Dodgers' Jose Ramos: Clear improvements at Double-A
Ramos is hitting .272 with eight home runs, four steals and a 23.7 percent strikeout rate in 32 games for Double-A Tulsa.
The 22-year-old outfielder struck out 32.7 percent of the time at High-A last year, so it's a positive to see his production pick up while his strikeouts trend down. Ramos is age-appropriate for a power hitter at Double-A, so he should remain at this level for a couple more months, but he could get a taste of Triple-A before season's end. He is a good enough athlete to play all three outfield spots, but his double-plus arm is a nice long-term fit in right field.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Jose Ramos: Scuffling since promotion
Ramos is hitting just .238/.284/.444 with two homers and two steals across 15 games since being promoted to High-A Great Lakes.
The new level hasn't been nearly as kind to him as Single-A was, with Ramos striking out in a startling 34.3 percent of his at-bats so far. He's still shown some pop with the two homers as well as three doubles and a pair of triples, but Ramos will need to make much more consistent contact to progress further up the ladder....

Dodgers' Jose Ramos: Doing his thing in High-A
Ramos is hitting .322/.412/.678 with four homers and 10 total extra-base hits across his first 14 games for High-A Rancho Cucamonga this season.
The 21-year-old outfielder continues to hit and hit wherever he goes, as he posted similarly spectacular numbers across rookie ball and Single-A last year. He does still strike out a bit too often (29.4 percent), which is practically the only knock on him as a prospect at this point, but he's also been walking reasonably often (11.8 percent), and when he hits the ball, he hits it very hard. Ramos doesn't yet have a ton of hype and may not be as good a prospect as fellow Dodgers outfielder Andy Pages, but he makes for a great scoop in deeper dynasty formats.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Jose Ramos: Flashes defensively
Ramos has seen little playing time this spring and is 0-for-3 at the plate, but he made an impressive leaping catch to rob a home run Sunday, True Blue LA reports.
It says something about the impression Ramos made last year that he's seeing any spring action at all; most guys who spent the prior season in Low-A don't get that opportunity. But after putting up a .313/.377/.559 line in 47 games for Rancho Cucamonga, Ramos has clearly gotten himself noticed. He's not a top-100 guy yet, but if he's able to deliver a similar performance this year, he's going to rocket up the rankings. It seems likely that he'll open the season in High-A, but nothing official has come out on that front yet.... See More ... See Less
