    • Over his last four games, the 2014 Dominican Republic signee is 10 for his last 16 (.625) and has as many home runs in 48 games this season than he did in 115 for LoA Hickory in 2017. It’s safe to say that the 5’11”- 185 lb. lefty is having a breakout season.

Also, his 13 homers in 40 games this season is the same amount he hit in 122 games last year. Despite an assignment back to the HiA Cal League this season, Ramos has also seen drastic improvement in a few other offensive categories. He’s on pace to score 105 runs, drive in 123 and he’s increased his walk rate (12.9 from 7.8 in 2017). The 6’5″- 220 lb. lefty has also more than doubled his ISO from .146 mark in 2017 to .360 this season.
