winn only threw a few CH, but no need to.

4/10/18 – In a highly anticipated opening Trinity League matchup against St. John Bosco, returning League champs, Winn, the Miss. St. commit scuffled out of the gate to a full crowd and MLB scouts on hand. He gave up 3 runs in the first, while struggling to command. The rest of the night Winn was on point and sharp, not allowing another run. Winn turned in a 5.0 IP, 9 strikeout, 2 hit, 2-walk performance. His FB touched 95 in the 1st and sat 92-93 the rest of the way. His CB had some bite to it at 75; he featured his late-breaking SL at 81MPH and mixed in a few CH's at 81MPH.

2/28/18 – On a cold night at Hart Park in Orange, Ca. and MLB scouts on hand, the big right-hander was on and sharper than we've seen to date. A defensive hiccup in the top of the 2nd on a 1st & and 3rd situation cost him the decision, but Winn featured the stuff that will get his name called in early the June MLB Draft. His FB was 92-96mph with cut, sitting at 94 mph. Curveball was 76-77 mph with shape, and changeup at 82-83 mph. In 5 innings of work Winn scattered 3 hits, 1 run, and 9 strikeouts.

2/17/18 - Mississippi State commit. Arguably the best pitching prospect in the state. Two-way player (1B) with a large, durable,athletic 6-foot-2, 205-pounds, MLB pitcher frame with long arms and legs. Presently has overall strength and projection to put on weight and muscle with age and maturity. Three-pitch mix with the ability to get outs with all three pitches. Winn features a commanding, heavy, running fastball sitting at 93-94 mph, topping out at 96-97 mph. Sharp, late breaking curveball with excellent shape and depth at 73-76 mph, a developing change-up with fade, but lacks finish at 83-84 mph. Winn has a strong presence and demeanor on the mound with super clean mechanics, smooth/balanced delivery and arm action that is repeatable. Pitchability is very high. Winn displays a high level of competitiveness, bullish like conviction and characteristics of a high round MLB draft pick.

8/10/17 - Returned to the mound for one inning and was absolutely dominant. His fastball was 92-94 and he struck out the side—one on his fastball and two on wipeout sliders. The video includes every pitch from his inning, sans the first pitch to the second batter, which was a strike.

8/7/17 - Pitched two innings for the Reds, allowing a walk and striking out two. He has an athletic delivery and sat 90-92. His slider was sharp and he threw one to a batter’s back foot for his first strikeout. He had 10/4 tilt, but showed depth as well.

4-13-17
6-foot-2, 190 pounds. Went 5 innings, hit 92 once worked at 89-90, only because he could,  fastball showed excellent life and good riding action.  Slider was very good at 77-78, and was his out pitch for much of today, late sliding action that kept the Northridge hitters off balance and then used combination of change and curveball at 74 and 75 for his third pitch, used effectively. He commanded the outside part of the plate with all of his pitches. Went 5 innings, 2 hits and had 12 strikeouts. On the season Winn is 5-0 with a 0.94 ERA. In 30 innings has given up 12 hits, 7 walks, and has 58 strikeouts. 

2-26-17
6-foot-2 190 pounds. Bats and throws right. Has gotten a lot stronger. Impressive on the mound today. Everything works well. Arm is loose and electric from a nasty 3/4 arm slot. Great extension to the plate with good leg drive. Fastball was 90-92 mph touching 93 a couple of times. Ball jumps. Wipeout slider at 76-77 mph with late depth. Changeup lives at 80-81 mph, thrown for strikes. One of the top RHP pitchers in the country. Senior year could be living 95-97 mph easily. 

10-1-16
6-foot-2, 180 pounds. Winn is one of the top pitchers in his age class in the country. Arm is flat out electric. In two innings of work struck out all 6 batters. Fastball was 90-91 mph, but he has touched 93 before. Has a wipeout slider with late depth at 76-77 mph. Solid change at same arm speed that lives at 81-82 mph. Winn over the last year has impressed many scouts across the country, and recently impressed at Jupiter playing for the Houston Astros Scout team where he struck out 8 in 3 innings.

8-1-16
6-foot-1, 170 pounds. The Notre Dame commit was really impressive at our Top Prospect Games on August 6th and 7th, and also showed very well in last June's Junior Sunbelt Tournament for Team Colorado. Since last rankings, Winn's fastball has improved from 87-88 to an explosive 92 mph on multiple occassions at the Top Prospect Games, living at 90-91. Arm is loose and works extremely well with rest of his body. With his body and frame he projects to plus 95 mph easily. Armed with a wipeout slider at 76 mph with depth. Expect Winn to move up in the overall rankings as well.

4-7-16

6-foot-1, 170 pounds. Winn has recently committed to Notre Dame. Winn is armed with a fastball that lives between 87-89 mph, and projects to increase when he puts on some more weight. Winn has come on the seen in 2016. When Winn learns to have more fastball command he's going to be even more of a force. He has currently pitched 16 innings and has 27 strikeouts on the season.
