Ramos has been sidelined during the Giants' Arizona instructional league camp since Oct. 8 with a strained left oblique, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
After the 2020 minor-league season was cancelled, Ramos was expected to pick up some much-needed competitive at-bats in the instructional league this fall, but the injury looks like it will cause him to miss out on that opportunity. Though the Giants are expecting Ramos will be back to full strength by spring training, he may not recover from the injury by the time instructional ball wraps up Nov. 12.
Ramos is receiving treatment for an infection in his leg, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
According to John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle, manager Gabe Kapler doesn't believe it's a serious concern, but he still didn't offer a recovery timeline for the young outfielder. Ramos was included in the team's 60-man roster pool as one of the organization's top prospects, but there's never been a high likelihood of him making his major-league debut in 2020.
Ramos made the Giants' 60-man roster.
As one of the Giants' top prospects and someone with upper-level experience, Ramos was a lock to get the invite to summer camp. That said, he was likely ticketed for Double-A under normal circumstances, so he probably won't see much MLB playing time in this shortened campaign.
Ramos (oblique) is expected to be sidelined roughly three weeks, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
The 20-year-old suffered a mild left oblique strain during Friday's Cactus League game against the Rockies while making a throw to home plate from the outfield, though he did hit a home run after sustaining the injury. Ramos will receive treatment this week before being reevaluated.
Ramos sustained a mild left oblique strain Friday and will be reevaluated later this week, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Ramos apparently suffered the injury while making a throw home from the outfield, and he won't receive an official recovery timetable until being reevaluated. The young outfielder is one of San Francisco's top prospects, so the team is likely to remain cautious in order to avoid any setbacks.
Ramos was promoted from High-A San Jose to Double-A Richmond on Thursday, freelance journalist Marc Delucchi reports.
The promotion was well-deserved for Ramos, who turns 20 in September. He was the third-youngest and third-best hitter in the California League. Richmond is an extremely pitcher-friendly ballpark, so it will be challenging for Ramos to carry over his success from the Cal League, without even considering he will be one of two 19-year-old hitters in the Eastern League. He will get his feet wet against Double-A pitching before likely returning to Richmond for the start of the 2020 season.

Ramos (hand) returned to action Wednesday for High-A San Jose and went 0-for-4 with one strikeout.
Ramos missed a day with a bruised hand. He is now hitting .306/.385/.500 with 13 home runs and six steals (on 13 attempts) in 77 games. Ramos has gotten a bit thicker since he was drafted in 2017, so the dream of him being a major asset in the stolen-base department is probably a thing of the past, but he still has significant upside at the plate. He is the third-youngest qualified hitter in the California League and has been the third-best hitter (145 wRC+) on the circuit.
X-rays on Ramos' hand were negative and he is day-to-day at High-A San Jose, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
He was struck in the left hand by a pitch in Monday's game, but fortunately it seems like he escaped with just a bruise. Ramos is the third-youngest qualified hitter in the California League, and he is the youngest non-Padres hitter in the league. Despite his youth, he has been the second-best hitter (147 wRC+) on the circuit and has upped his walk rate (6.5 BB% to 9.6 BB%) while also getting to more of his plus raw power (.151 ISO to .197 ISO) compared to what he did last year at Low-A.
Ramos was removed from Monday's action at High-A after being struck by a pitch on his left hand, play-by-play broadcaster for the San Jose Giants, Joe Ritzo, reports.
The severity of Ramos' injury is not known at this time, but he's likely headed for X-rays.
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.
Ramos (knee) was activated from the 7-day injured list Monday, play-by-play broadcaster for the San Jose Giants, Joe Ritzo, reports.
Ramos had been held out since April 24 due to a left knee sprain, but he's finally been cleared to return to game action with High-A San Jose. He slashed .270/.422/.587 with five homers and 11 RBI through his first 19 games of the 2019 campaign prior to suffering the injury.
Ramos (knee) is scheduled to play in an extended spring training game Tuesday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Ramos has been sidelined since April 24 with a sprained left LCL, but he's close to rejoining High-A San Jose. Prior to landing on the minor-league IL, Ramos hit .270/.422/.587 with five homers and 19 games for San Jose.
Ramos will miss 4-to-5 weeks with a sprained left LCL, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Ramos was placed on the minor-league injured list after tweaking his knee while swinging Wednesday. An MRI revealed that the issue was worse than a mere tweak, and he'll now miss several weeks. The 19-year-old had gotten off to a hot start in his first taste of High-A ball for San Jose, hitting .270/.422/.587 with five homers in 19 games.
Ramos (knee) was placed on the minor-league injured list Friday, San Jose Giants broadcaster Joe Ritzo reports.
Ramos tweaked his left knee during a swing Wednesday and now will be sidelined for at least a week. According to Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area, the 19-year-old has left knee soreness and will undergo an MRI.
Ramos appeared to tweak his left knee and exited High-A San Jose's game Wednesday, San Jose Giants' broadcaster Joe Ritzo reports.
Ramos was hit by a pitch in the area earlier in the game and might have further tweaked it while swinging. The 29-year-old attempted to remain in the game but eventually left after running out a double.
Ramos has recorded six hits in nine at-bats over his past two games at Low-A Augusta.
After going 0-for-14 in his preceding four games, Ramos has seemingly moved past the offensive drought in swift fashion with back-to-back multi-hit efforts. For the season, the outfielder is hitting .242/.317/.379 and has been caught stealing on six of his seven attempts this season. While the numbers aren't impressive on the surface, the fact that the 18-year-old Ramos is well below the median age for the South Atlantic League shouldn't be overlooked. Due to his sturdy 6-foot-2, 185-pound frame and excellent bat speed, Ramos projects to be a plus-power source and is viewed as the top prospect in the San Francisco system.
Ramos will open the year with Low-A Augusta, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
This comes as no surprise, as Ramos notched a 175 wRC+ in the AZL last year after getting drafted by the Giants with the No. 19 overall pick. Ramos' surface numbers were excellent, but his .500 BABIP and 31.8 percent strikeout rate suggest that some regression is coming. Don't panic if he struggles initially against full-season pitching, as he does not turn 19 until Sept. 7 and is oozing with fantasy-relevant tools.
Ramos was diagnosed with a concussion Tuesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Ramos -- who was selected by the Giants with the 19th pick of the 2017 draft -- has been tearing the cover off the ball with the club's rookie-level affiliate. Through 35 games, the impressive 17-year-old is hitting .348 with six homers and 10 stolen bases. He'll unfortunately be sidelined indefinitely as he works his way through the concussion protocol after being hit by a pitch in the head during Sunday's game.
