Cole Winn is pitching in the Puerto Rican Winter League

In 2021, Cole Winn was the number 5 ranked prospect in the Texas Rangers’ farm system, as listed by MLB Pipeline. He landed at number 3 in 2022 and dropped to number 28 in 2023. These rankings serve as a barometer for how things have gone for the Rangers’ promising pitching prospect.

Views among Rangers fans regarding Winn’s potential vary: some have written him off, while others remain on the fence, eagerly awaiting developments in 2024 for the 24-year-old right-hander.

I’m not here to tell you where you should stand but I am waiting to see what 2024 brings. The upcoming season stands as a make-or-break year for his career.

I do have some good news in reference to Coke Winn though. He has been pitching in the Puerto Rican Winter League for the Criollos de Caguas. I’m not saying he’s back, but things are trending back on the right path for him.

On a brighter note, Winn’s is playing in the Puerto Rican Winter League with the Criollos de Caguas. While it might be premature to declare a full comeback, there are positive signs indicating a return to the right path for him.

His stats include 5 starts and 20 innings pitched, with an earned run average (ERA) of 3.15. Although his walk rate remains relatively high, issuing 9 walks, it marks an improvement from his 7.0 walks per 9 innings during his time in Round Rock.

His numbers in Round Rock last season were nothing to write home about. They weren’t in 2022 either. In 2023, he pitched 101 innings and issued 79 walks. While in 2022 he pitched 121.2 innings and issued 87 walks. The command has been an issue it seems since he was hit by a line drive on April 26, 2022.

So again, compared to what we have been seeing, this is an improvement for Winn so things may be trending in the right direction. The 2024 season is going to be the most important one yet for Cole Winn.

Considering the contrast with his recent performances, Winn’s current progress hints at a positive trend as anticipation builds for the 2024 season.
