Drafted by the Marlins in 1995 and selected by the then-Devil Rays in the 1997 expansion draft, Winn played five seasons in Tampa Bay before moving on to Seattle, San Francisco, New York, and St. Louis.
His best season came in 2005, when he hit .306 with a career-high 20 homers for the Mariners and Giants, and Winn made his lone All-Star team for the Rays in 2002.
He retires as a career .284 hitter with a .343 on-base percentage and .416 slugging percentage in 1,717 games and ranks 20th among active players with 215 steals. He was never a star, but Winn was a good, solid all-around outfielder for a decade and earned over $40 million.
