San Francisco Giants A+
2019 Fantasy Outlook
One of the toolsiest players from the 2017 draft, Ramos played the entire 2018 season as an 18-year-old at Low-A, which is important to remember when evaluating his performance. He was the second-youngest qualified hitter in the Sally League and was still slightly better (104 wRC+) than the league’s average hitter. Ramos was a plus runner with at least 60-grade raw power when he signed, but he has started to fill out his 6-foot-2 frame and no longer posts plus run times -- he was 8-for-15 on stolen-base attempts. His 2017 AZL numbers are much more impressive at first glance, but Ramos actually made positive strides as a hitter in 2018. He cut his strikeout rate from 31.8% to 25.4% and used the whole field more often (22.2 Oppo% in 2017, 33.8 Oppo% in 2018). Given his age and power potential, Ramos still has a chance to be a quality everyday right fielder, but his declining speed makes it less likely that he turns into the fantasy force many were hoping for.

Ramos went 4-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and three runs for High-A San Jose in its 9-4 win over Modesto on Tuesday.
Since returning from a left knee injury May 27, Ramos has gone 12-for-26 (.462 average) with four extra-base knocks. The toolsy 19-year-old is one of the youngest players in the California League, but he hasn't been fazed by the jump in competition thus far.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
The 19th overall pick in last year's draft, Ramos gets compared to Yoenis Cespedes for his size and swing. While he is still quite raw, he has the upside to surpass these comps with a better batting average and surprising speed for his size. He figures to continue to fill out his 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame, but for now he can handle center field. With quick hands and impressive bat speed, Ramos showed off his plus power in the AZL. He led the league with a .645 SLG and his .297 ISO ranked second among hitters with at least 150 plate appearances. He was expected to deal with more growing pains in his first pro season, but he was able to thrive despite a 31.8 percent strikeout rate, due in large part to his .500 BABIP. Ramos suffered a season-ending concussion in late August, but it is not expected to affect his offseason routine. He is already the top prospect in the Giants' system, and a top-10 dynasty-league target from last year's draft class.
