June 9, 2018 — Lancaster JetHawks (High-A, California League
Good night to have a good night; Roberto Ramos officially made the 2018 Cal League All-Star Team and enjoyed a two-homer night here on the 9th, including one long bomb off highly-rated San Diego Padres pitching prospect Adrian Morejon. Ramos may not have much of an overall game or projectable tools beyond the mid-level minors going for him, but man, he’s got pull power that plays perfectly right into Lancaster wind tunnel in right-center field. For me, his lack of overall tools across the game, poor pitch recognition, and poor plate discipline make it pretty unlikely that he’ll do too much of anything in the upper minors beyond this point, but hey — let him eat and enjoy it in High-A this summer; he’s having the season of a lifetime here in Lancaster. Still organizational depth for me long-term, but who knows… if any organization needs/rewards raw power right now, it’s the Colorado Rockies.

April 5-6, 2018 — Lancaster JetHawks (High-A, California League)
As big and as strong as ever now in his third year in the Cal League (one season virtually completely lost to injury); looks like he’s added a bit of weight in the offseason this year — a little heavier than the leaned out guy he was a year ago in Lancaster. Will bear watching as the season goes on to see if it’s a conscious choice (i.e., to help keep weight on through the long year) … As powerful and as pull-heavy at the plate as ever; the book is out on him and Modesto shifted pretty radically against Ramos several times with some success early this month. Will also bear watching here to see how he adjusts to the shift and/or if he tries to hit through it. Raw power is there, and he’ll have fun in Lancaster, but relatively limited elsewhere and will need power bat to be carrying tool without real hit tool or any defensive/speed skills of significant note … Behind schedule a little bit having to repeat in Lancaster after a decent enough season there in 2017; power profile plays well for him and that’ll have to be his carrying tool moving forward. Not a ton here to write home about defensively, on the bases, etc.; one-tool guy who must produce pop to advance, and even then he’s blocked in an organization relatively deep with power bats. Margin for error isn’t great; we’ll see how Roberto Ramos fares as 2018 wears on; feels like most realistic long-term projection is as organizational depth for the Colorado Rockies.

  2. […] June 9, 2018 — Lake Elsinore Storm (High-A, California League) Tall, slightly open stance; decent bat speed with pretty heavy pull orientation in approach. Big, big power stroke, particularly to his pull side in right field; will hit his fair share of towering shots. Huge raw power in BP, but question whether he’ll make enough contact to produce pop on a consistent basis at higher levels; will get awfully pull-happy approach and is susceptible to getting out front, rolling over, swinging through off-speed down and away, etc. Strikes out quite a bit; feast or famine guy, reminds me a bit of Colorado Rockies first base prospect Roberto Ramos.
